Re: Has anyone had this happen to them?

Poor bonding can allow water to get between the metal backing and friction material.
Things start to rust and eventually the bond is broken.
It happens on brake shoes in rear drums sometimes too.

Even poor paint on the backing plate can allow rusting which creeps into the bond.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
