First one for me. Did that fall apart from applying brakes or did they hit a curb?

Maybe they used a crow bar trying to remove a wheel?

I dont think they hit anything. Everything else looked good. Ticket said "brakes broke" and well, yeah its broke alright. No tellin what they did they have always brought it to the dealer for service. Like Tom said must be that damn ol' chinese tin that they call steel.
