Hi
The back plates behind the front brake discs on my Colorado have rotted away. Does anybody bother replacing them or arenít they that important?

I just recent;y replaced mine, It's a lot of work on the colorado, I took the easier option of cutting the splash guards neatly so I could twist them onto the hub and avoid the need to press out the wheel bearing; which needs to be pressed out otherwise.

They're cheap enough so I'd recommend having them replaced and having them fitted the way I done them will save you a lot of labour if paying someone to fit them.

Sorry for the large pics, maybe a mod would resize them. You can see where I made a small cut to fit them over the hub.

Never bothered with mine and no problems after 5 years or so. Only one has gone so you could say I've got a perfect control experiment...
