    Not fall apart but they do rust quickly. Fairly cheap to replace from Rates Ford. May do mine at the same time as the discs and pads come spring

    2 years in mine were rusted to hell.. take the rear discs off and rear hubs are worse.. being a ford its expected, but also think that some strong wheel cleaning products accelerate it also… If you take your car to a hand wash round here your having a brick acid & fairy wheel clean 🥺

    @Turbo-tone i was going to, but did not realise the whole hub has to come off to replace ☹️ Plan is to buy new get them coated good then do it in the summer.

    I’ve just ordered new parts to replace mine as the originals are so rotten they have fallen apart. Pretty shocking for five years old. I’ll post some before and after shots when I do the job 👍🏻

    I recently had my pads and discs changed so I replaced the splash guards at the same time as they needed doing.

    Why the hell do ford do it on every fast ford , they know that they are performance cars with performance parts engines wheels etc , so why do they use the cheapest crap on the components that hold it together and

     

    parts that supposed to give protection , So we have to fork out a bloody fortune to replace them BARSTARDS .😢😢

    Yea it is a lot of work and i need mine done also. Have two coming from Rates Ford, probably look at getting them powder coated to see if they last any longer. Also have to buy some of the tools to do it that you wouldn’t normally have.
