Sorry to say that looking at the state of all the hub, disc, calliper, that is bad servicing. With decent regular servicing it shouldnt have got that bad.
I have had a similar problem, so changed the discs, pads and protectors. I also once found a loose piece of brake pad lining between the disc and protector...two garages failed to spot it.. DIY is sometimes best!Hello everyone. A loud grinding noise started coming from my rear brakes recently. You can only hear it on slow speeds.
I had a look at the disc brakes and the problem is obvious.

Both rear discs are very rusty but the van is being driven daily. So I imagine there must be a problem with calipers not functioning properly. Do you have any ideas what could have caused all this rust build up?
Stuff looks crispy.Just thought on this today whilst doing a service and got to the rear brakes.
in my humble opinion and others may disagree, the pic below shows what I would expect it to look like after servicing and it should apart from a bit of dust, stay more or less in this condition untill the next service when it gets the same treatment. Also note the thin layer of grease on the hubs, especially important with alloy wheels. View attachment 207004
