    I have my 2016 explorer since January 2016.living in Quebec with a lot of snow and salt. Corrosion and rust started on my rear brake brackets. What is the solution ?

    I only have 36000 km

    Here is a picture of the rear brake on mine. On the road since October 31, 2016 and only 6700 kms. The way I look at it is that it's metal and it starts to rust likely before it even leaves the factory. The fronts are perfect.

    Mine was the same as you guys, I pulled the wheels and started the painful process of rust cleaner and a wire wheel on a drill. Then I painted them black. It is brutal, I was looking at a friends older Tahoe, no rust....another friends 2016 Jeep GC no rust.

    So I guess the rust is normal for me too.

    That was good work, you also cleaned up the suspension too. thumb.gif

    This is my 2016 Platinum with 22,500 miles, still fairly clean - not much weather to contend with here.

    Well, we do get some liquid sunshine (rain) every now and then, no snow or salt though. My brakes probably get the most water from my frequent car washes... LOL.
