Just putting this out there to see if there are any bright ideas.
Like most, my rear disc brake bake plates, well at leas the outer dust shield if the back plate has rotted and I'm now wondering what to do.
Nissan want £210 each so that's not happening.
Can't for the life of me find an after-market alternative and 2nd hand also not turning up anything.
So, I'm left with probably removing the dust shield part and just leaving it without one; as far as I can find out, the dust shield part of the back plate doesn't have to be there for the MOT.

Before I do that I started to wonder if anyone would be able to fabricate a new outer dust shield that I could then weld back onto the back plate after removal of the old one?

I'm guessing the consensus would be to just remove the dust shield although I'm open to any other bright ideas if there are any.

Car is 2012 T31 2.0dci

Rogue has the same plates. Maybe you have friends in the us and they can search. Looked Rockauto, but did not found.
