    Well here are the end results...…..

    When I first had this ABS problem. I pulled the wheels, all brake pads has 10+ mm thickness and the rotors on the outside looked fine with 100% of the pads wiping the rotor. You can not see the inner side face of the rotor due to the complete coverage of the rotor with the dust shield and caliper. I assumed that since the inner brake pads were 10+ mm and the outside rotor face was wearing properly, the inside face of the rotor should be the same. VCDS indicated that my right rear wheel speed during my braking tests was different from the other 3 wheels. So I decided to look at that RR wheel further. I pulled the caliper to look at the inner rotor face and it was ruined. Looked at the other LR rotor inner face and it was ruined also.

    I replaced the rear rotors and brake pads and the early ABS braking problem went away. All braking is back to normal. So a warning to everyone inspecting their rotors you really need to pull the Audi Q5 caliper to look at the inner rotor face. It is impossible to see the face without removing the caliper.

    Some information on the rear rotor and brake pad replacement. I purchased Zimmerman Z coated rear rotors (2) and Brembo ceramic brake pads (rear set) from EuroupaParts.com for $172 plus $22 Fedex shipping from NJ to PA. Great brake pedal feel and close to zero dust. Took about an hour of my labor to change rotors and pads, using VCDS to retract the EPB.

    Here is the photo of the rear rotor inner faces, outside faces looked perfectly fine. I live in PA with a lot of salted roads and the inner rotor faces just don't get washed off due to the dust shields as much as the outside rotor faces. This is just a case of major rotor corrosion.

    Please did you take notice how the rotors say "Germany" however, not "MADE in GERMANY"?
    I have some great salt recommendations for your wounds large fragment...........

    Do you believe if I speculate a brine corrosion ingress is the most likely cause?

    That wheel has to be hotter with a temp gun no?

    In addition to what Uwe aforementioned don't forget the sliders and pad contact surface's!

    They were the original 2014 Q5 factory rotors, where they were made, who knows!
