Looks like the bearing and drum separated. I see there are new clips holding the brake pads on. When was the last time the brakes were done and did you replace the drum? The bearing shouldn't come separated from the drum like that. Though I just discovered mine were kinda half off. I bet that was some scary #@$%

Wow, I bet it was scary. I would need new seats after that . Yeah that's not supposed to happen. It almost happened to me. I guess the machine shop never put the clips back in on mine .
