So I take in my V for some miscellaneous items to be checked/fixed. I get a call from my service manager who informs me that a wheel-bolt lug on my rear right wheel is broken. I was like WTF?? So they had to order and replace the lug, and the entire brake and rotor assembly apparently.

Any ideas as to how this can happen? I have never torqued the bolts myself on my V, only the dealer has touched the wheels in the past few months.

If you don't have stock rims, you will probably find out how good your dealer is.

It sounds like your wheel was overtorqued somehow.

Simple, one bolt bad = warped rotor and hub. Been there. The force is enough off to cause that. Nice of your dealer to check the whole assembly!!

In my case, I cross threaded the 5th of 5 bolts on my M3. Ended up using locktite - figured WTF, can't hurt right? WRONG! I bent my hub and warped my rotor. Ask dealer to check the hub for squareness while they are at it. Otherwise, you'll put on a nice new rotor and just warp it again.
