urgent help needed about car

guys i need your help. I got my car (ford) was just serviced 6 weeks ago and they said there was no problems. now today i was driving and my fbrakes completely went. it was really lucky i wasnt on a motorway. i called rac who told me that the flexi pipe had been rubbing off the hub and suggested (as they are not allowed to make statements) that this should have been picked up when it was serviced. He advised me to take pictures. My brakes were completely gone.

What are my rights? Can i prove it was faulty 6 weeks ago? Would they have to repair it? i've already had numerous problems with this garage (left me waiting til 9am to 4pm when it should have been ready at 1230pm. charged me £50 for telling me information i had already given them, gave me no paperwork and when i first bought my brand new car i had to get another one as someone had been smoking in my car and had left fags ends in the ashtray! i only go to this garage to get it serviced because ive got free servicing for life.

Well i can only assume the brake pipe would be the flexible pipe as the steels are on the back plate and axle so could not come into contact with the hub, the only way the flexible would come into and stay there to rub would be if the steels were bent so pushing the flexible onto the hub/tyre/wheel.
They could argue that you have run over something that has contacted with the pipe!, also i would not think a pipe, wether steel or flexible would last 6 weeks of continual rubbing, so its probally not as old as you think.
Might be one of these situations of 6 of one and half a dozen of the other.
You could always try the motor manufactures association or the actuall manufacturer or importer and tell them of your problems

I would suggest you get a vehicle check done independently to see if a service was indeed done at all then decide on the appropriate action afterwords, i suggest Watchdog if a services wanst carried out correctly followed by some legal action.
