I had not driven the Kia for three days, last time was when taking the dog to the park.

This morning I had gone about 1/4 mile to the stop sign and heard a loud (I mean LOUD) explosion.

Pulled over and got out of the car to see what happened.

Nothing seen until I opened the back door and some small metal parts fell out on the ground.

Looks like, several days ago, I shut the back door on part of the dog's safety collar and that quick connect part decided to explode.
No other damage other than a chunk missing from the lower rubber seal on the edge of the frame.

Picture shows the new replacement device and the remainder of the one that decided to explode.

Well, if that's your dog in my pic... then it looks like he's okay. Thank God!

(Although I have no idea how I managed to get a hold of his picture?!)

"It sounded like a rifle shot..."

You probably should look for a bullet hole...

;)

Wow, it must have taken quite a lot of power to make the metal bend almost straight! Weird stuff. I had a cigarette lighter explode when my car was left in the sun once, the shrapnel was everywhere! Glad I wasn't inside the car...
