Re: Changing Brake Pads

I must say in over 35 years of working on my own cars, I have never seen that before.

What would make someone even think that they could only put one pad on. What an idiot!

They are out there, and they vote!

My feelings exactly, luckily the damage wasn't too bad and the calipers still work, can't say the same thing for the poor rotor

Re: Changing Brake Pads

I swear, who ever owned this car before was a ****in moron. One of the passenger side lug nut is stripped, great. I tried using a small sized socket, got it on nice and snug, i go to open it up and my socket brakes.

Re: Changing Brake Pads

Damn I am amazed at the morons that work on cars. And people pay good money for that kind of work too! If they only knew...




This is my most recient issue with tools... It's why I only buy craftsman. And this is a 1/2" breaker bar!

Re: Changing Brake Pads

It's craftsman, they just give a new one. I went through 3 sockets on that same project, they ended up giving me impact sockets so I wouldn't break them anymore.
