I’ve been a mechanic for over 40 years, and I still remember my first oil change. After years of knowing little about the mechanics of my car, I was shocked by the amount of work that the mechanic had to do to get me to the mechanic to fix my car. After the initial oil change and check of fluids, I realized that I had forgotten to take off the brake pads and calipers.
This is a type of failure that can happen in any part of the car. I was already aware that the calipers were not in good shape when I had my oil change, because they were already wet from the previous winter. That meant they were also probably brittle, too, which can cause them to break at some point. So I knew I needed to get the brake pads off before I could replace them.
While I was washing the calipers off with the water and brake fluid, I noticed that I had also forgotten to put them on a test drive before I brought the car home. It was just a matter of time.
So I put them on and found that they were already broken. I don’t know what’s worse, that I had a few brake pads that were already wet, or that I had forgotten to put them on a test drive. But both are fixable. So if you do have brake pads that were already wet, don’t blame me. I’m sure you didn’t just forget to put them on a test drive.
If you want to get rid of them just remove them. If you have to remove them, then you will have to.
You can’t really blame anyone for this, you just have to be the responsible one. There’s no excuse for this.
The problem is if youve already damaged your car, then its even worse. First of all, the pads are wet, and secondly, the caliper is already damaged. So the fact that you couldnt put your pads on a test drive should not be blamed on you. But that doesn’t make it okay, nor does it make it a good thing.
The problem is that you can actually go and buy new brake pads and calipers to fix them. The problems arise when you dont have spare ones, because they dont last as long as you think they will. And the longer you wait, the more likely it is for your original brake pads to fail.
My car is still in the garage, so the good news is that you can get them to fix it. It would be nice if they could fix the brake pad but that isnt always possible.
The issue is that you have to be a car fanatic to do it, but the fact is that the only way to do it is to buy new brake pads and calipers.
