So last night my cars brakes start squealing and then again this morning so I think "oh must be time for new pads"
So I take it to a small local shop that has been fair to me in the past and tell him just do the minimum to fix it as I need all my cash for rebuilding my bike engine right now.
So I leave it with him and go for lunch.
He calls me and says all my calipers are seized and my rotors are shot and everything must be replaced.
After some haggling I get him down to $500 to replace the back calipers and pads,but I am still not happy and finally say "just put it back together I'll do a basic repair myself"
So I get it home and have a look
Only one wheel needs pads everything else is good
Pads on the front are like new and back drivers side need replaced.
So take off the wheel pop out old pads and pop in new ones.
Nothing is seized and takes less than an hour with hand tools.
The mechanics first quote was over $700 then dropped it to $500
I did it for $35 in parts and an hour of my time.
Moral of the story? Automotive Mechanics are full of shit!
