Had to laugh about the no brake pads experience. I never drove like that, but accidentally had my daughter pump the brakes to "help" me bleed my BMW brakes with the caliper off...just about launched the piston out of the caliper.


I've been wrenching since I could hand my Dad a tool. Never did that before.

On reflection, I've decided that perhaps I'm a determined shade tree mechanic but perhaps not a competent one!

Ahhhh, introspection is such a curse. LOL
