Question time! I'm getting myself EBC Green Stuff brakes for my car, the shop I went to last time said they replace the brake fluids no matter what and I think I have 27k mi on my car, don't remember
Would I be able to get away with just replacing the pads and holding off on the fluids or.. would it be best to get fluids replaced too? I wish there was a Haynes manual for Scions, but they have yet to make one period.
I wouldn't worry about it. Shops like that probably don't bother with bleeding brakes. They have those sweet pumps that cycle fresh fluid through the whole system. It's a lot faster and easier for the shop and brake fluid ain't that expensive anyway.
Hrm... It was $300.80 ( ) for the guy to put the vinyl on and then $6500 to repair the actual damaged areas of the car. So $6800-ish.
Very happy with the vinyl this time around. They took my bumper off and the vinyl guy fit it behind the bumper Still have a strange scratchy sound when I accelerate, and when I lean down to the speaker in the door it gets louder.
You'd think the dealer would be a good place to go, but they're not. I don't trust their techs at all. The techs are paid hourly and get incentives to push out a certain number of cars daily. When I can I'm going to have the body shop take the door panel off and look at how they put it back together.
Since I got my car back I noticed the tab to secure the wiper blade on the arm has popped out on occasion which I push back in to place. Today I had time to look at why it has started doing that. Apparently, for some odd reason, the tab that clips on to the actual arm was broken. How do I know this? I can see glue on the wiper blade housing where the hook is supposed to attach. Man, I've already filed a complaint with the BBB (Better Business Bureau), going to see what I can do through my insurance company. What else can I do to ream these guys?
