Re: Rear brake pad replacement problem Help

Auto handbrakes are to "Dumb" down driving....You now don't have to give any thought to a hill start...the car does it for you.

As far as I'm concerned people will only become good compenent drivers if they have a mechanical empathy, if they know what they are actualy doing when they press the brake or let the clutch out.

Modern cars are slowly removing the driving experience from driving.

Now I'm not saying we all need to drive around in Morris Oxfords, but the truth of the matter is I honestly don't think a driver of today that has only ever driven new cars from the last few years could drive one.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
