Guy shakes his head and walks away,, ( cheapskates in Stoke)..
So his father -in- law decides help him, between them, they snap the banjo pin, that holds the flexi to the calliper,, 8 Main agent part only,
4 litres of brake fluid.... still no brakes.
Comes again, how much bleed the brake system, can not give a price.
But given the go ahead,,.
Go down, bleed the drivers side first, ( not new calliper side, as they had had a go here at bleeding also
Removed air, go to passengers side, put my hand up to undo the bleed nipple, no bleed nipple at the top..
Only fitted the calliper on the wrong side of the car,.
But had to take the original back, as service exchange..
So now I have to remove the wheel , and bleed the calliper off the carrier ...
Would have loved to have been there when son - in - law, turned up..

so nice fun filled hour this afternoon, in that hot sun..

Still cost him his " 20 "
Plus all the messing about for nearly 2 weeks
