i had a look at my weights on the rims, they have clear marks that the caliper is touching them.

anyway complained quite a bit and they will take it back and correct it they say. however i immagine they will just bleed the system and use a grinder on the calipers to keep them free of the weights.

i should never have gone into that garage.
DO NOT let them attack your calipers with a grinder. If the old calipers cleared the wheel weights on your car then the new calipers WILL. Something is serious wrong and could be potentionaly disasterous
