So today i add a skill to my belt. Disk brakes
i changed the trucks rotors and pads this morning. From start to finish it took me about 4 hours. including the 2nd trip back to advance once i found out my caliper bolts are Torx head
. But overall it went kinda smoothly. I put driver side rotor on, got it all in, moved to the passenger side, pulled the caliper, pulled the rotor, pulled the pads, open up the new rotor...and its some rotor that didnt belong in the box. it was unwraped unlike the first one, and was entirely different looking. At this point of course my truck is on jackstands, i have 1 side torn down, other side is done. so i call up advance and tell em they f***ed up, heres my address bring me a new one. Luckily advance has that kind of customer service because they didnt argue a bit. i gave em alittle info on wut they had messed up and he brought it right out str8 to my house.
Most important lesson learned today. Its a bad idea to pump the brakes with the Brake fluid resevoir cap off
. had hood popped, i pumped the breaks 1 time and i see brake fluid in this nice pattern spray everywhere.
