A first for me!

12 posts in this topic

I find myself to be pretty handy and mechanical but have never changed my brakes before. Well today I did it. I was having the hardest time getting the bolts on the caliper to loosen up so I used my Jack to push on my rachet and that did it. I am very proud of myself and wanted to share it with the ladies and others that hang around the women forum. I was hoping to get the oil changed too but I ran out of time and energy, that is next weekends project. I am so happy that I now have a garage so that I can do this, the apartment rules say that I cant but I don't always follow the rules.

Hope

Way to go Hope!! gringrin I did brakes many many times. My dad was a rural mail carrier, so I helped him fix his cars. It's a good feeling when it works out right.

That's awesome, Hope! I am a farm wife, so I get in on all kinds of fixing. There is a lot of satisfaction in saying "I fixed it on my own"! Good for you!

Hey, I'm up in Brooklyn Park as well. Truck needs rear brakes and rotors. I can drop it off for you to work on at any time;)

Good to see you did this job yourself, saved some money to spend on more fishing equipement, and now you know you can tackle this job yourself in the future.
