Another day, another repair. This time more maintenance than anything else; front brakes. Been awhile since I had last done them and they were due. Pads were down to a thickness that was the same as maybe 5 sheets of paper? Rotors were still in pretty ok shape and I probably could have turned them to get another set of pads on them, but it’s not that much more expensive to replace than to turn.
As per my usual, EBC Greens went on. I also stuck with the Centric rotors since I’m not doing anything more punishing then commuting to work every day. I’m really impressed with the wear on the last set too, so I’m confident this set will perform just as well.
And, for the first time since I’m too embarrassed to admit, I had the fluid swapped. I forgot what a huge difference that makes. It’s also the reason why I had my brakes done instead of doing them myself. I don’t have the tools and equipment to do a fluid swap and it’s cheaper for me to have it done, and way less frustrating too.
And with that, the list of major repairs that Roxy needs is now complete! Moving on to the should have list which consists of some of the following.
- Oil pan gasket
- Valve cover gasket
- Power steering hoses
- Sunroof motor
- Passenger side door lock
So, now Roxy sits are about 98%. I’m more than pleased with that.
