I’m contemplating blowing the Land Rover up. Or burning it. Or cutting it into very small pieces. Yes, it’s still having a hissy fit.
I was taking the Wee ‘Un out to the school bus this morning when I looked over at the Defender and noticed something odd through the back right wheel.
After he’d gone, I took the wheel off and found one of the brake pads had partially dropped out—one of the retaining pins has broken so only one was holding the pad in place. (The pins were only two years old.)
I contemplated buying a fitting kit alone but decided, as the brake pads were half worn, I might as well replace them as well. Still, I’m not best pleased at having to put another £50 on the credit card to cover the cost of new pads, fitting kit and delivery (almost as much as the cost of the parts).
