picked the car up today

the breaks seemed to get really hot on the way home as could smell them and they were really warm

he said that the pad were done resent and there are lots of meat on them but the disks are like a record think for the cost of them going to swap them out

Sounds like sticky calipers. I had that a couple of years ago and have now stripped both calipers and the wheel cylinders, replacing one of the latter.

I'm now a believer in regular brake fluid replacement, which I never used to bother with.

Looking good! Iv just bought a new car aswell.

Does sound like sticking calipers, had it twice before. Try taking the pads out and spray some wd40 on the pistons. Will it press back in with a bar or large screwdriver? Tho you'll probably need a recon caliper. For the ka they were cheap at europarts.

Not looking good for the coupe the gearbox sump is knackered loosing oil noticed after bad gear change so checked the level

Wondering if it was cooking transmission not brakes

Have a new sump going to try it with fresh oil but thinking the damage is done

Glad your up and running again! Sorting the bodywork is always a hard not to do but some spray cans and a mop can have it looking good for a very small price. I'm after a boot in the same colour for my astra. But not really important.
