    Angry Just my luck

    Well, the car has been back on the road for 1 week and is yet again broke! im not having much luck at the moment This time i have broke my splitter in two then 2 days later the bleed nipple on the rear o/s caliper gave up and is now ****ing fluid all over the place! Im getting really fed up with all this fixing then something else breaks.

    I have repaired the splitter and readying it for painting this weekend but anybody know if i can repair the caliper or is it a new one for me?

    Thanks

    If its just the bleed nipple that has snapped off, I would try remove the rest of it from the caliper and take the pieces to any parts shop and they normally sell then for less than a pound each. I have done this on a car previous, i dont know of any reason why you shouldnt be able to on yours
