    Default just when i thought the day was getting bad.. it goes worse :(

    well im properly pied off..

    going to work this morning and i pick up my usual lads. gets half way to work and i started to hear something rubbing on the brakes.
    gets to work then i looked and seen the pads where pretty low. has ive got a important course to do tomorrow with the boss's and needed to drive there. i decided to book myself half a days holiday to get new discs and pads.
    finished work at 12pm. then drives to the dealers to get pads and discs.
    gets home about 1pm..
    started taking the wheels off about 1.30pm
    gets the first wheel off (rears btw) and takes off the caliper. puts new disc and new pads, things where getting good.
    starts the 2nd wheel. and i noticed the brake caliper had siezed up. and there was no way of undoing it. its 3pm and i rang the dealers up... and they had no calipers in at this depo. so had to wait till 4pm till they got one.
    picked it up after 4pm. then when't home and started to fit it.
    5pm i finished putting disc and pads on.
    LAST PART!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    needed to bleed the brakes... and the DAMN nipple wouldnt tighten as the caliper was threaded. so the nipple bolt would not tighten... and yes.. the ****** garage was closed...

    the main thing that p!ss4d me off was the damn caliper was faulty. so the car is now on bricks till my m8 picks the new caliper up tomorrow.

    its just the fact i gotta go on this course tomorrow. so i cant fix till i get home
