T eeg corsa has just failed its MOT on:-

1. NSF brake pads low (ive got a pair of used replacements)

2. Hand brake adjustment- no reserve

can anyone sort this asap, as its been sold on Sat.

No responsible garage would fit used brake pads nor should you think of doing so if you are selling to someone

Pads should be fitted in axle sets NOT pairs, hence when buying them new there are 4 in the box.....

Aren't you missing the point...He is suggesting putting used pads from another car onto his car so that he can get it passed on the MOT having already accepted a deal to sell his car providing it is MOTd
Would you be happy if were the the buyer and you were made aware of this

That is why he is asking about pads which have been used on another car

If the pads pass the MOT it dont matter if he got them off Ebay, his Aunt Fanny or his neighbours daughters silver cross pram.

If they pass, they pass; what more can the buyer ask?

the cost of a cheaper end set of pads, around £10 why would you use second hand ?

love this thread.

:-) :-) :-)

the pads where bought for a newer car but didnt fit. so besides the rears being covered in copper grease. There as new.


on another point

Has anyone ever fitted part worn tyres....

There is a tyre dealer in Birkenhead who sells tyres with side wall repairs...... not my idea of safety.
