I’m surprised you didnt spin the car around on its axles using 3/4 drive to twist a 7mm Allen key

 

Once a bodger........ 

Well that got you out from under your rock! ;) 

 

I couldn’t get a big enough hammer in there either!

Have you replaced your father-in-law’s breaker bar now?

How did you manage to break your father's breaker bar in the first place? 

I didn’t brake one, I broke 2 and a stiltson :shock: 

I changed the crank pully and it’s got the 17mm bolt in it and not the 4 separate torx things 

oh well....

I agree, when you know what your doing and got the correct equipment then maybe 30 min? 

When you've got the right tool for the job. :grin:

My brake pad change has turned into a week... I had unevan wear on rear left. I just presumed it was because they were a crappy no name make. After replacing with pagid, turns out that one of the caliper carrier sliding bolts had seized. 

 

The reason why it turned into a week's job is that I refused to pay £115 from Volkswagen for a carrier.... £33 from the internet was much more to my liking. (Made by TRW, who I believe makes them for VW anyway?) I dread to do the job tomorrow as I know the two huge bolts keeping them in can be a right pain...
