Vette(s): 1980 L-48 still in the middle of a frame-off.
So the right rear caliper decides to freeze up on my Mazda6 wagon. Since it has 140k mi I will do both sides. 2 calipers @ 85ea, 2 rotors @ 24ea, and pads @32.
For the life of me I could not get the old rotors off. I beat them, sprayed them, and heated them cherry red...no go. I had to order 2 new axel hubs @ 110ea.
Put everything back together, it looks sooo shiney. Bleed brakes multiple times....no good. Now I am ordering a new master cylinder. 94.00. Had another car do this to me too. Waiting on m/c.
At the same time my water heater let go while I was not home. Grrrr not now!! 986.00 its fixed but water went everywhere. Looked at old heater and found a small leak in the back of it also besides the big one.
Seems to have been dripping for quite some time. I have to replace 1/3 of the flooring and 1/2 the wall panels due to moisture and mold.
All I want is a repair free Christmas.
Corvettes and women are the same...You want to make love to them but they keep breaking down.

I feels yer pain, my man! Water heater explosions ain't no fun attall!! On the rotors...front or rear? Did you happen to notice a small, Phillips head screw in them anywhere around the hub area? Most have a fastener of some sort to keep them attached to the hub from the factory.....just throwing that out there....little late now, but it might help in the future.
