Seems a bit stingy considering the mechanics are there anyway.
It's the same with all the manufacturers. They want you to move up the range to get some desirable features but pay a lot more than those features cost. That said, Honda does include a lot on their standard models where other brands start adding a load of extras on the bill.

Doubtless maintaining the pins extends the working life, but for those of us who don't do our own work 12 years or so may be the life of the part.

It is just one of the long list of things that most dealers and garages never look at  :o  They probably see it as 'future work'

which is why they keep a biscuit tin with a selection in.

I rifled through the tin until I found the one that fitted and then ordered a replacement through the dealer.

Handy. How did you end up with a biscuit tin full of locking wheel nut keys??

I think ColinS means the garage had a biscuit tin full of wheelnut keys...

I had just had a similar problem on my 2008 Mk1 my local independent charged 70 for one caliper (new) + 60 for fitting and freeing up the other side. Presumably the slide pins Culzean mentioned. Come the MOT a couple of months later they had to replace the other caliper, 100 Inc labour. Which I think is very fair. Doubtless maintaining the pins extends the working life, but for those of us who don't do our own work 12 years or so may be the life of the part.

As our drive is a on a bit of a slope, I've decided to park it the other way round. The nose is now higher. Only time will tell if it makes a difference.

If its the only place water gets where its not supposed to be, its a result. I've owned a few leaky cars in the past and they're no fun.

I have no idea what the Polish ones were like, but FIAT made mine, so it was cr@p. I had it from its first MOT until it was eight years old. I then passed it on to my sister-in-law who ran it for three years before scrapping it. The interesting thing was some young tearaways bought it for spares but instead raced around in it, uninsured and with no MOT, until they crashed it into some poor chap's car, parked outside his house. They then scarpered but were eventually traced and charged. Probably got a slap on the wrist. How we know the final part of the story is the police went to speak to my sister-in-law as the last registered keeper.

Tragic end to the poor old Fiat. It lasted well though. 11 yrs and still going.
