Front disk brake stubborn bracket bolts
Posted 04 September 2009 - 06:38 AM
What should have been a do-it-myself front pads and rotors replacement turned into a trip to the shop to torch heat and remove the corrosion welded pad bracket bolts...one of which I had sheared off with a breaker bar. I bought 4 new bracket bolts (pn# 901130011) that come with lock washers from Cityside Subaru for $18.40, then had an inde shop remove the old and install the new. My mechanic went easy on me this time, only charging one hour of labor $80 for the work. He also installed the new pads & rotors (which I supplied from Advance Auto $94) while he was in there. So be warned, up here in the rust belt, those bracket bolts might not spin out very easily...you might have to apply some heat! And people--this means YOU Subaru--there is this crazy little thing called ANTI-SEIZE! Use it, Know it, Live it.
