Well today i got my golf back chuffed to bits[<:eek:)] 12 month mot and only needed a little work had the axle bushes done and rear spring snapped (that must because the bushes wernt absorbing the energy so the spring took it instead[:(]). advice to everyone when you find out your bushes are on there way out get them changed straight away. anyways i also had a leaking caliper which at first we thought the brake lines had perished but it just needed a new washer. now however my pedal isnt very firm the bloke bled the calipers but not the master cylinder so tomorrow im going to do it. i bled my brakes about two years ago and didnt enjoy it one bit what a bitch they are to do on the mk4 golf.
