this pisses me off !!!

Recommended Posts

Here is another reason I think we need more regulations and certifications for being a Mechanic.. A lady comes into my shop with a broken brake line on the right front of her car, she states that a few months ago she had one replaced at another shop for a lot more money and it was in the back of the car. So I decided to take a look and she showed me the receipt. 240.00 labor and 88.00 for parts. I charged her about 150.00 to run a new line from the right front to the M/C .. I was shocked with what I found, they had replaced about 3 inches of brake line at the right rear wheel, they had also used and illegal compression union to join that line to a rusted piece of line , and the connection was still leaking take a look at the photos below.
