And when the axle slid out, it caused the rotor to shift, which cut the anchor
bracket.. Caliper piston over extended and dropped the inner pad

Wish I was getting paid more than $27 for this job :(
 
So much for that theory going around the forums that having no circlip is fine, eh?! (or did it pop out anyways?!)

What? Thats not a Mark. They are fine without the clips.

Whatever that is it has a solid axle. Looks like the rear seiezed and twisted the axle shaft in two.
 
It's out of a 6-Shooter '01 Stang...you know..the woman car! The fluid was blacker than Jamies car...lol

And WTF Bill...9500+ posts...
 
ah, yes, true. I didn't think that out. If ours slid out a lil it'd be fine anyways for the most part due to the joints in the shaft, d'oh ;) lol... Thanks for the correction :)
I did my grandmothers Merc once before I got it and it was a super thick sludge of goo inside, no a drop close to liquid form! I don't know how it didn't make a noise!

Ours won't slide out ANY...many due to that tiny hole in the hub bearing it would have to fit through...rofl
 
Fluid usually lets me know that it needs to be changed by making an appearance on the wrong side of the gasket/seal.
 
Medium...with that frame of thought, my car has 171K..no oil leaks..so until it leaks I don't need to change it?
