ill start off. it was my friends awd jeep and we were doing a cv joint replacement.
Day 1. he called me up at his girl friends house around noon asking if i wanted to help. get there around 4 i had stuff to do(my headliner).i said yes (mistake #1). i get there take tire off and see a huge bolt. turns out 36 mm big (who needs one of them). go to napa to buy one and they dont have one. so we go back and try a monkey wrench that failed. started calling everyone we know to see if they have one. finally after 2 hours of phone calls we find one (for a guys oil filter on his bmw). take get the socket take off the bolt and its time to go to a party
Day2. after staying up till 4 am and having a hang over the first thing we do is remove the brakes (not thinking that his girlfriend would step on them 40 mins later(mistake #2 comes to play later)) then we have to remove to remove 3 bolts 2 of them come off with little trouble. the third one decided to snap
we called it a day right then in there.
Day 3. start off by going to home depot to buy a decent size drill bit. after 30 mins of drilling we get the bolt out. and start pulling on the part (not sure of exact name) that has the wheel studs not coming off. tried chiseling absolutely wouldn't budge. called it another night
Day 4. i brought my air chisel and it comes off basically with no trouble. pull old cv joint out no problem put new one in no problem. then time to put the 3 screws back on (with a new one that has a bolt on the end) go to put brakes on but o yea she pressed them in
dont have c-clamps so call it a day
day 5. today probably the worst day yet. got the brakes apart put them together, but on tire. were good to go right
