I'm an idiot

years ago, about 5, i accidently smelt a asbestos break pad, which was brand new... are they really that bad?

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

Re: I'm an idiot

how did you accidentally smell it? were you just sniffing the tyre...moved onto the rotor...then the calipers and accidentally got a whiff of the pad? lol

I reckon she be right, any abnormal symptoms associated with asbestos yet?

Re: I'm an idiot

I think you will be ok, isn't it only when asbestos is broken up and damaged - like in a demolition job that it can cause problems.

Re: I'm an idiot

You mean it's serious? The 5 years ago bit put me off.

As long as the pad wasn't broken up you'll be fine.

Re: I'm an idiot

Nah youll be alright Asbestos is dangerous but really only if there is its dust flying around and even then it needs to be a fair bit and can cause cancer later in life, but you have nothing to worry about.
