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.
