It happens in threes..... what's next?
In the process of doing a check over, on top of the water issue in the other thread I also found that my brake fluid resevoir had been leaking fluid, which has dripped onto the engine bay paintwork and stripped it!
So after closer inspection, I found it was 1 of the 2 seals going to the master brake cylinder.
$16.50(seals from Ford) + Fluid($10) + labour (~$50) from mechanic =$76.50
so I think....
$16.50 (seals from Ford) + do it myself.
BUT Ford don't have any which means no car for a day.
So I go to ABS Brakes in Ringwood....
$6.60 (the same goddamn seals) + Fluid $10 and half an hour of my time.
I can tell you it wasn't a tough choice.
