  1. Please can someone help?

    Thank you all for your advise and replies. I'm going to see how things are over the next couple of days and if it still looks like a problem a friend has recommended a mechanic who works by himself and is apparently very trustworthy. xx
  2. Thanks, I know it was over kill on the amount of posts but i was getting panicky!! Typical woman, I know xx
  3. Please can someone help?

    Hi Thanks for responding. i've just got back from the garage and as the warning lights were not on on the drive over, I told the guy i wasn't convinced it needed replacing. He just shrugged and said he could send the part back but it was my choice and there obviously was a fault. I tried to discuss the possibility that it could be the extreme weather conditions on the new brakes and he just shrugged again!! So I said I'd leave it and walked away. I'm certainly not handing over £120 to someone like that!! Sorry I realise I'm ranting as I type. I spoke to my Dad a little while ago and he is thinking maybe it just that the pads and disks etc have not bedded in fully yet and it should be ok when they do. Does that sound plausible??
  4. Hello I'm new on here but I'm really hoping someone can help with my query. I put my Ford Focus in for MOT last saturday and was told I needed front R/H brake caliper and both sets of disks and pads replaced. I had this done and then on Wednesday morning I had the traction control, ABS and hand brake lights illuminated on my dash. I took it back to the garage who ran a diagnostic check and said the front ABS sensor had gone and that it was nothing to do with the work they had done as it was no where near where they worked! I've booked it in for today at 4pm and I have since checked out the location of the sensor and understand it's on the front wheel and that to change my brakes they would have had to remove the wheels. Am I being really stupid or could they have affected the ABS sensor?? The warning lights weren't on last night but this morning they are back. Please can you help, as Idon't want to be a pathetic woman and get fobbed off and have to pay the extra £120 they want to replace it but I also don't want to go shouting the odds if I'm not fully aware of what I'm saying Thank you Clare

    Hi Rob I'm really not sure but as someone who is desperately hoping someone will reply to my post I thought I'd at least say hello. Clare
