As we prepare for our long trip from Portsmouth and around Wales certain things have to be done to ensure we are safe on our travels. Tyres, well the ones on the Mini are currently on deaths doors after two years of hard driving. The ones on the car were purchased via eBay, so fair to say they were ‘cheap’. Since they were fitted the handling has not been as great, and since the brakes were changed there has been a vibration throughout the car, and I now think thats down to the shoes she has been wearing. That remains to be seen, hopefully tomorrow when all the work is complete.
Since the brakes were changed there has been a really annoying tapping sound, we feel the pads may be lose? Anyway, the garage is investigating, I really couldn’t stand the sound of a drummer in the car for well over 500 miles of driving.
I’ll let you know how she is once I get her back, have a great day 🙂
