I did that one time. Was going through a divorce, wasn't sleeping much, and pretty much was distracted. Put everything together and backed it out of the shop. Pulled it right back in a did them right... No there were no drugs involved either.

Yup did that once also. Working in the dark and the rain. That's when I vowed to have a shop to pull my rigs into to work on.

Our engineer was helping his friend change the disc brake pads on his car.
At the parts store when they brought the new pads out his friend looked at
the new ones and said they were wrong. He said the new pads were way too thick.

If it fits, it must be ok.....

I've never seen that done, but I did see a good one on my neighbors pickup. He had an older chevy 2wd that still had tapered roller bearings in the front. A friend of his had worked on it for him. I don't remember exactly why he brought it to me.

Anyway, when I took it apart, the other fellow had put the outer bearing in backwards so it was facing the same way as the inner. The only thing keeping the front rotor on was the caliper wrapped around it. I suggested that neighbor might not want to have that fellow work on his stuff anymore.

I feel fortunate that I could look at that picture and recognize what was wrong! Some of the stuff you guys on here laugh and scoff at...I have no clue what's so funny.

My kind neighbor, Joe, taught me how to do my first brake job. I'll forever be grateful. I was newly married, just bought our house. He showed me the process and lent me the tools. Now I can be a better dad and save my family some money.

Aand share a laugh with ya'll!

Years ago I turned a set of rotors for a local shop around 6:30 in the evening. Right as I was closing at 8:00 the mechanic showed up and needed the rotors turned again because they were scored. I asked why. He wouldn't tell me. I told him we open at 7:00 unless he tells me. He finally admitted that in his haste to get the car out he had put the pads on backward. I turned his rotors again.He wasn't a bad guy, just proof stupid can sneak up on any of us.

Must have heard that racers prefer metallic pads.

That is one mistake I have not done but I have done plenty of others to make up for it.

Have only ever done just a few and I don't think what I worked on could be put in backwards.
