Went to replace brakes - discs & pads - only to find the passenger rear caliper is totally seized

I swear, any job you think is going to be straight forward, even down to loosening a few simple screws, it never f ing is!
I replaced my antenna a few weeks back, easy enough job. That was until removing the plastic. One screw fell out, no thread, the other was stuck in spinning.
I got around that, but then replacing all the trim/plastic after I finished was an absolute nightmare. For the life of me, I still can't get it to sit tight like it was before. It was any icy day, I was sat in the boot & the swear words poured out of my mouth. 😡
Good luck m8, I feel your pain.

Best thing about it is that it hasn't failed because of anything I've done.

When the headlight bolt snapped I didn't know if I'd bent the panel drilling it out, that and the fact the re-tapped hole was slightly off centre. How on earth do you align headlamps anyway? Turns out I didn't have to worry - about that, or the fact my front number plate is a post-Brexit UK plate and the rear one an EU GB plate. Should be an instant MoT fail that - horrifying lack of attention to detail.

With you on the number plates there mate.
Ive been running my daily motor for 9 months with a blue EU one on the back and a plain one on the front. Don’t know how I’ve slept at night. Worse thing is I’ve had two brand new matching ones in the shed since a week after I got the car and I just haven’t put them on yet. :eek:
