The heartbreaking story of a soft rear brake that took me to the brink of madness and back.

Thanks as always to Abom for being a great sport:.

The best thing about being addicted to drinking brake fluid?

You can stop whenever you want.

Normally in a "how it's done" video I am screaming at the monitor: "JUST TELL US WHAT IT IS!" but in your case, I never want the video to end.

You’re not an idiot, This Old Tony ... you’re just tired ... and need a brake.

Sounds like when my brother's car wouldn't idle well. Spark plugs, spark plug wires, alternator, starter motor, nothing worked.

Then he bought a battery.

What doesn’t brake you, makes you stronger.

morale of the story: when you have spongy brakes replace all parts...

We call that “parts darts” in the trade. Customers come in, exclaiming they’ve tried everything.... everything but the simplest thing.. silly Old Tony.

I recently learned one of my colleagues also watches your videos. I want to thank you for what is likely to become the next inside joke, when I ask him if he checked his rotor.

"This video contains excessive talking."

Yes. That's what I'm here for This Old Tony, it's why I watch.

what this says to me is “go and buy a micrometer, quick, I need to measure stuff”

Why did you not send it to Abom, he can add thickness with his magic lathe and flame thrower sparkler thingy

change out the brake fluid with fabric softener, then they'll be soft and snuggly.

Ahhh! I thought I had it figured out with the brake line bulging or the brake lever arm being cracked or flexing. Great video!
