I road tested the Stilo as the customer complained of a rumbling noise, well there is a burst water main on our street and with minus 1 celsius not a great combination, so i had to drive through it to make any headway and when i accelerated i thought that the wheels were spinning away, but once i hit a dry patch i realised that it was the clutch slipping and the rumbling noise is the exhaust flexi downpipe is broken. So its now on a ramp with it gearbox out and having the full works.
New front discs and pads now fitted complete with the beautifully reconditioned brake calipers. All bled with fresh Dot 4 and handbrake adjusted. Road tested and already a massive improvement, they will only get better once we fit the new tyres and bed the brakes in.
