Mazda Repair, Take 2

Thursday I posted on TruckinDaddy about some work I was starting on The Boss Lady's car. I picked up the parts this afternoon and got to work. Then a miracle happened. No, the car did not heal itself. It still needs a clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder.

The miracle went like this. I gave up an hour after I started. BEFORE I broke anything.

Turns out the dash needs to come out to remove the master cylinder. And I am not up to that challenge. I learned my lesson on her last car. The one time I tore into the dash on the black Escort, I never could get everything back in place correctly.

So the car is sitting at the repair shop over the weekend. They got most of the work done this afternoon, but since I did not take it to them until 4:15, I did not really expect them to finish before 6 p.m.

Guess it will be a good weekend to cruise the truck around a little.
