  1. There is no requirement for the system to be used to prevent leakage. So, lack of use shouldn't be an issue.
  2. Why should gas be a consumable? If it has leaked, the system is faulty.
  3. If it's a new car and the air con doesn't work, I can't see how they can charge you anything.
  4. IMHO they are at the ham, keep pushing and resist any form of payment is what I would do.
  5. I repeat; Hi Kev, Welcome to the forum. You should start a new thread with your problem and give as much information as you can.

    Breaks Grinding

    Given that the gap between the pad and the disc is measured in thousands of inch, no car is prone to getting stones stuck in there. As the size of the brakes are matched to the size of the car, it won't be anything to do with the size either. Best to have them inspected by someone who knows what they are doing.
  8. As there is more than one pipe, a picture of the leaking pipe(s) would be helpful.
  9. The 2.2 had different hubs to the other models therefore, the bearing will also be different.
  10. It's been caused by someone cross threading it at the start, trying to turn it in, then realising it wouldn't go in and having to take it out again. It will probably clean up good enough but best to replace it. Coppaslip is not grease, it's an anti-sieze compound. As there is nothing to sieze on the back of a pad, it's not advisable to put it there as there is nothing to be gained.
  11. You don't even need brake cleaning spray. I've never used it, ever.
  12. Why would you want to lubricate brakes? Do you ever see lubricant on new car brakes? Only the slide pins need lube.
  13. I recommend taking it all apart, cleaning everything with a wire brush and putting it all back together. There's no need to sand the pads, or have the discs reground if they aren't worn. If the job is done properly, there won't be any need for any compounds either.
  14. It looks like this is the part number 04952-09020 £8.50 a side on e-Bay.
  15. I was giving my front brakes a service today,(same as yours) here are some of the pictures I took. It's three years already since I fitted the pads and discs, time flies.
  16. Just keep cleaning it up. Sliding it in and out should eventually clear it out. When you feel it is free enough, reassemble it with the proper grease and it should be ok.
  17. The rubber stays on the pin. Make sure you put in back in the hole it came out of which is the bottom slider.
