My shop didn't either. They texted me that I needed 2 new calipers. I turned my work truck around, went to the Fastener store, bought a helicoil kit and dropped it off right in the mechanics hands within about 30mins, haha. I said, just charge me the little extra labor it needs and get it done... lol.

Heilicoil is extremely easy. removing the bolt depend, especially in a timely manner.
Then there's the brakes and liability thing. Still we hear of shop doing it quite often.

Removing the bolt can be difficult depending on how it broke. Sometimes a drill press may be
needed to get it out without damaging the caliper itself. Helicoil/Time-sert part is do able provided the caliper isn't destroyed while extracting the bolt.



The liability part is probably why Prime didnt offer to do this.

And ugh...
Last night while driving home suddenly had an overwhelming smell of fuel. And I mean seriously overwhelming to the point of almost passing out and throwing up.

However it was a heck of a storm so did my best to look for a problem but no luck. Thought maybe the pump attendant coated my car as I just filled up, maybe.

Check this morning, didn’t see. Anything odd. Smell came back and literally gushed out a quarter of a tank just driving down the block...

Check fue lines with car idling. Gasoline dries up fairly quickly so it's better if you can check it while there's pressure in the lines.
