    When I was doing my C & G, my tutor used to tell the story of tasking the Youth Training Scheme bods to go and change the brake shoes on the back of one of the collection of clapped out bangers in the workshop.
    20 minutes later they'd saunter back in - job done.
    Except a quick rummage through the workshop bin would unearth all the return springs and hold down cups that were apparently either too difficult to replace or they couldn't work out where they went :drive2:

    He were only famous after he snuffed it, I think. Bit extreme in my opinion...

    Trouble is, we tend to use the plastic area under the windscreen as a bolt / tool holder (come on, who doesn't?). Every time I come to put something back together, I then realise the (whatever YTS kids are called now) have left a load of bolts in there from whatever they were doing. So I can't figure which are mine/theirs and if I put everything back because there's still a load of bolts left.

    Before you start and your using the scuttle panel for your nuts and bolts plus tools
    Check to see if it’s empty if not move what’s there and you know what’s yours and if you are unlucky and left anything over

    I had a motor home come into work today that I did a clutch and gearbox + service and a mot the gearbox repair specialist left a ball baring in the box and it tried to worked it’s way back out in the diff housing and split the casing and leaked oil out so had to do the job again pain in the butt
    My boss called me over as he was doing the mot and said to me look at this there is a pair off mole grips on the clutch cable opps that’s where they went to

    :roflmao:. I'll try and remember to move all the bits first. I also always forget to loosen the wheel nuts before I put the car up in the air. So I have to bring it back down again! Every time!!

    I did service + new callipers, pads, discs, front dampers, springs and top mounts. Put it all together, wheels back on. I use the trick of foam inserts in my tool trays, so I knew one of my hose clamps was missing... I went round taking each of the wheels off again. Checked all round the suspension, top mounts, engine bay. Basically stripped the whole thing down again. Then just thought meh... one of those things. Sat down and jumped back up, it was in my back pocket the whole time.

    It was at the stage I hope everyone starts out at where you believe cars are precision machines that require care, precision and a gentle touch. So it took :censored: ages. Now I know better, I reach for the air gun and copper hammer!! I actually tried to knock the suspension out with a rubber hammer for about 15 minutes.

    Over a period of about 10 years I've gained a Mac pick tool and 2 Snap-On sockets left in the scuttle of my cars that have gone in for main dealer service........so that's where all the 10mm's go :)

    Was it pulled out of a ditch? Official report says clutch cable failed unexpectedly.
