My neighbor and his son came knocking on my door this week asking if I could help them with a brake job on the son's truck. The son is 17 and just recently got his drivers license. Neither the son or the dad have much mechanical knowledge. They took the truck, a 2005 Toyota Tundra, to get new tires and the tire shop told them it needed front brakes. My neighbor asked how much they would charge for a brake job and the tire shop told them it would be $650. I had changed the brakes on one of my neighbor's other vehicles for him a few months ago so he knew to come to me for help. The son, who is a junior in high school, knows absolutely nothing at all about cars so while I did the brake job, I explained every thing I was doing to him to try to teach him. He did not even know how to break the lugs loose or put the wheel back onto the studs. I did the hard, more technical stuff, but I got the son to do some of the work. I thought it was a good teaching / learning opportunity for the kid.
