Ms. Marie's Civic needed some TLC on the front brakes and she is bound and determined to do it on her own. She informed me she watched some YouTube videos and was now equipped with the knowledge to carry out the task on her own.

    I still teach all sorts of people how to service their car and if we find something wrong, how to fix it – over the years have taught about 400 – 450 people. Most of them have never taken a wheel off their car in their life. Some don't know what a Philips screwdriver is. But remember, at one stage (maybe many, many years ago) we all didn't either – we have have to start from somewhere. Young Marie is doing fine but suggest a few things – torque wrenches are precisely calibrated instruments – mine collectively have their own separate drawer. I warn people here using them that if they drop mine, they now own it – they buy me another identical model – no ifs, buts or maybes. As Eric said, the unit Marie used is $500. Another suggestion is Marie wears safety squints, as you call them. Bits breaking off, or even a stray squirt of brakekleen in the eye tends to spoil your day. Worse you may have to visit a hospital. Worse still is when a chip of steel flies off and permanently damages an eye. Also have seen a close up photo when someone had compressed air bounce back off a crevice and returning air popped eye out. Photo showed eyeball in the person's hand (close to their head) with optic nerve still connected – wasn't pretty. Another issue is using wire wheel without specs. Saw a closeup photo (from 4" away) many years ago of an eye and upon close examination saw a piece of wire poking out from the iris – wire wheel had let one of the wires go – into the eye. So please, please wear safety specs all the time while you are in the workshop. Retired 70 yr old qualified mechanic in Land Down Under. PS. Eric, you run a good workshop, have a great attitude and have a good channel. Mrs O is good – she keeps you in line, but you two have good chemistry together. For all of you, keep it up.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Poland says:

    i love on how you teach others even the ladies and young men on how to work on thier cars. i wish there where more people that would show younger people on how to work on thier cars more. Great job Ms. Marie on the brake job. GREAT job teaching her and showing her the right things to do.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars trucker 101 says:

    I enjoy the fact that she wants to learn how to do her own maintenance.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars starving artist says:

    She faster than I am at this, no joking !

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mauro Juan says:

    you are awesome based on the simple fact you let her toy with that torque wrench like that… lol

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Hettiger says:

    Ms.Marie is a cutie

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michal M says:

    She is such a sweet heart!!!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeff porter says:

    Great job. At least she did go “click” so not been watching the Rainman….

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John White says:

    You make me proud of you to help young mechanics to learn how to do.
    I love all you do and you are a Blessing.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Dawicki says:

    Your character is what makes me watch your videos,I'm not a car guy at all. You my friend are an example of what people be. May your God bless you with all of the joy and happiness you bestow on others.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Tucker says:

    That was the best one yet, the smile of achievement on her face at the end says it all. well done for giving her the confidence to be able to do it.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Hall says:

    Lucky girl, to be trained by the master!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A M says:

    Nice 👍

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thepaperboy says:

    Love it, so many valuable lesson's there with wonderful guidance from Eric O. Her enthusiasm and gain in confidence is priceless.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul DiGiorgio says:

    Great video good job teaching eric and great job learning marie I have a 8 yr old granddaughter that I adopted and when I work on my truck she has her nose right in there trying to learn so I teach her a lot if kids these days don't want to do anything but play video games all day nice when they want to learn

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Jones says:

    She have safety specs on with the grinder?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Blair says:

    Marie is so fortunate to have a great instructor and wanting to learn the repairs. Great job Marie and Eric.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LAWRENCE REDDICK says:

    This is awesome!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JAC shop says:

    Good job kids grow so fast .your a great teacher Dad

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Emanuelsson says:

    Marie has wonderful character.

    Nice work 😉

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Hettiger says:

    Great job and very outgoing.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    Eric O's chest got bigger with admiration…..good job Dad. It's possible though Mom may be prouder.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars horrovac says:

    The joy she shows at discovering and working it out made me smile throughout the video. Every young dame should be availed the opportunity to fix her own stuff. Don't bring them up telling them they can't do this or can't do that or that something is too heavy for them or that it's not appropriate… Magnificent job, Marie!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Smith says:

    Is this porn or am I just sick? The latter I think.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jason woodward says:

    marie is great fun to watch, might be after your job thought. lol

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tom TKE says:

    clearly, she, too, gets great satisfaction from twirling wrenches… nothing wrong with that!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars French20cent says:

    That's just wholesome, keep up the good work !

    Also 55000 miles on a set of pads is impressive

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Hart says:

    Its so nice to see young girls take an active interest in auto mechanics. She will never be cheated on her repair bills for her car, it is also grand that you as the owner of SMA take the time to instruct the young person.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Knorr says:

    Disk brakes are simple. Drum brakes get a bit more complicated. I was an ase certified master tech.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leslie Q says:

    I only use 1.5X on your videos.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John White says:

    This is so cool to watch and better than tv.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Brosius says:

    GREAT JOB!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Deibama says:

    Aggravating your daughter? This may come back to haunt you when you're old.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roy White says:

    Great job Marie.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rinker says:

    eric can you watch the kids.
    OK this is an impact gun

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frankish says:

    I grew up on "Rust Island".. Namely the UK. Now I live in "No salt" Oregon.. OMG what a difference. I scrapped my 20 year old Dodge Neon last year.. Not a spot of rust anywhere on that car! Watching this brings back painful memories..:)

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Fisher says:

    Teach her right so you can take a break and she can fix your car

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Burgess says:

    She did real well for the first time.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Graeme says:

    Only just watched this. What an amazing young lady, great personality, she will go far, you must be proud.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron's Easy Fix # Just Do it says:

    She still owes you money for the lift and use of shop time. LOL I would hit her for 100 dollars 💵🤣and then next time she will have to pay for the job and stay clean. 🤣

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Scott says:

    Your a good teacher Eric . Teaching Marie on her brakes

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Hill says:

    this is like watching my daughter she has exactly the same car we did removing a shim from air conditioner clutch through wheel well

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hobby Organist says:

    If Marie can do it, I can do it! so I bought the genuine parts I wanted instead of going to NAPA, especially for the rotors which in the past warped quickly- made in China, and the parts come to-morrow for the front brakes- one rotor has scoring which suggests someone just replaced the pads on a scored rotor as the pad had raised scoring in that location.
    One wheel is off, caliper came off easy enough.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Bullock says:

    She is Her fathers daughter. What a pair? What a show? It was more entertaining than instructional.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hobby Organist says:

    You're going to have her rebuilding her transmission and replacing main and rod bearings before long!
