Do you need to remove the wheel to do a brake flush?? I took my Chevelle to Merchant's to flush the brakes. I pick it up, take it back to work, pleased with the fact that the brakes are nice and firm. On the way home from work, I hear knocking (wobbling) from the front driver's side wheel. I pull over about a mile from home, and notice that the lock on my wheel is loose. CRAP. I shake the wheel and it feels firm so I pray and try to get home. As I'm turning the corner on my street, WHAM. The car falls to the ground and my front driver's side wheel goes rolling up the street!!!! Car is all smashed up. I call Merchants right there from the road and they say they didn't remove the wheel to do the flush. I'm taking it home from the shop from doing a brake flush, and the wheel comes off- but they had nothing to do with it?? It's my word against thiers. WTF can I do!!!??? The wheel was on there before. Why would it come off on the way home. I drove it down there. Drove it to McDonalds. Drove it to work. But when I drive it home, the wheel comes off. I am PISSED.
