Imagine he would have to go to war or hunt for food. Good for him for at the very least trying.

Brilliant we’ve all been there. I hope your not paying per beep😂 and next time Ethon should be give no more than 3 tickets for help might make him think twice about asking for help 🤔

I feel you're pain Ethan. It gets so much better. The very first thing I did on my car was suspension and I sheared off a bolt my first day too.

@misolou fout lol right. I do love working on them though. Such a good feeling, when through your own hard work you achieve what you set out to do

I remember when I started working for my dad, Doing front breaks was my first job i believe, letting a first timer change springs idk bout that. If that spring slips you gonna learn.
Ethan definantly is doing well and no matter the chip they give him he's doing well on this so far
Edit : Why didn't he heat the surrounding area on the wheel bearing before trying to use the screwdriver?

I really felt for Ethan shearing that stud, especially when he asked about keeping on going. This is why you use a torque wrench.

As a professional tech who’s had apprentices, I really feel for Ethan. Just letting someone who’s not as experienced loose with a big old battery dagga is gonna go wrong.
I’ll volunteer to actually teach him some stuff.

I'd love to be able to work on my own car but this does put me off a bit. I've built a lot of computers & do a fair bit of DIY but getting the parts myself so I can choose the quality of the part and then paying to have it installed isn't a terrible way to go, right?

BMW.. for when you want to work hard. maximum effort for minimal results😀💪👍 feel free to give me a heart on this comment because i have a bmw x5 and do all my own work on it and feel the pain

Changing suspension springs is truly terrifying. If those suddenly go and you're in the way... good luck. Remember, those things can hold the weight of a car and only compress slightly. Imagine what amount of force they release when being fully compressed and then suddenly release all that force. I've seen them smash their way across an entire garage, breaking everything in their path.

Well done to all of you it must of been a ballache that especially for the guy who's just learning. Enjoyed this video! Keep them coming!

I felt the tension through my screen when he was compressing the springs, but that's because I've experienced a spring jumping loose when someone was compressing it.

Smashing body parts in the name of car or bike repair is standard. I change tyres dirt bike despite the inevitable knuckle thrashing 🤭 a stiff carcass administers.

We all know how it feels Ethan, when I lowered my Mustang I first only ordered springs, tried to replace just them, got them in and had to replace the struts too, got the struts back in and found out I also had to change the strut mounts and sway bars. I think I speak for all of us when I say good work and welcome to the at home mechanic’s Union.

No one knows true fear until you are compressing a spring and thinking all that's stopping this spring from punching a hole in your face is a couple of clamps
