If anyone writes anything out like this, it would go in the DIY section, therefore no need for a new section.

i have a slight problem with this list and in the past have had stick for it but i dont care,
the list above is sort of ok except for a few points and deffinately number 1 , brakes if you have to ask about them you should not be fiddling with them,
do you wire your own house ..no..
do you service your own gas supply and boiler..no..
why is it you feel you have the right to mess about with your brakes and put everyone else, including your self at risk to save a little money ,
if you want to change your oil go for it , its your engine
change a wheel , well if you cant undo and do up 4-5 wheel studs put your wheel brace back in the boot,
safety , i am all for that good stuff,
mot time checks, tyres should be checked weekly not annually , wipers if you cant see change them, bulbs again weekly checks and before anyone says i cant check my brake lights reverse against a shop window (not through it)the reflection is very usefull
sorry if this came across all sh#tty it was not meant to i feel strongly about it having seen one to many novice trying to fix there own braking system :eek:
i have also put some pics up of people who only check there tyres once a year , or should i say let the mot station do that for them .

i am not saying dont have a section on this but if you really have no understanding of important items please dont attempt it.
