The last time I drove my Elise I heard a funny "clunk" in the back when applying the brakes. "Well THAT'S not good!" I thought to myself. I put the car up on ramps, removed the undertray and diffuser and poked around.

The large bolt that secures the Brembo brake caliper to the hub was *GONE* :eek: :facepalm :panic:

I overhauled my brakes this summer and upgraded to stainless steel brake lines. Obviously I forgot to properly torque the bolts when I put everything back together. I checked the opposite bolt and it was only finger tight.

Careful, careful, careful everyone! :(

P.S. EliseParts had replacement bolts to me from England in 3 business days (ordered them Monday, received them today). I LOVE those guys!! :up:
