Yeti Rear Bump Stops Replacement

rotten skoda bump stops
Last week my Yeti was at the garage having new discs and pads.
I really don't know why I didn't get these rotten bump stops done at the same time

I never noticed them, I suppose until my yeti was in the air with its wheels off. 
As usual when it comes to most parts, I have opted to buy the bump stops myself and prevent my mechanic from adding any mark-up. 
I order and they arrive fast.

It’s 8:04 am when I pull up outside the mechanic's workshop for the second time in a week.
And just like last week, he’s waiting for me. Raring to go it seems (he doesn't want his face shown).
Up she goes again…

My STK (MOT test) is due in two months and this would definitely have caused my Yeti to fail 😟

should bump stops be replaced?

The 9 am news comes blaring out of the workshop radio and the mechanic lowers my Yeti onto the ground

It’s all done.

Thanks for visiting.
If you need bump stops for your Yeti they are available here on Amazon

Just a heads up: many of my posts contain affiliate links of products I have bought for my Yeti.
If you buy something from one of these links, you will not pay a penny more.
I will get a small commission, although not every time.
The extra pennies help me to pay the annual cost of the domain name.
I thank you for your support.
