Customer Question
Just had a repair...

Just had a repair on my JD 105 riding mower. The left pedal won't work, and that impacts the right pedal too. What's the fix?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

D105 bough two years ago at Lowes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on how hard it is to fix?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The work just done was to fix a wheel that collapsed under the axle.
