JavaScript Treehouse Club: JavaScript Car Sounds Background Color, Margin, and Padding

Treehouse Club: JavaScript Challenge Task 3 of 3

In the 'a' element in links change the padding: 10px; }

I have copied and pasted it to look like this and still for 2 days i don't know what the error is. Why is this so simple and yet I still get the task wrong?

css/style.css
/* Background Color */
html {
  background:  #99E6FF;
}


/* Body */
body {
  margin: 0 auto;
  max-width: 800px;
}


/* Images */
img {
  width: 100%;
}

.car { 
  display:block;
  margin: 40px auto; }
  padding: 0;
}


/* Links */
a {
  background: transparent;
  border: 0;
  display: block;
  float: left;
  margin: 0;
  outline: 0;
  padding: 10px; }
  width: 33%; 
}

There's a stray closing brace after the "margin" line:

  margin: 40px auto; }

That causes the "padding" line below it to be ignored.
