    Could be linkage or motor issue. If its either or both be prepared for expensive bill through VX.

    Mine meshed together while back and for a new motor, linkage, spare blade with VAT and labour cost over £300+

    If they are not parking correctly then its probably the motor. If you change the motor or the linkage then you don't need to do them together as they are completly interchangable. The linkage is about £80 and the motor is about the same.

    Takes about 30mins to change if you know what your doing.

    Slinky, sounds like you paid full dealer whack! Could have done it yourself for about half that as it sounds like you linkage went - and as I already said you can reuse your old motor. How do I know? because its on here and i have had to do it myself.
