    Default Inlet manifold and drop links

    My car has been in the dealers since yesterday having a new inlet manifold... I got a call lunch yesterday because they had damaged some vacuum box/pump or something and that I wouldnt get the car back till today. Well I rang a few moments ago and was told it would be another hour or so as they were just refitting the drop links. I thought nothing more of it... but I'm now wondering what the drop links have to do with changing the intake manifold..??

    If your car is still under warranty they may have noticed the the drop links were worn and decided to change them. If its not under warranty ask them who authorised the replacement of the drop links and more importantly who is going to pay for them LOL.

    If you haven't authorised work then you are not liable to pay for it. They should of asked you, so make sure they are aware of this.

    Yeah the work is under warranty... but dealers fixing stuff off their own back sorta goes against the grain in my book.. especially for an Evans Halshaw dealership...lol

    If the warranty is paying for it, they won't care they will just do the work and bill the warranty company or if it's Vauxhall then they'll bill Vauxhall.

    Ok... seems that as well as replacing the inlet manifold, EGR & Boost sensor they also did some work on the drop links and track rod ends which meant the car also had its tracking done... all under warranty... Theres now plenty of pull under 2k and I can hear the turbo whistling at 1.5k.. fuel economy has also increased by 8-10 mpg just on the 50 mile return journey... all in all a good result. They also advised the DMF was just starting to rattle but said they wouldnt do it under warranty until it got alot worse... I also got that in writing so I have a new DMF in the bank for later....
