I made the unusual decison to let somebody else work on my car today so that I would have my weekend free to do family stuff and things around the house. I normally do everything myself but once drew the line at a DMF change the stealers told me I need but turns out i did not, useless t0ssers. I tend to steer clear of taking my cars to a mechanic as I never get it back how i left it, something always gets screwed up.
Today was one of those days. A mechanic who was recommended was just supposed to change my track rod ends and allign it all, change my Multi V belt tensioner, put on my braided brake hoses on the rear (fronts already done by me).
Now I picked my car up late this afternoon and i now have a list of problems:
1 - A scraping NSF caliper and a scored 2 week old 314mm disk
2 - Power steering will not work unless the engine is on, it used to work at ignition position two
3 - Outside air temp gauge no longer reading correct temp and mostly displaying an 'F'.
4 - Headlights go off leaving only sidelights when the engine is turned off despite the switch still being on full, turn engine back on and lights come back on.
5 - Windows autoclose no longer works when locking doors and holding lock button on remote
6 - steering now pulls to the right slighty, used to be perfectly alligned.
Now i will strip down the NSF brake tomorrow to see whats happening there and arrange to get my car its 2nd 4 wheel laser allignment of the year. But can you guys help me with the screwed up electrical bits, I guess he disconnected the battery for some ****** reason but cannot be sure.
Any ideas gratefully accepted..
