    Default Stealers?You have to Larf!

    Stealers came this morning and collected the car for the Oxy recall and new radio and wiring harness,Oh and boot re-alignment... My car is 15 months old

    Anyway i got on with the gardening, and was told to expect the car back for 5pm. (Arrived on time too!!) Not bad service me thinks.

    The funny bit was when they phoned at 4.30 just prior to delivery,.....
    Mr Ballinger?
    It's E**ns H*lsh*w... The Vauxhall Stealers...
    Me thinks Oh Gawd... here we go.
    Mr Ballinger you removed the fuse to stop the radio coming on..
    Yes thats right.
    Yeah? Ok well where is the fuse please?
    It's by the handbrake in the extractor...the bright red thing..
    Oh yes i see it now..
    Mr Ballinger
    Yes
    Can you tell me which hole you took it from?
    I'm thinking "Eh?" Ok where's the secret Camera?
    Come on Jeremy Beadle out you come!!!
    I said "You messin on?" whilst laughing..
    "No No Mr Ballinger i'm not sure "
    Well its the top most hole on the left hand side
    Anyway i thought you boys should know that!!
    Is that the drivers side or passenger side Mr Ballinger?
    It's that there is so many of them you see!!
    The passenger side mate..
    Ok no worries thanks for that your car will be with you at 5....
    One word....
    UNBELIVABLE!

    Thats because there aren't many 'traded' mechanics in dealerships these days..most don't even do all the courses to cover all the cars.

    all he had to do is find a computer terminal to get the fusebox layouts..

    Which hole is it?????
    Oh dear - it makes you wonder doesn't it. It's not like they have diagrams, CDs and manuals for that is it??

    Bit like my Vectra when its spring went - it was outside the stealers, looking very lopsided and they wanted to know what was wrong with the car. The same chain I might add
