    Default had the car in dealers yesterday,waste of time?

    well ive had a wee rattle coming off the car for a couple of weeks and got it booked in yesterday,i suspected a power steering prob as the rattle was coming from that area and the pas is occasionally a bit noisy,got call from dealers too say alternator bearings are on way out but warranty company have refused too cover new alternator and pas pump until they fail completely the good news that they will be replaced under warranty but only once they fail completely bit of a p155er this as i dont want to break down somewhere obscure and get stuck,just aswell i dont do much mileage lol

    Default

    That's a fairly typical response for noises, bangs, and rattles
    I had a similar response for a switch that failed, although the function itself still worked

    Ironically if you do a high mileage then it would be more likely to fail within the warranty period
    However, you have lodged it as an item of concern so should be able to claim in the future

    Once the warranty expires, purchase a third party one, as you now know the part may fail eventually
