    Talking Happy Chappy

    After 2 weeks of frustration I finally got a result on the vibration problem.

    Got the car into the dealers first thing this morning to be met by a happy smiley service manager, who soon lost his smile once I started. I explained the symptoms and his first reply was "get the wheels balanced"

    He soon took notice when I asked him if I looked stupid and I found it fun taking time off work to bring my car to the dealer just for a visit.

    Anyway I left the car and got a call about 4:30.

    "We have looked at your car and the front nearside wishbone needs replacing, the track rod end also needs replacing and both rear shocks are gone"

    FFS how much is that going to cost.......... don't worry sir we will replace all the parts under warranty. RESULT

    Parts will be in tomorrow and if fitted I will get the car back tomorrow, if not Wednesday.


    Not going mad after all

    Well done indeed ... isn't it really scary that it takes all this to get them to find the blummin fault they should have found on the first visit though!?!

    - good news there! Although as ukanalyst said, why couldn't they detect that when it was in the times before?!

    Hope it all sorts it out when they fit the bits.
