    Default Cheers easy free Cambelt

    After a horrible grinding noise coming from the cambelt/auxillary belt on the first start of the day i took my car bk to the garage which i still have a warranty with.

    After my 2nd time with no avail where they lubricated the auxillary belt the wife complained and they took it bk changed the tensioner and auxillary belt n claimed it was fixed. (this somehow took a ****** week)

    The very next day the sound was still there. Angry, the wife put in a complaint saying it was taking the **** and we dont want to be in out for the next fews weeks with them blagging us off until the warranty ran out and how disappointed we were. I explained i was an engineer and that it cant be that difficult to check everything in the system and the wife mentioned the ole "these cambelts are prone to going early" and BAM today we have a very happy couple with a free cambelt and water pump change.... Sorry for the long explaination im just buzzing, was gunna change it myself at about 70k!!! Muhaha.
    I love my nagtastic wife (except when its directed my way...)
