    Default DMF/Gearbox

    Just pick up my car today from garage after DMF and gearbox change!First gear sometimes is difficult to put on ,on third gear big vibration and still knocking after when you take your foot of the accelerator pedal!!When I call them back mechanic said that now they have to wait 2 weeks when manager will be back from holiday because they will have to replace some parts witch are not on manufacture warranty.They didn't change clutch.Car has done 30000miles.

    They really should've done the clutch while it was stripped.

    30k miles? How old is the car?

    I had a new flywheel and clutch fitted in my car 3 months ago and its perfect,my car has done 120,000 miles,you should not have to wait until the manager has come back off his holiday,surely somebody else has some authority,i would not be happy and would let that be known to this garage
