    Default got the vectra back

    after it being off the road for about 3 week, i was able to call the aa man. came out, did his checks bla bla bla, after taking him a brew out he said 'bad news, its your alternator' . i jst acted surprised cos i 99% knew it was this anyway! he give me sum charge and followed me to a local garage then dropped me off back home again! then after a bit of messing about on the phone, the aa gave the garage confirmation to start the work at about half 4. the morning after it was ready to pick up.

    i also rung ATS who charged me for a new battery (around £83), despite them not checking my charging system which it states they do on the website. explained they had wrongfully sold me a battery when it was my alternator so getting a full refund AND keeping the new battery.

    i jst gtta send my garage reciept off to aa now to claim the cost back for the alternator, £270 including labour and vat, minus £35 excess.

    anyway feels good to be back in the vectra and i managed to see my family before crimbo ! happy days
