    Default Glad I got my Network Q warranty extension!!

    Had the car booked in before Christmas, and after New Year, for a few little niggles but only got it in today as I had to cancel the other bookings due to my movements (no, that those movements!! )

    The things that were niggling were.....
    • Chattering noise coming from the Multi-V belt area. Couldn't believe that it could need looked at again as it only had a pully replaced (again) in September under Network Q warranty. Only shows itself when started from cold - particularly if it's a cold/damp day.
    • Thunking noise from rear suspension area when going over bumps/rough roads. Had been looked at before and they said they couldn't find anything, but I was convinced something wasn't right.
    Dropped it off Monday night so they had it from cold this morning. Got a phone call this afternoon to say that they had found (hopefully!) the problems.

    Chattering noise they reckoned was the water pump - so that's been authorised to be replaced by Network Q. With labour it's almost £400!!

    The thunking noise they reckon are the two control arms on the rear suspension - again authorised to be replaced by Network Q. With labour that was a couple of hundred I think.

    So got the car back, parts being ordered and car will go back in again for the work. Hopefully that will sort it out.

    Oh, had a new Corsa (1.2 Design) as a courtesy car - they're not bad at all! - apart from being ferking useless for my work!! I had a job today and thankfully I didn't need to take a whole lot of gear with me - just a camera bag and a step-ladder. That only fitted in by being hooked over the passenger seat!!

    Yep, especially with the new electric/auto dimming rear view mirror I had done last year as well. I'm now wondering if I should have taken out the two year extension as I reckon I'll have this car into the middle of next year. Got no reason to change it at the moment and when I do come to change it the cars on my shortlist will be more available and that bit cheaper.
