    Default oil leak update

    took my car to the dealers today for the repairs to be carried out on the oil leak,
    it is the oil seal and whilst it is stripped down they are also going to change the flywheel ....as there are known faults with the special type of one that is fitted to my kind of car..
    thankfully it is all being done under warranty so wont be costing me a penny

    luckily they have allowed 2 days worth of courtesy car for us as a precaution so we have a lovely meriva ''life'' to be going on with...

    Hi ditchp, Which dealers do you use mate?

    I am also from Nottingham and was just curious as to were you go. I use Evans Halshaw in Lenton (formerly Reg Vardy)

    We could always have a 'mini-meet' at the dealers as my car is always in for something or other. It's just had 5 water pumps, a complete new lower arm and suspension mounts, a drive shaft bearing and the latest is a new high pressure diesel pump

    They were brilliant when they were Vardy's it's when they changed to Evans that the service went downhill. The old service manager and one of the directors left when they changed as they refused to work under Evans ethics.

    Where abouts are you in Nottingham? I'm in Calverton. I take it you'll be attending tomorrow nights charge to the play-off final?
