    Default Car booked in for warranty work

    Ive booked my motor in for some warranty work at Arnold Clark Winsford ( God help me ) as I get an intermitant lumpy idle which sounds like its missing. Also I am getting a BOYNG / DOYNG / CLANK from the front of the car when I go over bumps, potholes or accelerate / brake hard. I had a look today while it was on the ramp at MPG but coulnt see anything so I will have to wait to hear what the idiots at the dealers think.
    I have no faith in Arnold Clark but my only other dealer is Grassmere in Crewe but that is to much like hassle.

    Good luck mate. Only been there once to look at a car they were advertising. Not impressed. I assume you will removing anything from the car that needs to stay at home.

    I'm sure they are, but not 100% sure. They may class it as wear and tear.

    I also had this on my 2.2 which I bought just before Xmas on the passenger side, my local VX dealer said it was the anti roll bar bushes and tie rod ends which caused the noise. When I bough the car I also bought a 12 month RAC warranty, guess what?? they weren't covered, classed as wear and tear!!
