    Autovaux in Wakefield quoted me £50 for the linkage, and its free to fit yourself if you own some torx sockets You can repair your own mate, for the cost of a plastic bag. Mine has lasted a year inc all the snow.

    DO NOT GET A MOTOR WITH IT, ITS NOT NEEDED.

    Its a mistake on EPC. Buy it and fit it yourself, takes about half hour
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Plastic bag is better. The reason it falls apart is because the ball and socket have worn. You just need to make it tighter again. You fold a plastic bag over the ball and push the socket over. If it pulls off with little force then just put one more layer of plastic over the ball. I did it till it took all my strength to pop it back on and sorted.
