    Default Shoddy Manifold & EGR Job by Vx

    My car went in last week for a new Inlet manifold & EGR, it was in for over 24 hrs & I got it back just as the garage was closing for New Year. Driving home I found the drivers washer jet wasn't working so popped the hood when I got home & found it had been shoved down flush with the surround, I guess it was leant on, no prob Ė sorted, but looking at the engine the plastic cover didnít look right & on inspection I found it was only located on 3 corners, so I took it off. I then found that the injector loom had been routed over the fuel pipes, this looks wrong to me although I canít find any photos but it's obviously the reason the cover wouldn't go on properly Ė Iíve also found the wiring connector on the end of the fuel rail is broken & a number of wires & pipes have not been put back correctly/securely & are floating around loose Ė Iím not a happy bunny

    Most of the wires & pipes that had clips to hold them in place have been left loose with some of the fastenings broken & others ignored. I'm now trying to work out if they've replaced the Electric Drive Module - I can see it but can't tell whether it's new or old

    Get back around there mate ASAP, leave as much as it is as possible. I would also contact VX UK direct and send them the photos and the name of the dealer.

    Seems you have been the victim of a rush job, i thought it was only me things like this happened to. As above take pics and phone VX customer care and take the car back tell them to resolve there dodgy work.
