I think you will probably find that the problem will get worse (and they will be able to diagnose the source of the problem) just as soon as the warranty expires (as if by magic - pure coincidence or what?).
However, this ploy does backfire, because you have notified SEAT & the dealership during the warranty period - it still gets coverage when the warranty expires. Get confirmation that the garage have investigated this clonking noise in writing.

Make sure it gets MOT'd at that garage - it will fail (probably) due to excessive play on one or more suspension components - they will ask you to pay - you kindly inform them of the fact it was noted (aknowledged) & not fixed during the warranty - problem solved.

Just another option that you may not have considered.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
