Re: HELP espace dead at the garage, now car less!!

The problem here is that you have no proof that they did anything to cause this problem. As they say, it could just be one of those things.

The only thing you could do is ask them if there is anything in particular that could cause the card reader ECU to fail, and if this is a common problem on these cars (Never had an espace so I have no idea). By doing this you may be able to establish whether they potentially could of caused it when working on the Air conditioning issue and maybe, if it feels right, question them about it.

But yes I'd say it looks like you will have to pay the bill as it does appear to be just an unfortunate coincidence. There's no way the Garage is liable to pay if something else simply broke whilst it was in their possession.
