Re: Old fuel filter

Find it happens all to often ....I'm a panel beater to trade and daughters car was bumped and went to an approved repairer so I took her down to pick it up ..as we came out with the guy at the bodyshop I noticed the gaps round the wing and said to him ...closer inspection he says gaps are fine the other sides the same!!! oh good says I as Stevie wonder must've remembered to change both ...broken headlight refitted, off spray over the roof ...wasn't amused when I said lets get an assessor back in

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together

Re: Old fuel filter

this reminds me of the occasion my old boss asked me to go with him to collect his caravan from the local storage / service centre.

We got there and he paid them for their services and went out to collect his van. The service guy brought it around the front, first thing I noticed was, it was filthy dirty from the windows up, (looked like it had been parked outside under sappy trees) then when he stopped only one brake light worked. When he unhitched it from his van, the jockey wheel squeaked, and was so stiff my boss couldn't turn it to hitch it to his car. Whilst he and the service guy completed the hitching up I walked around to the other side of the van where I noticed the tyre was looking a bit soft.

Well I lost it, this guy was going to send my boss out on the road with this fully serviced caravan, I asked to see the service job sheet It read:

  • n/s brake light not working , n/s tyre to be replaced, gas leak on check valve, full service wash and valet.

The service guy eventually admitted that it looked like they had missed a few points on the list!
