Yes, well I've contacted the said garage, and they are quoting me tomorrow, I do know someone who has done previous work after I've bought parts in the past and I am waiting for him to. So I will see what they charge and maybe post back on here with the estimates and replies to see if they make sense!
Thanks again for replies

Re: Mot failiure

If I serviced a car, and the brake load compensator seized up in two months.
The brakes were uneven/ pulling
And the back brakes not working.
Would be ashamed to call myself a mechanic...
Would love you take it back, stand your ground.. Get them to put it right.
ALL these points should have been addressed at the service, or why bother with a service..
If they had mentioned, not taken rear or front wheels off, not lifted the car to check the vehicle over,, then great, so just an engine service...
They obviously told you your car was ok, when you paid the bill,,, how.
Did they mention front brake pads sticking ,,, should have been done on the service.
Did they mention hand brake, and inform you new parts required...
AND to miss a load sensing valve,,,

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.
Currently in ours2012's garage:
My Baby ( or the shed on wheels )Laguna 2 estate with 12 months MOT..

Re: Mot failiure

Hi there, yes when we had the service they didn't mention any of it. It was a full service. They told us about brake fluid and anti freeze, which we had done and cambelt, which we had done. That's all they said about.
I will talk to them again tomorrow and state my case.
Thanks

Totally agree but here we are talking about you a genuine mechanic looking for the worlds best advertising which is word of mouth ...dont know how big or small this garage is ..is there any documentation saying a FULL service but as said go in be adamant stand ground and hope for a result

Re: Mot failiure

I paid for the full service, and got a sheet with all the ticks etc. I've used the garage before, when I first got the car and the work was fine which is why I went back to them recently. Will do my best tomorrow!
