Not so much rules, Bankers & insurers, Notorious for finding any excuse to wriggle out of paying, when morally, they should.
Not independant garages, but the use of none OEM parts, which I wouldn't wish to cover either.
Off topic.... Do much with the M9R?

Okey, I see so how about if like a VAT Garage would do a service on a car? As long as they use the right oil and OEM parts it's OK?



Nottnoc: No not really, except we were working like crazy on one particular engine on some Opel Vivaro/Renault Trafic from about 04-07 or something. Don't remember if it was m9r, but I don't think it was.

It was injector problems and because of bad water draining all the water would set down in the injector and it was a F..... pain to get out. We had to invest in a big badass hydraulic press to pull them out because they would always break inside the engine..


Other than that we don't sell that much of the M9R diesel engine, at least not in my area.

Brill engine, Let down by badly sealed scuttle, on early post 2006 models. And alleged lifetime fitment of cam chain, which snaps 100K miles onwards. (mines been done).
Sorry OP back to topic now, thanks.

Yes I actually do remember now. We've had some snapped timing chains on those.

Sorry just had to ask what is scuttle? It's not every technical words in english I'm used to.
When I googled it this is what I found. sooo.. I'm guessing he tries to fly away or something? Can't recall seeing him inside the m9r engine before though..
