Re: Parts Warrenty
Hi Danny, and welcome.
I can see your perspective, but I would believe the dealer wants the part in situ, so 2 things can occur; 1. they can assess the repairing garage's work
2. the can run the diagnostics on the part, and all the vehicle's systems
Parts can fail prematurely if they have been incorrectly fitted, or as a result of some other consequential damage further along the line (neither of which would be covered under the parts warranty), and I'd be inclined to think this is why they are making you jump through this series of hoops.
Hope that helps to clarify their motives.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
2005 FIAT Ducato 2.8JTD LWB Gran Volume, 2000 Kawasaki ZZR 1100 D7 'fullpower' in black + full GIVI & KAPPA luggage, 2007 MB R-Class 320 CDi Sport LWB uprated by Brabus to 300Bhp don't know if there's a 155mph limiter - will be fun finding out! 2004 Mercedes Vaneo 1.7 CDi Ambiente 7-seater
