wifey knows nowt about cars and I reckon if she hadnt got me involved he would of offered to fix it??
I think you're right. When my sister had her car mot'd (3 year old Peugeot) they wanted to charge her £300 odd for a headlight issue
She called my dad and he went along to see what the issue was... there was no issue and it passed. Strange that. I've often been the go to guy at work for anyone with car issues (even though i hardly know anything!) because people have been scared of going to a garage and getting ripped off, but i think that's how it works... if you don't know, you can't debate back and therefore things like that happen. I needed a rear replacement wiper blade for my car the other day and when paying for it in Halfrauds they really insisted that they fit it (for a fiver or something like that, plus wait around for someone to be available). It took me longer to get the wiper unpackaged than it did to remove and install the new one. I was wondering why anyone would pay for that service.
How to post pics: When writing a message, scroll down and use the "attach file" option. Where possible, a photo sharing service can be used such as Flickr, Imgur etc. The image location (usually ending in .jpg) can be copy and pasted between the ][ brackets that appear when you click the 'Img' button (you can find this button at the top of the message box).
How to post youtube vids: Click on the 'youtubeHD' button at the top of the message box and in the middle of the ][ brackets that just appeared, copy and paste everything from the youtube web address that appears after the = sign i.e if this is the url: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2cNqaPSHv0
just copy "K2cNqaPSHv0").
