If you could give us some advice it would be great.
So because the part is expensive you feel the dealer is conning you. I will happily give you some advice, before you come onto a public forum slagging off a well respected dealer, find out the facts of what you are talking about. Judging by what Trickii is saying, you are not being taken for a ride.
Regarding your prevoius post, my post says ''taken for a ride or not'' meaning am i and can people give advice, the reason for having forums with advice is so people can help not Criticize.
The only reason i asked for people to check is becuase they have tried to make me buy a wiper arm because the plastic cover has been damaged at the bottom of the arm, they said this is all one unit when clearly like most other cars i check the other day and it just pulls off, i have no problem with paying good money for a good job just wanted some reasurance.
Thankyou to all others that were most helpfull.
