Re: potentially breaking 2.5 v6 156
right then the bad news has arrived, it seems to be actualy leaking from the rack casting,not a seal or a tube!
the garage is good and I have known the guy for several years so basically trustworthy.
I am shocked that it is the actual casting that is cracked though and would welcome a second oppinion, I used to use Westune in Horwich who were great but have now left and sold the land to housing developers! so if anyone can point me in the direction of GOOD alfa savvy garages in bolton that would be cool.
I have been quoted £250 labour and £330 for the rack (recon) +VAT from Lythgoe in Bolton, so not awfult but still a very sizeable chunk of the cars value so a little undecided at the mo. Interestingly, a new rack was only £20 more.
The car is driveable but not ideal for any sudden manouver so dont want to take it well out the area
If i can get the use of a colleagues garage it may well be a breaker
Thanks for the help
