Hello

Hi
Another newbie, drive a 147 2.0, just fumbling round the site at the moment trying to find some info on local-ish garages due to some ridiculous quotes for repairs from a dealer!

Great site

Re: Hello

Thanks to all for the warm welcome.

I live in Lancaster, done a bit of searching and found a couple of potential indie's to follow up on, namely Heath Road in Sandbach and Ferdi's in Lytham. Anyone know a number for Ferdi's, and does/has anyone use either of the two places?

Should mention the car is 147 2.0 on 02 plate.

A couple of faults need looking at..
Slight vibration and rumbling noise on steering when slowing down at motorway speeds, not noticeable at slower speeds. Dealer in carlisle diagnosed this as excessive play on ball joints? Front tyres also worn more on the inside.

Also internal air con fan doesn't switch off even with ignition off! Having to pull the fuse all the time. This fault started a 5/6 weeks ago when the fan actually wouldn't work at all, the reverse now seems to be the case. Suspect this may be down to moisture as it cleared on it's own, then came back after heavy rain. Anyone any history of this?

Lastly cambelt change, roughly what should you I be paying for this?

Any help greatly appreciated.
