Goto this thread Damage caused by my Mechanic
and see what the guy who was supposed to be fixing my car has done!?
I gave him my 156 on Monday morning for a full service (Cam belt/Aux Belt/Filters etc)
I wanted the car back for Wednesday and he said he would have it done in a day. Well, Wednesday came and went, as did nearly all of Thursday before I got my car back at 20:30 Thursday night.
All through the process I was ringing him, as was my dad. He was saying through it all how tough the job was, that all the bolts and screws had seized. He eventually got around to fitting all the bits to my car and getting in back to me, charging me £824.70 for all the work, £480 being labour (not inc. VAT)
Anyway, when I got the car home on Thursday night I saw that my side skit on the o/s was hanging off, then my n/s side skirt too (can be seen in all photos.) We put it down the fact that the belly pan was not on to hold the skirts in place as the mechanic had to remove the screws for the belly pan by drilling them out. He is supposed to replacing this at a later date...
Now, having washed my 'bella' today, I have seen that my wing has a 'fold' in it (bottom 3 photos) and this was not there when the car went in. This only leads me to believe that the mechanic has either dropped or crashed car into something while having the car in his possession, damaging the side skirts and the wing.
Right, now my rant is over, I need some help.
Where do I stand in all of this? Can I go back to him and say ‘they were not like that before, I want you to fix it, or, have it fixed and have him pay for it or do I need to file a small claims within the court system?
