Im currently having the cambelt changed om my 07 Galaxy 2.0 D and I must admit its not before time!

Just about to pick the car up on Saturday afternoon and go to work and get a call to say the garage have broken the crank bolt and its going to be days before they can get a specialist guy to remove the rest of it and get me back on the road.

Their problem? Or mine?

Sadly not an option.
Its a taxi.

And this broken bolt is proving very very expensive.
