yeah you got that right when i got it back the bite was high and the gearbox was rattling as if the release bearing was rattling off the pressure plate but i was told that it was the gearbox not the clutch when i questioned the fluid dripping off the bottom of the bell housing i was told water when i tasted it it was brake fluid i was told it was overfilled and must have spilt so i told them we will see 1 week later the low fluid light came on and low and behold the clutch fluid was low as well as the gearbox dripping small puddles and a clutch pedal like a sponge they werent happy when i pointed out i was right in the first place and know my car better than they could but they admitted the seal on the slave cylinder was faulty and due to contamination the whole lot was ripped out and new parts put in most garages would have simply put the slave cylinder in and left the rest
What cost was there for replacing the clutch itself? did they charge you at all?

You get good dealerships and bad dealerships, just like you get good independents and bad independents. You will usually find all that separates them as a rule is the hourly rates they charge.
Tis a fair point Catch raises. Overall my dealers werent too bad, but then again they found a few ways to scrimp and save. i.e. I won a free service with them - took my car in, left it with them, on collecting, they had basically took a quick look over everything - nothing to comment, nothing done, nothing changed... baring in mind I had the fuel filter replaced only a few weeks before and was "advised" that the coolant could do with being replaced, and that the handbrake needed tightening - yet none of this was mentioned on that paperwork...
So even one good dealer, can find ways to save every penny they can. Good luck to them though, 01-04 exhaust on an 07 car
p.s Catch - I like the new quote in the signature!
