Sorry clarification.

Was the initial work carried out by the same garage. If so then you tell them to sort it out. There should be no extra expense on your part.

If the original work was carried out by another contractor you take the vehicle back to him and he has to sort it. (this assumes he did actually replace the parts.) No matter, you paid for the work to be done on his advice, if the same symptoms are there its his responsibility. There should be no extra expense incurred by you.

You are not the expert they are. The car was diagnosed and a solution put forward. You entered a contract when you paid for the work to proceed. Their part is to return your vehicle correctly fixed. The car is either fixed or you get a refund on your payment for breach of contract. If you are told another problem exists then they should sort this on either a goodwill gesture or you pay for the part and they fit it free, once they have proved to your satisfaction this work is necessary.

If you took the garage or contractor to court they would lose.
