i was not gonna pay £220 out, so went up north to see the family and my mum said the mechanic they deal with is good and knows his stuff, so i gave him a ring Friday he quoted me about £40 to £90 depending on what was wrong with it. i dropped the car off on Saturday morning, it was there for about 3 hours. got the phone call to say it had been done (happy days) went down to pick it up and he charged me 50 quid. he said it was just badly seized. he striped the mechanism and cleaned it then put loads of lube on it when it was back together. i would recommend this small independent garage to anyone.
