Tell your colleague that Growler knows an honest car repair man.

Is there such a person?

Anyway, apart from the cost of using a main dealer (!) two problems.

1) There was a loose exhaust, chap had popped to Kwik-Fit to have it checked last month but they said "nothing wrong guv"  Renault say needs new bracket and a couple of other bits but as they had fitted it the previous September it was not covered under the 12 month warranty.

2) He had bought a rear light bulb from Halfords a while back. They fitted it. Recently gets warning light on dash "electrical fault" ~ light gone out. Renault say bulb was incorrectly fitted (how?) and has burnt out the fitting. New rear light assembly needed.

Not for nothing does our Growler call them "Main Stealers"
