Took my mini for an Inspection 2 service today, and oil change, which pretty much caned my bank balance.
I was then told I needed to have power steering rack fixed as its leaking, and the front wishbone brushes are apparently split, along with filler cap rubber is perished etc, anyway just the stuff that needs to be done tallys up to over £800. Which I think is madness!
Anyway back to the Rev counter, they discovered it was knackered, they tested another with it and it was fine. They quoted me £171 to have a new one fitted, so I think im going to get one and do it myself, surely it cant be that hard, I was told that it would take 15mins for a mechanic to do it.
