Timing chain/decoking valves
I recently took my cooper s for the timing chain to be replaced. The cost for this was over £1000 including the diagnostics. Within 10 days the car was misfiring and I took the car back to the mini dealership. Again it went on the diagnostics and this time a decking of valves was required at a cost of £2500. Mini paid for parts and 50% of labour charges but my bill was still over £1000. The car has done 22000 miles and is 2007 model. My question is, should the mini dealership have diagnosed the valve problem during the initial repair to the timing chain on the diagnostics computer? I have asked for a copy of both diagnostics reports, which I have paid for, but have not recieved anything. Do I have legal recourse on the mini dealership to recover some/all the money paid for the valve decoking, which should have been spotted? Your advice would be appreciated.
