A moderator will most likely delete them. Multiple posts on the same problem just causes confusion and is frowned upon. One problem- one topic.

Garage
You replaced the clutch or you had a garage do the work ? If you have an issue with work done by a garage, write to them politely and explain the problem and try to resolve the issue. Keep a copy of all correspondence. If they fail to come to an agreement, contact consumer affairs and who ever the automotive repair governing body is. Check all electrical fittings are correctly plugged in and also check your earth points.

The key is being firm, pleasant and polite and keep a copy of all correspondence should you need to resort to consumer affairs as this goes in your favour should you need to go down that track.

If you did the replacement on your own, chances are that nobody is going to want to touch the car and even insurance companies may decline to help you with claims because of "tampering". But yeah, if the work is originally done by somebody, you should be able to get them to rectify what they created to begin with. Otherwise you should report them for bad customer service.
