The Mini garage is quoting £99 for diagnostics on the screen wash and thats before any work starts!!
Ha ha, Diagnostics? the MINI mechanic comes out and has a look and says yes youre right it is empty, that will be £99 please.
I dont think its necessary to have that on the screen wash system, it must be fairly obvious if youre losing water, theres a leak, maybe a perished hose, split washer bottle, any signs of water on the ground?
Thing is with all this diagnostic stuff, they will charge you that £99 and then say they cant find anything wrong, even though there is.
You might need to do that on the electrical/engine side for fault finding, but I would have thought it not necessary on the wash system for a water leak??
Its like a standing charge, it bumps up their bill, and in a lot of cases its money for old rope.
I wouldnt take it to MINI for something like that, Id do it myself, or in your case, find a local garage, its hardly very technical and it will be much cheaper.
