Thanks for your reply. I have spent a lot of money with this garage over the years as have friends and family. The simplest thing to do is vote with my feet I almost considered the owner a friend but spoken to family and a couple have had issues in the past. Personally I do not trust a word they say, they should have done other work but didn't, unable to get bits but GSF and Euro both within 500metres had in stock.
Small claims is at least 2 years new liner £60, just not worth the hassle, two heart attacks later I know which battles to fight.
