Question about Volvo S40
My garage has replaced the clutch on my car yet it still has the same problem i took it in for i feel i have been conned what should i do?
A faulty clutch can cause many problems, and any car over 50,000 miles would probably benefit from a new one.
The problem is, nobody can definately say it is the major problem unless they strip it to have a look. It's false economy to then leave it there after taking the main engine out to see.
Any mechanic or guide would say always fit a new clutch and bearing while the engine / gearbox is split.
At least you won't need to worry about that for another 5 years - and it is an excellent selling point if you do sell it.
What you need to do is contact them again - explain the problem is still there after their work, and get them to give you a quote on the work needed.
You are entitled to get quotes this way at several garages - then choose which one you feel best able to do the job.
If you still feel that they behaved unlawfully, you can report the incident to a trade body or trading standards office. They can usually support a claim for compensation if needed.
Hope this helps.
