Question about 1993 Audi 90
Took my car in for a simple radiator leak, the guy said no problem...ended up with a new radiator then was told the car needed a new fan switch then it needed a new water pump now the guy calls me and tells me he bent one of my valves putting the car back into time. I only needed a radiator!! Who's responsibility is it to pay for this and now what am I looking at for getting it fixed? He said it is now in time but still won't start...I am just frustrated beyond belief!!
Regarding your radiator leak, some can be fixed but plastic radiators usually get replaced. A 1993 probably would need a fan switch by now if it was never replaced especially if it's the fan switch that is screwed into the radiator and is exposed to coolant. Again, a car this old would probably need a new water pump too but screwing up the valves is definitely his fault and should pay for all repairs. I'd have someone else do the repairs like the car dealer and charge him for it! Take it to small claims court if necessary. Lastly, if you signed an invoice to just have the radiator fixed and nothing else, your case is strong. If you signed an agreement giving him permission to do "whatever needed in his best judgement", well, your case weakens a bit in regard to having all the other parts replaced but he's still a fool for bending your valves. Sorry to hear of your encounter with this. Please post the name of this shop for the rest of us will know to stay away from it.
