Got a staggering quote today....
Windscreen wipers on the X-Trail have been playing up - working when not needed, not working in rain & being totally random. Local garage had a look / play but said it neeed main dealer in case stalk etc had gone.
Booked it in today - £75 for the experience of garage telling me what was obvious - the motor's knackered. Then come the explanation that to replace it would be £241 for the motor
and 2 hours labour at £90/hour
as "I was a tricky thing to fit" and a random £14 for something to round it up to £425. That £510 for a wiper motor! Oh and the part needs to be ordered as it's a special, not standard part and I'd have to book the car in again
Took it back to local garage who confirmed they could only get the part through the dealership for £241 but should only take an hour ish of their cheaper labour, still £300+ and the £75 I've had to shell out today.
For a wiper motor!!!!
Has any one experienced a larger repair rip-off?
