please help guys (update on fan fire)
had a bit of a problem yesterday with my a3, my rad fan was stuck on so i called the aa he just disconnected the battery so the fan would not run it down. and said that i could reconnect it and drive to a garage to get it sorted. so i did this but as i was driving my car the engine caught fire luckily i was near a petrol station ran over grabbed a fire extinguisher and put the fire out. there is damage to engine parts but not the bodywork. at the moment audi have sent someone to look at the car and have sent the fan off to germany for testing.
bad parts i dont really know the best way to get it sorted my warranty run out three days before it happened (do people reckon i have a chance in hell with them because of the nautre of what happened?)
insurance have said something about they do not cover machanical fires? i cant find anything in any paperwork that i have which says this?
or if it is because of the part is it down to audi?
bit unsure about what to do i want to be careful as iam young and dont know if a can afford to pay for the repairs myself
would appreciate any help or info if anyone has been through something similar feeling very depressed at the moment as it took me a long time to save up for this car
