    Thanks.
    They do fords? :)

    I'm not 100% sure on the back story or on the details what she said is the garage they go to just charged her £90 to fit a spark plug to her smart car and over £400 to fix the wipers on a Ford Galaxy. They asked for the car back and the garage said they need to pay £60 for them to put the car back together.
    She's after another garage.

    Not sure I assumed it was for a VAG, mind a Galaxy is a VAG as it is made by VW but then just has Ford badges on it.
    I know a few general garages over my way that are OK (Fareham).

    That £400 is possibly the right price for the job if it is the mechanism that has seized, £60 is also probably a fair price for the dismantling required to diagnose that the mechanism has seized and requires replacing. Again £90 doesn't sound that bad for changing a spark plug on a smart it depends on how much labour is required to access it.

    That is the problem if you can't do these kind of jobs yourself.

    I've had work carried out at the garage where my mate works and they are quite reasonable with their prices :-
