    great way to start eh? had car 2 weeks and plastic pulley has disintegrated! Not sure whether its cos of water pump but it didnt overheat.

    Then to top it all, I cant open the glove now - where my warranty details are!

    Not a good start for me.

    Just come back to swindon from northampton on back on car transporter. Car wil be dropped of at Skurrays, the dealer who sold it to me in the hope they will fix it.

    Is this a result of a remap????

    Has anyone else had problems on the pulleys due to the extra power?

    cant see it being the remap mate but then again a remap could make a weak component fail, but it would have probs been on its way out anyway just happened sooner rather than later

    does anyone think the dealer I got it from will refuse to fix it and can they? I only had it ust over 2 weeks!!!
    They serviced it before I bought it. Funnily enough after I picked it up someone comented that it didnt sound 100%. I just thought it sounded like a diesel to be honest!!!

    Every car bought from a garage has a warranty, they cant refuse to fix it either. The acceptance period for a car according to trading standards is 4 weeks well thats what they told me

    thanks mate. It has a warranty but as far as im concerned Im not messing about with that. They can if they want to.

    Gonna need a courtesy car or hire car too. They can cover that.

    the garage you bought it from should give you one of there cars, if they start being funny just start whingin about how dissatisfied you are with only owning the car 2 weeks etc etc and if they cant at least supply you with another car you might leave them with the car and get your money back. stand your ground mate tell them what you want and make sure they give you it

    got car back - it needed a new pulley tensioner and glove box lock. All fixed, except they've marked the glovebox in fitting it! Why cant these garages take care like it was there own? Tossers.
