As some may know my car was hit at the drivers front back in october now. Had the insurance out to suppousedly access it ( was obvious they hadnt, on the report they claimed i had a 5 door saloon , anyway they didnt provide a report for the suspension side of it only the body) So thought id take it to a volkswagon dealer near me to have it accessed as it knocking and seems to hop a bit when doing very low speed manouvers, its bang on over 10mph its just under theres a problem with grip. so off they put it on the ramp, 30 mins later they ask me to come through. Went through to be met by one of their mechanics, hes stood under the car and turns around and says that it all looks fine to him, i said well obviously it isnt it's knocking, you checked the track rods, wheel bearing, roll bar, shock etc, yeah yeah he sayd all looks ok BUT i think you should have a 4 wheel aligement as this as this will show any problems. Now i know for a fact the aligment's out because you can see it is and 2, if he's already checked the suspension how the hell will the aligment show anything up. In the end it was just a case they wanted £80 out of me for something that i didnt want, waste of time. The only good thing that came out of it was that i managed to have a look under the car and it seems like its the shock but how do i check to see if it is definately that?
