this car has it in for me ::) wiper was fixed – wiper then decided it most definately WASNT fixed and as i cleared windscreen flew off and landed other side of busy main road – is probably stil there >:D
Try to drive to nearest car shop to get it fixed – starts BUCKETING it down with rain :boooo: so had no choice but to stop and call AA – very nice man came and rescued me – thought it was hilarious that my wiper was somewhere up the road ::)
However it is now fixed – and he promises it wont fall off again……………better not! So hopefully all is now ok for Discover Dogs tomorrow – couldnt of driven up with no wiper 😀November 7, 2008 at 8:17 pm #97947
had both mine nicked in my drive. only realised when i backed out (in rain) to see these bits of metal going across the windscreen without the blades ???
AA are very nice men. if he says it wont fall off, it wont.November 7, 2008 at 9:05 pm #97948
OMG deebee – why would some one do that they not exactly expensive – i think i had been driving around for two days with no clip on it didnt realise til it fell off – twice :embarrass:

If you get any more hassle and they start being funny just mention ‘Watchdog’ seems to do the trick 😉November 11, 2008 at 7:41 am #97954
or trading standards. you have a contract with them, with three month warrantee, and it should be fit for purpose.November 11, 2008 at 7:59 am #97955
not sure ive invalidated my warranty by having work done myself however how am I supposed to take a day off (cos it would be to get there) to get it looked at then another day to get it fixed? Least this way I can work and make some money to pay for it.
they still getting the bill though :yes:November 11, 2008 at 8:04 am #97956
keep a record of calls etc including when and who you spoke to. and let them know it. as in ‘erm, hang on, im just writing that down, and your name is?’
