ARGH!!! Exhaust problem fixed, Yeah Right!!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Right time for a bit of a rant! I apologise in advance.

2 weeks ago I had to park up the Arosa, as it decided to leak diesel all over the place and impersonate a v8 :tongueout: Took a look at it and the exhaust was in shocking condition and the fuel cooler had got a leak.

So after searching all over fuel cooler and posting on here to see if there were any alternatives, I had to give in and do the one thing I hate. Take the car to a GARAGE :rant:

I am fussy with the car and hate other people fiddling with it and thought I would be okay taking it to the local VAG specialist (now I will be nicer than I should and leave out their name). Got the car through to them, explained about the fuel cooler and said about the exhaust. They phoned through the next day and said they could get the fuel cooler but it would take 10 days! So I decided to let them go ahead and asked them to check over the exhaust completely. "Sure no problem, we'll call you when it's done" was the response I got.

So yesterday I get the car back, and get this with it:


So i was happy, apart from the amount, but no drama. It was fixed! Yay! But then......

Took it a for a drive this afternoon and something fell off....


BRILLIANT!!!! :rant::rant::rant::rant::rant::rant::rant::rant:

Anyway rant over...

And if any of you guys are in the Aylesbury area and want to know where not to take your car feel free to PM me,

Looks like the back box to me? Or lack of one!! Definitely part of the WHOLE exhaust.

Another reason why I always try to do my own work

Yep, it's the back box! And it is the last time I will trust anyone to work on the car but me. A little embarrassing as it nearly took out the car behind me. :surprise:
