    3 toothed drive belts snapped due to incompetent RAC technician

    cambelt tensioner (used in toothed pulley setup) replaced due to incompetent RAC technician
    aux belt failed and replaced due to incompetent RAC technician

    Well just me then with a Car that's cursed !! Got it back from JMR running really really nicely now. 2 weeks later it gets hit twice whilst parked, same day 2 different places& no details left. Then a stone flicks up and puts a crack across one of my fogs. I buy some replacements and realise they're the wrong type, my cars a 92 with an early interior but late bonnet and as I've found out late fogs

    Spent 100 pounds on a new aircon condensor. Managed to ruin the thread when fitting an old hose onto it..... to make matters worse, on disconnecting the hose it snapped a piece off the receiver drier...
    Expensive day as I need to sort the hose as well. 3 items all sha##ed. AGHHHHH
    Good job its the Corrado and these things are the norm for us !!!
