    Help needed ASAP


    Hi all help needed in the Ashfield area. Iím in need of a mechanic who can give me a price and finish a job, a complete arse hole didnít finish. I paid upfront for an engine conversion from 2.4 to a 1.9td. After 3 months of patiently waiting, itís still wasnít complete as you can see. So I called him and asked when it would be completed for him to totally loose it, drag my van out onto the road from his unit and demand another £350. If anyone knows a decent VW mechanic that can finish the job, please forward them my number to arrange a time

    Heís tried to bodge the hoses from a 2.4 onto a 1.9td engine, a couple of belts and radiator and what ever else heís not done, ( possibly some electrical stuff) then just reassemble I think as not mechanical minded

    He was recommended by a friend as he has supposedly worked for sytner bmw, Halfords, Vauxhall and various other big brand car garages. So I had no reason to question. But everyone says heís full of crap

    I always raise my eyebrows if someone has worked at lots of places. Had 2 jobs in the motor trade apart from 20 years working for myself and never had an interview. Shame you weren't south midlands based i'd had a look myself mate.

    Did you pay him cash?
    Is he a registered business? He's in breach of contract, so why not fire a letter over to him giving him 28 days to complete the work as agreed or you'll be seeking compensation legally.

    Right, take some pics to demonstrate what the state of play is. What's the history of the 1.9?

    I may know a man who can?
    Can you transport the van to Derby?

    No thatís the problem, I donít know whatís wrong with it, as I had to pay £60 to have it recovered less than 500 yards. So not sure what is left to do. Thatís why I needed someone to come and give me a quote where it is and hopefully who ever does the job may be able to move the van to the place where work to be completed
