for those of you that dont know me, My car is an XF, Iv spent over a year and a half rebuilding it, with little money as Im only young.
pics of my car here: http://www.wn.com.au/rcpark2/Ford/XFpaint2.htm
I took my XF down to get the tranny repaired last tuesday week, it had leaked and I thought they hadnt sealed it properly when the recond it, so fair enough they where all good about it.
2 days later I have to ring up (after they said they would call me) to find out my tranny case had a crack in it...wtf!
anyway I told them I had one out of an EA I brought the other day (tranny in the XF was from an EA)
ok, thats all good , the said they would swap the guts over.
few days later I go down there 2 find out what the hell is going on (the next tuesday) and he starts telling me, my car was to low and the tail shaft was hitting the tunnel at the back and this put preasure in the extention housing on the back of the box and cracked it.... now I dunno I wanted to beleave it, and I didnt. he was showing me where it had rubbed, and I told him that was from the previous owner who had the car on the bump stops, I even showed him the tailshaft (there was the tinniest little scratch on it cause it was from a different car) and he said "yep its been rubbing" I was just looking at him like bullshit mate, he then says Im missing the rubber bumpstop from the front of the diff, suprise suprise no such thing on the XF!
the tranny was from my other EA, I took it out ages ago cause it use to leak, now Im thinking, when the recond that box for my XF the didnt find the crack, cause it pretty much started leaking the day we put fluid in it (after I fitted the tranny on the engine and dropped it in)
and the car was only driven slow once for about 2kms to a shed. I dont really know what to do about it, just get it fixed and get a bump stop on the diff fitted.
I go back there today, to my suprise my car is sitting out the front, in the car park with the window down, as soon as I got out I seen the tinniest chip on my front bumper and was like "fuk" went over to it and its been popped out and under the bottom a big chunk of fibreglass is ripped out!
I walked straight in slammed the door and started going off at the woman behind the counter, she shat it, and went to go ask what happened, she comes back and tells me it probably happend when they took it down the road to the panel beater (to get that bumpstop fitted) I dont remember what I said I was that angery but I told her to go get somone to take my car out the back, I dont want sum dikhead opening his door into me.
then I left as she said it wouldnt be finished till tomorrow.
Im so pissed off because Iv been building this car for over a year, and done pretty much everything myself, then to have somone go and wreak that after I trusted them with my baby.
what I think Ill do is get it back then tell them Ill be paying the bill after I work out what the owe me (just make sure I get there bill first)
what do yahs reakon?
sorry bout the huge post.
