    Relieved...

    Bluday hell am I relieved. If anyone saw my car at PVS you might of saw that the rear driver's side arch was bubbling up quite a bit with rust. Not much good for a 5 year old car!

    Anyway, took the car to the bodyshop today and he's going to be able to source a replacement panel and got it all sorted for £170!

    Been having nightmares about it recently! Glad it's finally going to be sorted.

    Yeah, but they blew me off saying that there had been previous work done on the wing which had caused the rust, so I had no comeback on that.

    For this to be valid though the car has got to have been checked by a vauxhall dealer once a year. As i recently found out when queried about stress fracture on drivers door. Damn them.

    Not if there has been work on the section which has not been done by them.

    Thought that may be the case, just thought i'd check cause i hate for you to pay for something you could have got free.

    Still a good price tho.

    Yeah don't worry, I do appreaciate your help.

    I was a little gutted when VX told me they wern't going to cover it becuase I thought it was going to be a big job, but that price does soften blew it.

    Thanks for the advice.
