I did a sneaky
I knew the service manager was going to be a slag.
So I parked in front of the entrance for the service bay.
Went into reception and said, 30 second job, can you replace a CTS sensor(not the wiring just the plug that goes in thermostat).
He said no, I am too busy, you need to book it in for next Friday.: I need to get wiring diagrams, plug it into tech 2 etc. I said to him I know the fault I just need someone to fit the part!!!
Now I could not drive the car with the fans running all the time and the temperature gauge not working.
So I go an start my car, it's kangarooing. I'm like swearing out loud so mechanics can hear in ear shot.
I go back in and say to the manager my car has died in your forcourt. He is like grr ok I'll get the car running so it is not blocking the entrance.
So mechanic looks at it, see the plug is broken, bring a wrench unplugs the old one, plugs the new one I got. 30 Seconds as I said!!
Car starts straight away....
Hmm, good thing I left it in first gear and not neutral when demonstrating and swearing
The mechanic clocked on, so I bought him a 8 pack of carling and gave him £5 for his troubles.
Heee heee heee. Some people are such idiots though and dont take you seriously. So return the favour...
