    some one has hit my car!

    Well as you might have guessed from the rather obvious thread title, someone has crashed into my car last night..... and drove off without leaving any details. So I wake up this morning to find the back end of my car about a foot closer to the kerb than where I left it the previous night. ( I'd parked about a foot from the kerb, cos i couldn't see it in the snow, and i didn't want to damage my alloys.

    When I went out the back wheel was tight to the kerb, and the other side, well the pictures say the rest.... back door is a right mess, it shuts, but the top doesn't seal now and it leaks



    Not too bad, fixable. I thought to myself, maybe £100 to fix it at the most.
    It wasn't until daylight arrived was I able to notice that the back passenger wheel wasn't how it should be and now appears to be bent inwards, no doubt from the force of being shoved into the kerb


    I was gonna go the the scrap yard tomorrow, and get a new door, but it looks like I am gonna have to get the car up on the ramps at a local garage to ascertain whether it now needs a new rear beam or rear bearing or something.....

    Thanks Kirsty *hugs back* I was rather upset to say the least about this, whats more annoying is though that if I went through the insurance, they'd only write it off and I'd loose my no claims, so I'm gonna fix it myself or get people to give me a hand doing it.

    Hi mate, thats bad, that things like this happen. Luckily the arch and cill are fine, the cill has a small scratch dent in it. The door I have been quoated £15 for a second hand replacement, I can get the paint for about £26 and a friend who is a spray painter could do it for me. Its the rear beam thats the worst part, though I've been quoted £50 for a rear beam from a 1.6 Sport, so its on discs
    Hopefully get it back on the road for about £150 maybe

    indeed! every cloud has a silver lining just check with someone about the handbrake setup as apparently there is a certain way to do it when you change to rear disks on a mk3, can't remember what but someone here will know.

    Thanks Kirsty for the input, I looked on ebay, and according to the listing, i spotted for goodridge hoses they fit all models except GSi, so from that i pressume the flexi's will be the same, just the handbrake cable will be different

    Some people are just born to be skcoc which is something we can't do anything about, unfortunately.
