    Exclamation Tow bar fitted and emissions light

    I just had a tow bar fitted by a 'tow bar specialist', am quite upset as they have made a bit of a mess of it, the rear bumper has been wrenched off it's mountings (which have been damaged), the wiring is pretty shoddy - just clip connectors - and one has bare wires- the alarm for the indicator is intermittent
    Finally - I now have an emissions warning light - coincidence? They say they only have to drop the exaust off the rubbers to get the tow bar in place, so 'it can't be that'- apparently... Any suggestions?

    Also, just getting a bit of clutch slip occasionally, any idea what a reasonable replacement cost is. Am planning to drive to Sweden with a trailer in a couple of weeks.

    Sounds like they have damaged the o2 sensor that sits halfway down the exhaust, tbh if your not happy with the work take it back and tell them you want it doing correctly or you want your money back as it's not fit for the job
