    Dealers mistake. What can I do?

    Hello. I decided to give the sat Nav console a go in my coupe'. So I went to my local dealers with the part number for the centre console but was then told it was wrong and I needed another one so he ordered that for me and I picked it up last week. But now I have sprayed it and went to fit it I noticed it's the wrong one! It's for a climate control model which mine isn't! What can I do? Cheers!

    like buyin a pair of jeans, takin em home, cuttin the legs off then realising they are the wrong size waist then tryin to take em back!

    youve modded the part so forget it!

    even if u hadnt touched it, i doubt you would have had any chance of replacing it either as you accepted the order and failed to check it upon delivery.

    I brought front and rear mudgaurds for one of my Vectra c's. Gave them to my sprayer to sort and when went to fit them found had been supplied 2 front pairs. Took one pair back and they supplied new rear set and sprayed them for me so you dont get if you dont ask!

    but that would be a case of the wrong parts delivered!

    front and rear ordered but 2 sets of fronts delivered - totally different scenario


    guess you could argue both ways but with something as simple as a gaping big rectangular hole as opposed to 3 circles then i cant think he has a leg to stand on!!


    not quite the same as mudguards surely


    give it a go mate but i certainly wouldnt warrant a refund/replacement etc when A youve modified them and B its such a blatant difference between what you THOUGHT u had ordered

    I am guessing the part number you had was the correct one? and you went with the part mans other one?

    If so, its your word against his, and you probably get nowhere with it.
