    888 Splitter Smash

    Ok so taken my car in today for a wheel bearing issue at VX, for there speacialist to look at, get a call 2 hours later, great it is a wheal bearing problem however we have managed to smash your front splitter in the process!!

    Luckily they have held the hands up too it and have said they are trying to source one asap.
    On a side note, they quoted 322 to replace front wheel bearing, but hence they have damaged my car are going to do it for 200. Anyone know how the part is for a front wheel bearing?

    Couldnt have come at a worse time really with the clutch problems, alarm, CV boot and diff bearing problems!!!

    Front bearing can be had from eBay for about £50, vs the £150+ Vauxhall will want. Pay a 3rd party garage and you'll save a nice bit of money.

    I assume they will fix the hub for £200 and fix/replace your splitter for free. If they are knocking £122 off in lieu then you're out of pocket, so be careful you know what you are accepting.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Thanks for heads up, but they have said that they will replace bumper, it will have no cost to me.
