I'm stu, new to the forums.
computer tech guy by trade.
Have had a Cmax for a few months now and liking it a lot more than my previous corsa.
Have recently taken an interest in trying to learn about cars as when someone kicked my wing mirror off the other week and a mechanic friend of my mothers advised it was £80 for the mirror and about £100 in time to fit...
After a google for parts finding a mirror for £40 and figuring out that the plastic casing just pops off if you wobble it slightly and from there is a screw and a bolt did the job myself.
So that experience has got me wondering what other extremely simple jobs do mechanics charge over the odds for?
so usb diagnostic cable, Haynes manual and a new socket/spanner/screwdriver set i feel i'm set for most things. well set for pestering forum members for advice
So yeah, Hi
