Post by SOLDES » Tue Nov 12, 2019 9:31 am

Anyone notice what's wrong? Info : it went in for a lazy column tilt motor and all stalks are in their 'neutral' position .. :lol:

The whole column is clocked a few degrees to the right., you see the gap in the second picture in between the column cover and the moving gap cover.
The LH stalk is higher than the RH one, almost as if you engaged the stalk to signal to the right …
car drives straight so i guess its just the column which has some adjustability.

Honestly

It begs belief, how on earth could we even trust them to change the oil to the correct level let alone the correct spec

bunch of F****** muppets, sometimes these dealers need a big fat kick up the arse :x

Hi guys
I'll give them a chance to rectify and it's a Belgian dealership probably no-one on here will ever visit.
But yes such a small detail does make you wonder what will be next when they tackle a bigger job like dropping the steering rack to access the motor mounts. Maybe I'll be going to the left when steering right next :)
Like my wife said, you payed a decent amount of money for a car, you would at least expect for them to have highly skilled technicians who take pride in their job. Dream on I thought.
