Starter Motor

Gah!
after getting the new starter motor on to sort the screeching noise, seems the new starter motor is faulty. This happened 3 times yesterday where you try starting up and all you get is click and nothing. Car is in on thursday.
Tried to get a courtesy car but as usual get the responce of none available

Arnold *gags* clark strike again maybe... they've probably kept the new motor, skelped your old one with a soft hammer and gave it back to you after 7 hours of it sitting on their forecourt! B)

Think if it was the old one, it would still work, never had this happen before. And they have been moaning about service history too, even though we only got the car in august

I got provisionally booked in for my 12,000 mile service by Dundee Arnold Clark. But i've only has the car 6 months, and even with my highish milage i've covered just under 7000 miles!

Gimps!

there is 24,000 sitting on ours at the moment, but we where led to beleave the service wasnt due till august of this year by the salesman, but it seems they want it done on the month of registration. If we went by miles, it wouldnt be due till 25,000 as we got the car with 13,000 on the clock
