it will be sorted, but now im waving bye bye to the money i had for my hybrid turbo. Im guessing its gonna cost me about 1200 quid to get sorted, its mega labour on the A3, a whole day just to get the damn thing off and a whole day to put it back.

Right, first, sorry for this essay.....

A few weeks back, our car was hit in a car park, little bit of damage to front wing and front right alloy. Then, our MAF sensor failed on us and a knocking sound started to appear. Next, car was hit again, this time rear bumper damaged, both times it was hit no details were left. Well, we went to PTS today to get MAF problem and knocking sound sorted, only to find the knocking sound is something moving round in the gearbox :( This basically means, gearbox has to come off (whole days work) and be rebuilt, then put it back on. Its not gonna be cheap at all. :( Obviously im not best pleased, although PTS have given me a courtesy car free of charge, although it is an M reg Escort.

Talk about shit luck:(:(
