    DO NOT use Mr Clutch!!

    Had my car booked in for a new clutch, ended up having to get a clutch and gearbox, because apparantly the gearbox was leaking oil. Got it done, then it was leaking oil over my drive way, took it back and got some seals replaced and on collection there was a knocking noise which wasnt there before. They reckoned it was wear on one of the anti roll bar bushes and needed the whole thing replaced, plus my exhaust was starting to blow. Total bill 520.

    Took it to another mechanic who said the knocking noise was actually the lower suspension arm and the front section of the exhaust needed replacing because it looks like they dropped something on it. Had to folk out another 150 for it to be put right and was told that a seal would of fixed the gearbox issue instead of a whole gearbox!!!

    Fcuking robbing b@stards!!!!

    If you know what you're talking about and looking at then there's no way you could get ripped off...

    I used the crawley one the other week and seem like a great bunch - clutch replaced for under 200 and no other issues, even though my gearbox IS fucked! haha (2nd gear synchro has been a bit mullered since I got the car...)
