hi a few month ago i had a new water pump an cambelt fitted on my redtop by benchsound in stanford-le-hope.anyway since then my car has covered 2000 miles an its started making a funny noice from the cambelt area.last weekend i removed the cover to find my cambelt was slack with half the teeth missing so i set about replacing it.i found out the water pump they fitted was the wrong one the belt didnt even sit in it right thats why the teeth are missing.the work they done cost me £350 which i paid because i need the car on the road but now it all needs redoing.:mad: they didnt even have any excuse for getting the wrong one becauce i told them it was an astra gte redtop with the early set up which it states on my invoice.im guna set about claiming my money back tomorrow long story short never go there.:mad:

joke mate, complete joke.

i dont know what it is with some of these places! i mean they must of known is was the wrong one! lazyness comes into it when they couldnt be bothered to send it back and wait for correct pump!

i would be straight on the phone to trading standards!
