Re: [Zurich] Garage Cleaning for MFK... Was I just unlucky?

OK thanks


Just to be clear: I never thought that they loosened the dampener on purpose! My idea is more that it happened accidentally when they checked the car the first time, maybe when they lifted the car, and they didn't notice (I do not see any other possibility, since the noise was not there when I brought the car there the first time, and was there when I took it back).


Regarding the MFK: yes, I know I could have avoided troubles by just cleaning the car myself. The point here was really "a test": I wanted to see how much I could trust them by risking something now that the required operation was minor, rather than bringing the car directly for the big stuff.


But OK, for the upcoming big stuff I will ask a quote first.
MFK once failed my car as a small piece of rust needed welding, when I went for the retest I noticed that the MFK had missed a broken spring..... The MFK is very variable, best to take a car with just an engine wash & see if it passes. I got 2 cars through that would have never passed a UK MOT, so don't do work unnecessarily, it's a waste of money.
