Van Repairs near Zurich

Hi guys,

Got a couple of things that need fixing on my VW T5, the air bag light is on (believe I need a new sensor) and I'm somehow missing 2 pipes from the AC unit. VW Kloten wanted CHF1300 for this, which seems fairly expensive (even by Swiss standards).

Anyone recommend a decent local garage close to Zurich? Otherwise I will drop it over to VW in Germany for a few days, I'm sure they would be cheaper. I also need a service and a set of new brakes which I was going to do myself but if I can find a decent well recommended place I will throw them the job.

Cheers

The pipes for the AC- if the system is open you will need a replacement dryer unit , it wont be a cade of just pipes.

But.i would be asking why the the pipes are missing unless you removed them.

I would start pricing up for the possibility of a new compressor just in case.

Dryer unit, compressor and fit etc will be around 1000-1300euro! Unless using pattern or second hand parts

eBay has them for 300 in the UK if worst comes to the worst. So back to the original question, anyone recommend a reasonable garage?
