Are you looking for a replacement Martin?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i am attempting to get a part for which you have taken £20. not being rude but not sure whats going on. i dont want to pay £13 more pounds to chat to you about a part, providing you can identify it.

I haven't offered you that service Martin.. All I have asked is "Are you looking for a replacement Martin? 25/03/2016 10:49"
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
yes, the information accompanying this web chat is offering me these options to find this part.
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 11 months ago.
Is this the part Martin?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
it does look like the part i have in my hand. if i take the dirt bin lid off there is a filter beneath. if i remove the filter there is the dirt bin with a central portion with an insert retained by two lugs. these are broken. they retain what looks like the part you have shown
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 11 months ago.
Ok Martin.. The part you are looking for is part number(###) ###-####. I have just done a search for you and found the part for less than £10...Please rate the assistance I have given you todayHere is a link to that part regardsGeorge
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the part looks the same but doesnt show clearly the central insert where the lugs are broken. is this included in the assy?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i have been to order the part, and gone to check out, where it gives a price for this item plus postage. it doesnt show the good faith deposit(£20) i paid for this information and part number. what has happened to that?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 11 months ago.
Martin, the part that you have asked me to find is on a different website... You'll need to pay them for the actual item.. The amount that you have paid to just answer is for someone to assist you.. I have assisted you by finding the part that you require, giving you the part number, and then finding somewhere where you can purchase it cheaply.
