Hello Jeff,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Hi Shantal,thanks for your reply.Hopefully my question can be resolved by friday afternoon,as i intend to work on the car this weekend and didnt realise its mot runs out on sunday.Windscreen washers being inop will cause the car to fail its annual test,and make it illegal to use on public roads.

hi Shantal,your last message said the deposit is refundable,but there wasnt a link on the message to arrange it.Can you send me the link please,eventually the car fault was traced back to the ECU. so more money to spend to cure the fault many thanks jeff.
