This answer was rated:

I own a Bosch MCM41 MCM42 kitchen applicance and I wish to order a drive shaft as the one I have is now splitting and is being held together with some glue! I live in Scotland. Thank you
JA: Do you know the model of your Bosch appliance? How old is it?
Customer: It is a food mixer, juicer etc combined. At the front of the instruction manual is reads MCM41 MCM42. I have owned the appliance for approx 5 / 6 years and it is working perfectly.
JA: Do you know the model of your Bosch mixer?
Customer: The front of the mixer only gives the Bosch name with no model number. The front of the instruction manual reads the numbers I have given previously.
JA: How long has this been going on with your Bosch mixer? What have you tried so far?
Customer: The drive shaft cracked about a month ago and I have been holding it together with super glue but I know this won't last indefinitely.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Everything else is working perfectly and I have no other queries about the appliance. I have had a number of Bosch appliances and have found them to be of very good quality.

When I contacted 'just ask' all I wanted to know is where do I buy/obtain a spare part for a Bosch food processor. I was eventually told to pay £5 to become a 'member' and someone would help me - which they did. I now know where to buy the spare part with thanks. I objected to the way this 'membership' was done and would appreciate the membership fee being refunded ASAP. This was a very complicated way of obtaining the information required and very frustrating. Again I would reiterate to please cancel this 'membership' and return the £5. I also assume this method is nothing to do with the Technician - he did point me in the right direction.
