Help! Garage needed tomorrow...

Recommended Posts

I've just had the AA out to my 2002 Ford Focus and they've confirmed that the clutch is completely gone. However, there aren't currently any garages open for it to be towed to.

 

Does anyone know of any garages open tomorrow that can do this kind of work AND offer a tow/recovery service? I've scoured the internet and Yellow Pages without any success.

 

If not anywhere open tomorrow, does anyone have any particular recommendations for a garage I can call on Monday morning, preferably one that won't rip me off? I'm in the S2 area if that helps...

I don’t know about a garage but if you have home start just phone AA again for a tow to the garage when you find one.

Thanks Malky - I didn't know I could do that and funnily enough, it's not something they told me when they came out!

Thanks Animal. If you don't mind me asking, roughly how much did it cost you for clutch replacement from them?

Mark at the side of the Netto at Hillsborough specialises in Focuses, think his garage is called Mark One, very good service.

I know the RAC will only tow you once for a specific fault, I wouldn't be suprised if the AA are the same, so they may refuse to move the car a second time for the same fault.

you will be looking around £350 for it done,i have a 2002 mondeo and it was around that,just hope yours doesn't have a duel mass fly wheel,i was lucky it wasn't damaged if you need fly wheel you can just about double that price!!

Fantastic... that's just what I need! Thanks for the info anyway everyone - it's much appreciated, even if it's not what I wanted to hear :-(

 

I will ring the AA again today to see if they will move it tomorrow for me. They didn't actually touch it last night - they just left it parked outside my house. We agreed there was no point taking it anywhere as there wouldn't be a garage open at that time on a Saturday night.

Try AMBERLEY GARAGE, they are situated at 17-31 Attercliffe Common, Sheffield, S9 2AE

tel (0114) 244 91 51. They also open 8.30am and also have a recovery service, and are quite competitive on prices.

 

Best of luck.

Brilliant - keep the recommendations coming!

 

Just rung the AA and they've confirmed that even though they didn't do anything to or move my car, they won't come back out so looks I will be needing a recovery service after all.
