A call from the painter yeterday saying " your cars finished"
"Give the glass guy a call & get the rear glass fitted"
Promptly called National Windscreens and arranged an appointment for this morning
He arrived at the body-shop and completed the task
The car was outdoors when he fitted the glass, he was alone
He came to my office to get his work sheet signed to say everything was OK, I declined as I hadn't seen the job
I would sign later
I went to collect the car, as excited as a kid on Christmas eve
It's looking ace (pictures will follow)
The sun was shining (although it was 0 degrees) but it would be wrong not too
A quick flick of the button saw the windows drop, the boot open.............
And screw all else
The roof has been up and down loads of times in the short time I've owned the car, I wanted to make sure it was in good working order
The painter has had it up and down a few times too, always without issue
I got on the phone to the glass man, he appeared within the hour, and said he fitted the rear screen without dropping the roof? as he said "It wouldn't go down" first time both myself and the painter heard this story
He's saying it's nothing to do with him! as is my painter
What would you do? is this just coincidental?
Having had a quick look around this forum, I tried this later and it worked
As the boot is fully open pull it further towards the rear of the car, bingo the roof folds down
Suggesting it's the sensor in the boot (offside)
My problem is...... I handed the car over in good faith, with a fully functioning roof and got it handed back broken
Who do I fight with? as both are saying "Not my problem"
