Land Rover Discovery Clutch park brake issues
After owning a TDI, and then a TD5 it was only natural for us to move on to a TDV6. On purchase of the car I loved it!.
I bought the car Oct,08 and I have had to return the car for problems with the rear release button on the tailgate, fuel cap release kept getting stuck.
I have called out Assist 3 times for a park brake fault which also included the screeching symptom. My car is at a LR garage as I type and they called to say that there cld be a clutch problem and they asked me to auth a £250+vat fee for the strip down, they explnd if I need a new clutch and it is not down to wear and tear then all costs covered. Otherwise, I will have to pay for all costs. I have NOT agreed to the charge as I strongly feel that on a 2008 TDV6 with 20k on the clock that it shld not need a new clutch and suggested that it cld be a product fault as opposed to me riding the clutch which I do not do.
So now I am stuck, the garage have asked me to collect the car as they cant do anything with it unless I auth the strip down fee. But, after trawling the internet I have a very strong feeling that they are going to say I do need a new clutch which is down to wear and tear and that I have to cough up. I will not give up without a fight and I intend to go down to the garage to have it out with them again. If anyone can give me any advice on what I cld do that wld be fantastic. I was looking to move upto a Range Rover at some point, but, now they can sod off.
