2015 Micra.

The front wipers stopped working last week, possibly because some idiot turned them on when they were frozen solid. The idiot did know better. :-(

Garage gave me car to go home in and rang me when the job was done.

After market parts and labour plus VAT = £178.

Is this a reasonable price?

Oh dear!

I am surprised that the linkage failed rather than the wiper blades splitting although I have seen this several times on MGF and TF when the linkage mechanism was so weak that it was the first point of destruction.

Considering they gave you a courtesy car and that's an all-in price, its not that bad really for a dealership

Seems that the linkage is a weak point on Micras, loads on ebay, but I could not expect my garage to buy from them.

Seems a new part costs £160 from the main dealer, mine cost £98.

Yow!

To be quite honest I'm getting fed up of chucking money at a car that does about 6 miles per week. I look after a mate's dog 3 days per week and take him home, but the owner could always pick him up. I think the main reason I keep that car is if my little dog goes poorly and I need to take her to the vets. A taxi is out of the question. All taxi drivers around here are Muslime and they will not carry a dog.
