    Mark (ex TBTurbo foreman) at Unit 45, Lune Business Park, Lancaster, LA1 5FT (www.candmauto.co.uk to look, 01524843721 or email info@candmauto.co.uk) may be able to help you as he does do gearbox repairs. He had a Fiat in that was stuck in top when I was there and had it fixed the next day.


    I had my cambelt replaced. H
    is 'standard charge for all Fiat based motorhomes is £199.

    He has a secure and patrolled yard with two electric hook ups and a water tap. A courtesy car is available on first come first served basis.

    Mark removed, cleaned and lubricated the starter motor and adjusted the clutch for me as well as fitting the complete cam belt kit.

    The total bill was still only £199!

    The motorhome seems to run much better and I can now relax without worrying about the cam belt for the next five years.

    I cannot speak too highly of this firm and I hope we keep Mark in business until I need him next.
