    Had my van repaired at a local dealer with all the relevant accreditation, yet still manages to produce outstanding workmanship like the photo attached
    Am I right in thinking this is very poor, or am I being a bit harsh, you thoughts will be interesting to read funsters

    I'd be asking the boss to explain how that got through. I'd be reluctant to pay a bill until I'd at least had that conversation.

    Looks like a very poor job to me. Trouble is how much is the diesel to take it back.

    Looks like it was done by the apprentice.
    On the plus side, there's plenty on so it shouldn't leak.

    Total lack of interest in what they were doing. Get them to redo it and take your business elsewhere in future.:mad:

    Looking at that the person that had a go, couldn't do it

    My cat could do better, but he does struggle to get it out the gun, having no thumbs.

    Pretty much sums up what I thought, think he's eyes must be painted on
    The thing is it a brand new van gone back in for some warranty work (shower tray) and it didn't have any silicon there before it went in only a small rubber seal against the bathroom wall
    Looks like the guy found a tube somewhere and thought, I know where that will look lovely around the toilet and decided to use the whole tube (didn't want to waste any)
    To me it looks like a crime scene in more ways than one given all the finger marks in it

    Poor finish not done correctly. Yes its sealed but it has to look cosmetically right as well.
    Or put another way if you paint and leave lots of drips it still does the job but looks like poop:mad:

    It appears to be a cheap job rather than doing it properly. As you say it had a rubber seal before you took it back so it should have one now particularly as its a new van. Contact them and demand they re-do the repair properly. I would also insist that they pay any expenses that I incur returning it

    What I'd also be wondering is if it just had a rubber seal there before, what have they found that required them to seal it using their toes. Have they discovered a bad leak?
    In my experience any 'extras' or unexpected work is not usually carried out voluntarily. I have usually had to bring something to their attention and do battle to sort under warranty. More often than not, its usually the opposite and half the stuff on the snagging list has not been attended to.
