    Following a trip to "Western Truck rentals" in Barnstaple at an ungodly hour of the morning I now have a full set of excellent working brakes. I cannot praise them highly enough having come out to bleed the brakes for me last week they found the master cly had seized in one part. Despite coming out 10 miles to me the office manage had told the mechanic no fix no charge. The mechanic told me I needed a new master Cyl. I ordered it from Exeter and it was delivered Saturday but health prevented me from fitting. Western Truck Rentals booked it in for 8am this morning. three quarters of an hour later the new one was fitted, brakes bled and adjusted. £68.31 inc 2 litre brake fluid and VAT. First class service at a reasonable price. Many thanks. If you need repairs to a large vehicle I recommend them unreservedly.:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    That's a good result and not a bad price as nothing is cheap nowadays, with good service as well.
    Can't be bad.

    Or even take a brake.

    Seems a very fair price for what they did.

    Sometimes it is better to give it to a garage/works to do a job and save the hassle to yourself

    No fix, no charge - OMG it's not often you hear that said these days, I'm really pleased you've got it sorted :Smile: (I will be in touch about my situation shortly, just waiting for some info.)

    Thats good news Rog its cheap by any means its also better than scrambling up an down to do the job yourself ,it is easier sometimes to let some one else do the struggling especially for £68.00.Happy motoring:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
