    Took the 'van' to Thames Fiat monday for a faulty temp gauge - Warranty work and a noisy wheel bearing. Got a call saying the bearing was not covered under warranty and it would cost £230. Called Fiat customer Service, logged a call and just had a return call from them. They will pay for the bearing etc and all I need to pay is £110.92p. Now a happy bunny for once.

    Hi bri

    Yes, they refunded me the cost of the repair and said they would give me 10% off of my next service and MOT. Shame my mate does the serviceing for a fraction ogf what they would charge. However, its the thought that counts.

    seems to be a bit of theme with the 656 and wheel bearing then.

    I had mine replaced o/s one as well after only 25k. Didn't think to run it by FIAT though, just went out and brought one and fitted it.

    We are off to Peterborough in the van this weekend, so it had to be done. Just had a call to say its ready to be picked up. The temp gauge fault was done FOC under the warranty seing as the fault was a second appearance. Better to pay £100.92 than the original £380 they first quoted for both jobs.
