I usually do most of my own work on my own vehicles,but don't fancy removing dash parts to get at the front shock top bolts, just had the van in a large motorhome repair workshop just 2 miles away from my home and they have just phoned me after a few hours of having the vehicle admitting that they can't do the job because of the dash removal is too big of a job for them... I'm not sure if the dash has to be removed..
So my question is, is there anywhere you may know in the Bolton area that can do this job?
Or anywhere who specialise in Fiat apart from the company itself? It looks like this may turn out quite expensive....thanks..

I had my nearside top mounting replaced by Fiat main agent for £360 They had to remove the glovebox and some other pieces but the young technician who did it said it wasn't too bad a job. My A class is the same as yours.. I imagine if you need both sides doing the offside will be little more difficult but if they remove the drivers seat they should be able to get access. I would recommend you speak with a Fiat Agent and show them the job. Is there a particular a reason you need to get this done?

It might be worth you having a word with Mick at SAP they do them on a regular basis.

Thanks..and who, where is this?
Highly rated but in Doncaster, company is S.A.P, they fitted my E&P levelling jacks along with loads on here, top bloke and after sales is superb. Worth the travel as for me it is over 200 miles away.
