The UK’s recovery companies do a good job, often in terrible weather conditions and when it is pitch black.
Taking all of that into account, a complete loss of drive would normally be the clutch, which is what the rescue company diagnosed on this occasion.
Indeed, the customer was also certain it was the clutch and that is what we quoted for.
However, pushing the car on to the ramp quickly showed us otherwise and a new driveshaft was duly ordered. Funnily enough, we had seen a broken driveshaft on a van the previous month – it seems they come along like buses!
Remember a poorly maintained vehicle is a breakdown waiting to happen. Come to the experts at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic.
