I'd just like to say 'Thank You' to all of you that have took the time to look or comment on my blog.

I haven't visited it in a long time as my issue was done & dusted a while back.

I'm saddened to see that EH are still doing there worst to rip-off people.

The more you comment on this blog, the more chance there is other people will see it & steer clear of them or go into a deal with them with their eyes wide open.

If one more person stays clear of them because of this blog then it's one more person saving themselves from disappointment, upset & loss.

It took a while but I'm pleased to report that perseverance pays off.

Late October 2011 a settlement was reached which I'm glad to say did not leave me out of pocket... In fact I had a few pennies left over & celebrated with a bottle of champagne.

I speak to many people in a day & for sure those people, family & friends will be steering clear of Evans Halshaw which on top of their solicitors fees & my pay-out will have an impact on their business even though it may be small for me it's a victory.

What tools & equipment are required to change Front Diff Axle?

Can anyone please list for me the tools and equipment needed to change the Front Differential Axle?
Are there any specialist tools required other than what a mechanic would usually have?

Friday, 11 February 2011


266 days after first reporting the problem with the 4-wheel drive and 147 days after suggesting that the removed axle is inspected they now want a Mechanical Engineer to take a look at it and write a report!

This has been requested 21 days after they have received my claim from the Courts and 7 days prior to the time they are to present their defence.

So, they drag their feet to the last minute to ask for the extension!

What they neglected to inform me of was that not only does the Mechanical Engineer need to see the parts, but also needs to see and drive the vehicle and see documentation!



Not a surprise....
They have requested an extension and have left it once again to the last minute to ask for it and then apply what I feel are 'bullying tactics':
  • 28 hours and 20 minutes given to agree to extension when they have already had 3 weeks!
  • Threat to Apply an Order with the Courts to make me pay for the Application for extension of the deadline if I do not agree or fail to agree within the time limit they have set!

Claim issued against Bramell Quicks t/a Evans Halshaw

I have now issued my claim to which they are 'defending all claims'.
They now have until 17th February 2011 to present their defence.
I expected them to do so, which has not intimidated me at all.
As they did not present their intention of defence until the last day, I put my money on them leaving it until the last day (17th Feb) to present their defence.
This no doubt is another tactic, prolonging the situation!!!

Contact Pendragon's Legal Team

I've just sent an email to Mr Richard Maloney who is part of Pendragon's Legal team whom I have been communicating with, in regards to this matter.

He's currently on annual leave, but his automated email has been kind enough to give me a contact number for Pendragon.

As this number is hard to find, I would like to share it with you. I haven't called it, but it may be worth a go if you want to get in direct contact with the Legal Team.

Pendragon: 01623 725200
