Thing is this, y'all know how fussy I am about my Cars, and the same is true when I do a job for a customer ...............
So, I simply could not live with having a function that no longer works, (Adjustable Damping)
Further to that, i have seen many posts on here that suggest Arnott re mans quailty control can at times be somewhat lacking, so although they promptly rectify the matter by sending one or 2 replacements out in short order, I am not the most patient person when it comes to having to do the same job twice due to someone elses, (or my own), fault !!
's experience I had to do it a 3rd time in short order I would be chucking hammers around and swearing, which is really no good for anyone
It would appear
to me that due to most faults with Arnotts being Damper related, it means the Arnott "Re Mans" just get cleaned up, painted and new Airbags and Dust Covers etc, rather than the Damper Part being overhauled at the same time !! Either that or they are not testing them properly after rebuild ................
If this is true, and not just my educated guess
, this means really they are just repaired units
, not re-mans !!
I never have an MB Reman back for damping issues, and with very close inspection one cannot tell the difference between New MB Parts and Reman MB Parts !!
Being in business for many years in the UK has made me a naturally suspicious individual, and, to that end I often wonder if MB just have 2 tiers of pricing for the same "Brand New" Part, if you ask for reman you get hefty discount, if you don't you "pays the piper"
