first timer. hope someone can help.

1 month ago I brought my car in for service. Service was done but with problems- overfilled oil, warning lamp returned after few days etc.

brought it back and they redid oil, checked cat converter and said all ok.

warning lamp back on.

but now my timing belt is after going while i was driving.

there was no mention of the timing belt when i brought my car in.

102,000 miles on clock.

surely they should have told me if it needed replacing.

only happened today so have til tomorrow before i talk to garage.

devastated. who has 000's to fix job like that. raging cause would have got it done if i knew.

Bummer if it is broken, I keep reading these sort of stories about the dealers which is a shame because I would like to think they would be the best people to look after the car. I've had it happen on a toyota too so they're not immune. If you're in need of assistance regarding the head though I hear a guy called franko6 on the tdiclub is supposed to be the go to guy for that sort of thing. Anyway welcometomyturbodies
