Took my car in for a new clutch, when the mechanic handed me the keys after ward, he then handed me the pilot bearing and said it wouldnt fit, just wondering if anyone else has run into this problem, and how they fixed it

Do you
have the same problem?

Well kind of important part I would have handed it back not paid till it was installed. Was this a BUBA shop?

He thinks something was replaced from another car that doesn't fit, he thinks the wrong flywheel is in there, it was in the shop in the first place cause I didnt have time to take it apart to replace the clutch, but I might have to anyway
