I brought my car in to have the front struts replaced. Upon receiving my vehicle back and driving home I began to notice a grinding sound that got increasingly worse as I drove. After bringing to car back the next day to have it inspected I was told that it was the drive-shaft bearing that was most likely damaged during the installation of the front struts with pressure on the drive-shaft with being on the lift too. Now after I have brought my car to this same shop for rear struts replacement /intermediate shaft/Rear brakes and rotors / and brand new tires and wheels plus oil change and basic maintenance less than a month ago and now for the front struts and a brand new air conditioner compressor and condenser plus a bunch of other charges like; alignment and etc. I am really frustrated that I am supposed to pay the $500 it will cost for the new drive-shaft bearing /or the complete drive-shaft section as I was told it was easier and cheaper to replace the part as a whole instead of just the bearing. Since they were in possession of the car when the bearing was damaged and when I dropped my car off there was no sounds or noises and I was told that it is somewhat common that when replacing the front struts it happens occasionally should they be liable or responsible for the costs of the repairs or am I somehow on the hook for the $500.
have the same problem?
