To be fair to you midge I had a similar situation. I bought brake discs advertised for a 180 and they were for the 120 (smaller diameter).
I was p****d as I had paid a garage to fit them and they still charged me 30 mins labour £25. The ebay seller offered me a refund including P&P for the discs if sent them back.
I was out £25 but that was my fault. If I had checked the side of the box before supplying the discs to the garage I would of seen the code and could of confirmed myself if it was the correct parts.
Likewise, you took responsibility to provide the correct parts to the garage and either didnt or couldnt confirm that the parts supplied were fit for purpose. Yet having supplied the parts the onus is legally and morally on you. If the mr silicone suppled the parts directly to the garage then they have the responsibility to provide the correct part and it would be the garages responsibility to check the parts are correct before fitting.
In becoming the middle man, it becomes soley your responsibility to ensure that the parts you supply to the garage are correct. mrsilicone has no connection and no involment with the garage. Yes the mistake of supplying the wrong part was mrsilicones fault and he has rectified this by offering you a Full refund including your postage. He is clear.
The mistake of supplying the wrong part to the garage is your mistake and the garage have charged you labour as they should.
Its a simple process and you have only been stung be your own negligance in ensuring that the parts supplied were correct.
Furthermore with Mrsilicone acting beyond the normal refund process by also giving you postage its probably not the best idea to slander him and his business on a public forum. This - being that its legally unjustified - could see you get in trouble.
Im glad by the last line of your previous post you seem to have accepted that YOU are in fact in the wrong.
