Rover Breakers LTD in HULL, MONEY and TIMER WASTER!! STAY AWAY!

Totally amateurs!
They don't know anything about MG-ROVER!

I ordered (with writen list, not orally):
-MGF mk1 oil temp sensor
-MGF mk1 wiper motor
-ROVER 75 1.8 16V auto gearbox PR010 VERY RARE AND EXPENSIVE

I received:
-3X MG TF... water temp sensors
-MG TF wiper motor
-Rover 75 1.8T auto gearbox PR014 NOT SO RARE SO NOT EXPENSIVE

After my complaints:
- they don't have more sensors
- they sent me an MGF mk1 wiper but... faulty
- They told me that 1.8T gbox fits to 1.8 16v car. I did it and fits indeed BUT IT WAS FAULTY AS WEL!!!

When i told them that the gbox (and all other parts) are faulty they accept to send it back for full refund.
In the midtime the 45 days of the Paypal protection lost in the fitment and delivery time as i am in Greece.

After so much time wasted and hassle they refused to refund for the parts. They just offered me a silly amount!

Needless to say that after the fautly gbox i couldn't find the manager on the phone...

TOTAL MONEY LOST 575
455 for the parts
120 gbox delivery back to UK

STAY AWAY!!

You are entitled to it all back and probably reasonable expenses. You'll just have to fight it in the correct way I suspect.

Sorry about Kostas's loss.

Frankly, I had bad experiences with UK breakers. In my case, they sent me a very rusty, scratched, dirty and badly packaged oil sump, way different that the auction photo, for a pretty sum of money.

My feeling is that a lot of people act with impunity when there is a lot of physical distance with the interlocutor.

Although we must add, not all breakers are dodgey or scammers.

What is the correct way mate apart from Paypal protection?

Of course!
For eg "mgrover_autoparts" on Ebay is more than highly recommended!

I do not know the correct way, but I am sure someone with consumer law knowledge will be able to tell you your rights and ways to go about it.

I had a problem with them also they don't know the difference between solid and rubber subframe mounts. I return the wrongly supplied part and had to send threats to get my money back. Lost the postage though. Stay away from them. 'MG breakers Hull'.

I am very sure that they have NO IDEA about solid and rubber mounts...
They don't even know about MGF MK1 and MK2!

Heard bad stories about them before! Had the pleasure of looking round there yard a couple of times! Was after a bumper and they tried to sell me a scratched one saying it would polish out! When I asked the fella to get me one down from the top of some racking to look at he through it to the ground badly scratching that one aswell!

I'm confused, what are the Pro10 and Pro14 codes you refer too?

Afaik the 75 autos all use the same Jatco Auto box so it will fit any auto 75. I also thought the Jatco was only used on the 75.

Of course I could be completely wrong.

As for the breakers it does seem they are being unreasonable.

Are you fitting the gearbox to a 75 or trying to fit it an MGF?

The boxes have different ratios. They may well fit and work, but probably won't work very well.
