Cannot travel to work in car . When turning the wheel and backing up their is a popping noise.

Desired Settlement: My money back or fix the problem. $191.40 (cash) + $131.40 (CC) Missing sub frame bolts + broken windshield + catalytic converter. Fix steering rack problem. $23 x 3 oil cans.

Business Response:

This is a response to the above numbered complaint. When the customer first brought her car to us for a power steering leak, she stated that she had an unlicensed mechanic IE. (***** **** ) do the first power steering gear box replacement with a used unit that the Customer provided. When the car was put up on a lift it was noted that the return line from the box was leaking. The hose leaked so bad that fluid was everywhere. The customer authorized the repair. The replacement of the return hose was completed. Also the technician noted that possibly, there was bolts missing from the sub-frame. And, we recommended an alignment shop or *** dealership to check the front end and sub-frame.

The customer left here she went to an alignment shop. The alignment shop told the customer that the steering gear box was still leaking. The customer returned to us where we confirmed the other shops findings. So, then the customer asked if we would help get a warranty from the used part supplier. They agreed to warranty it. We quoted a price to install the second used power steering gear box that the customer supplied. We installed the used steering box.  We, also recommended to take the car to a car wash to get off as much fluid as possible.

She went back to the alignment shop where they told her that we damaged a tie rod end boot and that the center link was on backwards preventing a proper alignment. We did not remove the center link during our repairs. We attempted to put the center link on correctly as the alignment shop stated. We found that the center link can only go on one way. In attempting  this our tool damaged the seals on the center link, at that point we purchased and Installed a new tie rod end and center link at no charge to the customer.

The windshield had a rock chip where the crack began. We did perform a road test after we installed the steering  box, the road test was once around the block at the speed limit. The windshield was cracked when it first arrived at our shop.

The catalytic converter is an item we had nothing to do with.

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
