So, I just got my car back from the shop after the bearing fiasco.  Bearing and
hub replaced, and I also had them do the timing belt/water pump/idler.  I got
the car back last night.  This am, while shoveling the 10" of snow we got, I
noticed a lot of green snow under the car.  Further investigation revealed a
broken upper radiator neck.  Arrrrgh.

So, is this a repairable item?  It broke off about 3/4" from the end, just the
little raised bit.  I got it JBWelding right now, but i have no idea if that
will hold. I plan on just trying to reattach, moving the hose clamp to the
remaining bit of the neck. Any thoughts?

The next question is, you guys think this is just a coincidence that it was just
in the shop?  It was fine before that.  Someone leaned on it wrong?  Think i
have any chance of getting them to repair it?
