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?
