Seams a bit of an odd figure £555 do ytou have a break down of that - ie parts and labour ? if so are they robbing you for parts labour or both ?

Breaks are easy ,dunno about CV joint never done one on a ZS but easy enough on a ford escort

I think the CV's were about £250 for the pair?

it is a lot of money.

I rang another garage for another quote, but they have not back to me yet.

You don't say if it was a main dealer or OE parts.

Outer CV joints are about £120 each for OE and about £45 from a motorfactors.

Similar price difference with disks, pads etc.

how old is the car? CV joints already? :err:
Reluctor rings most probably rather that CV's themselves. Don't come seperately though.

We just had pretty much the same thing mate... Reluctor rings were gone, so 2 new CV joints. Plus, the OSF front caliper had seized so it was a reconditioned one as replacement... and new discs/pads as the seized caliper at warped the disc.

51 plate also... painful. And I don't think you can get 3rd party CV Joints for a 180 (think they differ from the 120).. so it was full price. Took the opportunity to upgrade the discs to drilled/grooved tho' ;)
