    Hi All

    Anyone know of a good and reasonable garage in Oxford (or nearby)?

    I've got a 1996 328i Sport, so not looking to spend shedloads.

    Thanks

    Hi there

    According to MOT list:

    Offside rear seat belt not retracting mechanism defective.

    Offside rear brake binding.

    Nearside headlamp not in good working order adversely affecting beam image.
    ( – probably the bulb)

    Any idea how much that'll cost?
    Where are you based?

    Thanks

    Right. I would contact a breaker and get a rear setbelt as they are common for jamming. Its most probably a rear caliper sticking, but would want to see the car first.....
    Im based in Wheatley just outside of Oxford. where are you based?

    Other garages thought that the seatbelt mechanism could just be repaired.
    To be honest, I don't think I'll be able to bring the car to you in Wheatley anyway, as I wouldn't be able to get back to Oxford, or then back to you.
    Thanks for your help, though.
