My husband used garage once on Potaardestraat (junction with Hertogenstraat) just inside Wezembeek. It's an independent garage, has an Elf sign on it.
I've started explaining to service providers I am not an EU/NATO official or on an expat package, I pay my own rent, I earn a Belgian salary and I don't appreciate being ripped off. I find it works quite well, because it makes it clear I'll walk away if I feel I'm being overcharged. Try the same tactic and see what the quote is.s
Can any1 recommend a garage near Tervuren/Krainaam/Stokkel/Wesembeek-Oppem. I have a UK 2007 Vauxhall Zafira which has an oil leak. Car drives OK but tends to leave an unsightly oily patch outside my own and friends drives . I need to get it done because I have been told the oil can get the timing belt to 'drop' which would be a real baaad move! I think the camshaft seals need to replaced but I have been told that almost the whole engine needs to come out to get to the seals.
So can someone recommend somewhere cheap? I don't care if it is done by someone part-time, or how long it takes as I don't need the car during the week.
