Hi all just seeking opinion.
So I had my car service last and again yesterday. But the driver side rear tyre bolt was cross threaded which could happen when it is over tightened, so I had the leave the car over night & cost $360 for one set. The other 3 was fine.
After thinking awhile, I remembered in March 2021. I had a screw lodged in the driver side rear tyre and I had it removed and fixed at a tyre shop. So I'm wondering if the bolts were damaged here?
Update: I'm not well versed with car parts but thank you all for your opinions. The service centre could not insert the bolt back in & had to replace all 5 bolts for Hyundai ix35 hence the quote. It's a machine afterall that can breakdown but just thought that it could have possibly be due to poor finishing at the last work. Just frustrating to know the due cost was due to probable negligence.
Like someone mentioned, Highly doubtful that the last workshop tyre fix would own up to the fault.
- Note 6 mths ago I had a screw stuck to the driver side rear tyre and had it removed & sealed the puncture which only cost $25. Just seems too much of a coincidence to be the same tyre affect now.
Thank you all again.
