Thanks Clan. As it happens I did take it to Bridgend Volvo specialists the first time around and they replaced the pedal. Hey ho eh?

Any idea how much I'd be looking at to have the work done? I've just spent 270 on it for the unnecessary fix. The car's not worth more than a grand if it was in good working order. If it's not complicated I could perhaps try a non volvo garage again(!) to save money.

If it was you, would you ask the most recent garage to perhaps do a little work for free or at a reduced rate? I mean, were they at fault or am I grasping at straws here?

Much appreciated btw
