|General comments:||I am driving back to have the car checked but l need professional tips on how to present my case. I don't know much about cars so l need advice on what to do and how to do. Thanks for helping in advance|
|Problems:||I had both front and rear shock absorbers changed on a Mazda Demio 2001. Upon driving the car from the garage, there was an unusual sound from the rear. The mechanic said it were damaged bearings.|
That evening when driving to some distant work place l smelt rubber burning or oil like smell only to discover there was contact between my new shocks and the tyres.
I use size 14 tyres and upon calling the shocks dealer, he said l should change the rim. The problem is the old shocks never gave me that trouble. There is a difference in the gap between the metal where shock springs rest. The gap is smaller on new shocks. Were l sold wrong size or they weren't fixed properly? Are there shocks for size 13 and size 14 Tyres?
