How long does it take to fit a washer ball

I have lost one of me balls ! Do I have to leave the car with the dealer to fix or can I wait while it is done ?

Also, where is your dealer stamp located in your log book ? If someone could scan the section where the stamp is then that would be great because I dont know where to look for it.

Takes about 1/2 hour as they have to remove the bumper.

My dealer stamp is in the service book at the front - are you talking about the supplying dealer stamp?

In the service book then at the start of the UK section

Yep the whole bumper has to come off! I stood and watched my dealer change mine though I had to scream and shout at him when he only loosened one side of the bumper and just bent it round to get access.

I made him take the whole thing off!!!

I will take a look when I get home, will have to get it stamped if there is nothing there.

Holy S**t ! I thought it was just a case of clipping the ball back in ! Why do these small warranty jobs have to be so bloody complicated that you have to take panels off ?

I think I will wait for the other one to go before I take it in then !

My Dealer took a whole day!
The Dealer has to replace the whole unit, not just the ball. This is listed as 2 hours or so im told.
My dealer did the ECU upgrade, replaced the windscreen trim which looked loose, washed & valeted the car at the same time - all at no cost. I was happy for them to have it all day for that.
