I yelled at him to finally threaten him i am not paying until you cured the issue. And there we go :)
Notes this down. Yelling sometimes works :biggrin:


Yeah, most mechanic will jack up the wheels and use hand to rotate and confirm about the issue.
Compared to the power transmitted by the engine to the rear wheel, how much power can arm wiggling transmit? Wiggling test only good for badly worn arms; generally stuff which driver should be able to feel at low speeds. Let's say if rear wheel bearing is making a bit of noise. I dont think wriggling is able to detect that; not unless your bearing is about to fall into pieces

Provided if you are close friend to your mechanic, otherwise he can make your ride even worse

For car guys we will need to have one of few buddies like this, for myself i stick to one mechanic friend because i have never seen any mechanic been so attentive and detail to car repairs, i can say all my cars under his care can run at high speed, engine and drivetrain feels like new or better under his recommendation and maintenance. Only draw back is his charges aren't cheap, quality guarantee.

Thanks,
Ken
