    Hi/
    If any of you need a recon starter or a alternator you would do well and avoid West Lancs Auto electrics.
    They are good at supplying you one but if you have to return it under warrantee it's another matter.
    My replacement failed after 4months and in the end I had to take county Court action because they would not replace it under the 18month warrantee.

    Hello Horse!? sad to know that your replacement didn't work out and shame that companies don't honour their own warranties.
    Why did they refuse to replace their part? a bit more detail will be useful

    I'm guessing that Horse is going round a few car forums posting this complaint. I don't think he'll be back.

    This horse is roaming not bolting in reply to one out there, in reply to why their excuse was its my cars fault, and yes it was a Honda a 2003 which l had from new, starter motor lasted 12years then replacement lasted 4months the one I bought elsewhere because west lances would not honor warrantee is still working OK nothing wrong with car (accord) . In reply to another remark have you got a problem with warning people about bad comps?

    hey Horse if you spend a bit more time here on HK you will realize we are a friendly bunch.. due to the lack of info we were only speculating for fun what is going on :Smile: meant no harm.
    so what became of your small claim case?

    Nothing wrong with warning people, although we are only getting one side of the story... Did you win the CC action? More detail would have made us more welcoming and less cynical!

    Welcome to Honda Karma.

    I did win my case.
    Although I don't comment much on this site I do visit it a lot and enjoy the banter I read between yourselves

    I've thought of taking County Court action a couple of times but never needed to in the end. Good on you for going ahead and winning :Wink:

    feel free to join in banter too LOL

    but if you turn up at a car-meet and someone asks you to do a Sun Dance, be wary if there's a large teepee nearby
