Part required - Sump plug washer for a Nissan Juke (13)

Googled Nissan garages local to my work.

Called the closest one (McHargs , South Street) and , waited 12 mins to speak to the parts guy , gave him the reg number and he confirmed that it was £1.30 and they had loads in stock.

Dispatched one of the security guards to pick a few up as i will be really tight for time after work today.

Security dude just called back to inform me that the garage was now a Mazda garage and not Nissan , that must be have been a hostile takeover as two hours ago the parts guy confirmed they have these washers based on the supplied NISSAN reg number.

Turns out that Nissan have not updated their dealership info but the taken the original phone number to the new address with is feckin miles away in the wrong direction.

Rant over - Kenny

Frustrating.
Could you measure the old and source one off eBay.

If you have trouble I might well have the right size in my box of copper washers.

You can buy mixed boxes of copper washers at Halfords for not much money....
