Anybody got a PDF of that TSB (C 40-01-01 I think ) for 98/99 Suspension Control arm repairs? I went to the dealer today and he's quoting me $800.00 smackaroos to have my front end suspension fixed. And thats after they finally find something was wrong.
Especially when the previous 5 visits i distinctly told them about the clunking noise i keep hearing when i park the car or do U-turns and couldnt find anything.
I know it was posted on Scotts' vw forum but i can't seem to find it. Please help if you can. TIA
