    • If the judge agrees that they are responsible for the consequences of the poor fitting – then yes, the judge will most likely award the entire amount of £480. There are two things to persuade the judge about: that the gasket blew as a result of the poor installation of the turbo that the cost of the work replacing the gasket was not excessive – in other words it was a reasonable cost. Of course we will support you in that we will give you advice and help you prepare – but of course at the end of the day the case is yours to win or lose. You know that we are thoroughly on your side. As I have said already, it will really help a great deal if you can get some garage mechanics to agree that the poorly fitted turbo would be likely to result in a blown gasket. If you have got the evidence – the old gasket and the bolts – then that will be very helpful. But you will have to do a good statement – and do some pictures. The way to do this statement would be to describe what has happened and then when you come to the turbo, for instance, you put in brackets (picture number one). When you come to the bolts, then you do the same thing (picture number two). Et cetera. That way you have a concise readable statement which references the pictures which should be stapled to the back of it. Also of course you will produce the bolts and the gasket in court. I think what will also be very helpful is the fact that the garage attempted to avoid you and to refuse to deal with you. I don't think the judge will be very impressed by that and this will assist you a great deal.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Part is covered but the garage are trying to change me £ 57 for the privelage of telling me what I told them.
