The little things that can be so annoying. Just had a timing belt replaced on a non-Saab, ( obviously ) and as in the past with other cars including my Saabs, they fail to replace the snap pin fasteners for the plastic shields under the car. How hard is this? How can they not have a supply of these PITA things on hand at all times, for when they inevitably break. What other non essential fasteners are they neglecting? I know they were intact because I was under there recently for an oil change. Rigged them up with zip ties. Girlfriend just purchased an, expensive to me, certified pre owned car. She wanted to swap out the license plate decorative brackets. I watched the salesman put them on at the dealership, from a distance. I took them off for her and the front bolts are tap screws with coarse thread, the rear's are short fine thread bolts. Again, how can you not have a huge supply of the proper bolts on hand ? Did the coarse thread ruin the proper fine threaded holes? Unacceptable to me. Ok rant over.
