circlip cost me 1869.73$

Recommended Posts

i put a new piston in my 06 250f and the circlip fell out while it was running. It scored the cylinder, bent the cranck, bent two valves, and obviously the piston is destroyed. took it to the shop and quoted 700 labor and 1000 parts. this sucks a 25 cent circlip cost me 1800 dollars crazy

What sort of circlip was it? Wire or normal?

You must not have put it in properly for it to come out! Worth triple checking they are.

And isnt 1000 plus 700 = 1700? 👍

it was a normal one that held the piston on. i double checked it but i guess i still had it in the wrong slot. i got fork seals done too, thats the other $169

you got lucky!

had it done all of that on the face of a big jump, you could have added a hospital bill to the mix.

following the instructions are semi-important.
