Just got a call from the mechanic. Turns out the problem on the car wasn’t half as major as I had expected it to be (that’s why I’m no mechanic – but I would make a good rip-off artist). Apparently the steering pump fluid reservoir had been damaged and some acid had caused some damage on some seals, but other than that the pump is perfectly fine :) And my rear wheels don’t seem to have any problem, so thats another load off my mind (turns out the tire might be sitting a little wrong, so Ill have that sorted out then).
Ah, but the best part is the price for getting everything sorted out: A measly R350. Leaving me with tons of celebratory money for muffins, choccies and the like!
