Graham was outside for over 3 hours trying to fit side steps to the car.( 2017 X Trail )

He's back in the house and the steps are back in the shed. No matter which way he placed the brackets the dam things don't want to fit. They were tried every way possible. He's drawn the conclusion they've sent the wrong steps.

He's mailed the company.... in slovackia, they're English is as bad as our Slovakian so trying to make some sense out of this will be as frustrating as trying to fit the things.

Don't know why I'm posting this.... yes I do I feel like moaning.

Tiff in a sulk

I know just how you feel Tiff.

I won a £2000 audio visual amplifier in a promotional competition for a British company called Arcam ( those Hi-Fi fans amongst you will know who they are) and they would contact my nearest dealer to arrange installation because it comes with a very sophisticated software programme that measures room acoustics and sets the amp to give the perfect sound for that room.

I have never won anything of any value apart from the odd £2.60 on the lottery and an egg 'n' spoon race when I was 6 years old so got really excited.

After the dealers initial call I have had to keep calling them back to get a date arranged and finally got it set for Today at 9.30 am. You know how you get that feeling when dealing with someone that their only paying you lip service. Well I put the phone down feeling just that, but thought I would give them the benefit of the doubt and started to feel like a child on Christmas Eve.

Surprise surprise got a phone call at 9.15 this morning, they cant make it today coz his car had broken down (I recognise that smell)Angry Had to rearrange for next Friday. If they crash that one out I shall contact Arcam and let them know. Now feeling very disappointed. Cry
If it aint broke make it go faster.

I know..... just think you guys are having a shocking time, and I'm moaning because the bars aren't right

Anyway I called my BIL. He's a mechanic, ace welder, and likes a challenge.

Going to take the car and steps and he's going to alter and weld the brackets. So short ass here will have her stairs back

Not very helpful, but you should have bought OEM side steps.
