JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a BMW. The BMW Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes I'm a mechanic but not BMW specialist
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm just trying to work out if that little solid dowel pin belongs somewhere else
JA: Is there anything else important you think the BMW Mechanic should know about your BMW?
Customer: That it was all fine just before I changed the bearing
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the BMW Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
