Hey Can I had lube mobile come out a week ago and he was here for 2 min and said to me he doesn't do that and gave me a number for a specialist that does it so I rang him and he's based down at Glenmore Park and said it's not worth his while to travel up here .. I reckon myself the bloke from lube mobile was in a hurry to get home

when u ring them can you ask if there qualified to do it etc .. thanks Cam
Expert:  camerontech replied 1 year ago.

I would give them an email an ask for them to send a tech that has heli coil experience and not send one that hasnt done one before. Im actually suprised that the guy didnt do them as It is a pretty basic and common repair and shouldnt require a "specialist"..
have you thought about trying to do it yourself? there are quite a few videos instructing how to do them.
