My ex partner is driving around in my car. I owe 16,000 finance…

Customer Question
My ex partner is driving...
My ex partner is driving around in my car. I owe £16,000 finance on it which has to be repaid by the end of this month. Despite asking him for it back he is keeping hold of it. The garage allowed the car (unknown to me) to be put into his name despite the fact I was the one financing it.
He wants to sell it and pocket the money leaving me £16000 in debt.
How can I get the car back?
