total repairs approved by insurance adjuster amounted to about P150,000 of which i personally paid the repair shop my share for betterment totalling to P49,000.
the biggest part of the bill is for the replacement of the computer box (P51,000) which the repair shop failed to replace despite my repeated demands. i was able to eventually sell the car pero at a very disadvantaged price because of the computer box issue.
on feb 12, 2011, i went to the shop to follow-up on the replacement computer box. the owner said wala pa rin. instead of arguing with him, i instead simply asked for a refund of the amount i paid as my 33% share supposedly for the box (never mind that he also got paid by the insurance company for it) since they weren't able to replace it anyway.
the owner refused. i want to sue him for being dishonest and for taking money from me and the insurance company without performing the repairs and delivering the service he was obligated to.
can i do that? what are the steps i need to make? tks.
