The contract is with the garage or the mechanic if he is not employed by them not the manufacturer.
The garage/mechanic can then chase the supplier if they claim the part is faulty.
You may get your car back only to find that the garage has caused a new problem.
Generally, the garage would be responsible for any additional fault or damage, ***but it’s up to you to prove that this happened while the car was in the garage's care.***
It’s possible that the new fault could be completely coincidental and unrelated to the original fault or repair." [emphasis added]
