If this hasn't been sorted yet I would say the best approach is if you can get someone with an account to take it on the van and see what they say. I've bought stuff off Ebay which turned out to be a crock and they've sorted it but I suspect it depends a bit on the dealers attitude toward the customer.

Flag down a snap on van and get a replacement, they've a lifetime guarantee.

I did try speaking to a snap on van man that was outside the garage I used. He seemed distinctly uninterested in helping me and referred me to head office. It's still sat in the box under my bench waiting to be sorted.

I've bought a Halfords torque wrench for my own replacement. A very nice, quality tool.
