It's not you that needs to get hold of the appropriate parts (rockers???), but the garage.
If you source the parts yourself, and the problem persists or reappears, then they can always blame the fault on parts that they haven't supplied.
No, they should be returning the car to working condition, and providing all parts and labour themselves. That way, the quality of the job is totally down to them, with no wriggle room.

Alternatively, they may want to provide you with a cash offer for the car, as is, so you can move on. Room for negotiation there, perhaps.

And theres the get out of jail card, the response will be We cant get the parts anymore...

Annoyingly Id have them as ive a few 2.1td heads about, so ID be able to supply the rocker finger, but unfortunally with my current state Im not in a position to goto the store or container to retrive the rocker fingers...

I can talk you step by step on dooing the repair as my brain still works well, but the rest of me isnt so good..

The sticking point is going to be who's decision was it to re-use the worn belt?
If it was the garages then the liability falls on them, if Woodie asked for it to be re-used, then it is his liability.
