It's amazing how many things there are that are free fixes/diagnostics. And dont think for a second that many a garage won't do the same, sometimes it just helps diagnose the issue, but other times when it's something like a fuse (which I'm counting as a 'free fix') that's a nice few quid in the old Xmas fund for no effort. Leave the car there for a couple of hours to make it look like it took some effort "yeah you had an issue on your squared grommet, but we re-sponged it, which is normally 100 but did it for 50, luv"

So worth trying the free fixes/diagnostics first.  :y
