Question posted in the Insurance Law category relating to Gauteng

I took my vehicle to a mechanic almost a year ago for repairs.  He quote me R25000.00 I had a witness with me.  Now after all this time he phoned me to say that my vehicle is ready but he wants another R12000-00 for labour before he will release my vehicle.  He threatened me also that he will sell my vehicle if I do not pay the R12000-00.  What are my options
