And now .....
« on: 20 April 2018, 11:50:48 »

SWMBO's Citroen snapped a rear spring this morning on the way to work. Fortunately she'd only just set off & was only going slow. Daughter's car Mon & Tues  ..... now SWMBO's 🤔

Indeed. The surface where it eventually failed has had sizeable ridges in it for years. Still, a cheap repair as things go .... 50 for the springs & a mate is fitting them tomorrow for 30. Airbags at the back of my R Class were 700 fitted ☹

The design of the spring and weight of the car are more likely to be the cause

That's what I thought when I ordered springs from that shit outfit Euroshiteparts. 3 weeks and *STILL* waiting for one, meanwhile the car is off the road.

Wow, yeah can see that snapped  ;D

Luckily I've got spare pair in the garage for when one of the 3.2's goes, surpassingly they are lasting well.
