Thought the springs on my Vectra would have broken before the wife's Clio!!; took hers in for service today and was reported that O/S/F spring had snapped , anyway got two new springs this afternoon and fitted those on and what I noticed with this Clio was that the strut spring base has a huge rubber washer type affair, just makes you wonder why Vx couldn't have done this instead of this retrofit spring sleeve rubbish , then I think we wouldn't have the issues we get with this area on our Vectras.
Cheers Pete
