About a week ago I heard a crack from the front and lots of creaking metallic sounds when I went over bumps. I thought a spring had gone but the dealer could'nt fix it at the time.

Anyway, had my car in for it's 4th service and MOT yesterday after I came back from my hols, told them that a spring had probably gone and they agreed to replace the front two under network q. Happy days........but no

Upon picking the car up, was told no springs had snapped. Apparently some part of the rear suspension had become detached and was simply clicked back into place by the mechanic.

So what part of the suspension would this be and what is the likely hood of it happening again?
