    Default broken spring

    i have had my vectra from new without any problems. now my second mot is due the problems have now surfaced. first was a front drivers side broken spring and also exhaust emmisions light has came on which after a couple of days went off again. i had this checked at the vauxhall dealership nothing showed up so im wandering if this has happened to other members?. as the spring is concerned i thought that was an isolated case till i found these forums. so i contacted vauxhall direct which i can say they were most helpful as always. they said that they would pay 30% towards the replacement of all the four springs which i would still have to pay out £369 which to me is a total rip off so i had both front replaced which cost me including labour less than half by a freind who is a mechanic

    yep..they are quite common.....it's often cheaper to fit lowering springs ( which are stronger) than fit standard ones again..

    Default broken spring

    thanks for the replys. i sspoke to the mechanic that replaced the springs apparantly he told me that its not only vectras that break he has replaced them on most manufacturers. 2 weeks ago he had to replace some on a lexus which was just over 3 years old. what he did say which has made me think is that since they have installed sleeping policemen he has noticed that there are more vehicles being damaged exp.(springs). so i can see were he is comming from. i have even noticed the amount of pot holes so i guess that also doesnt help.
