    Default Suspected broken spring.

    Hi Guys, havnt posted on here for a while so hello and Merry xmas to all the new and existing members! Have been uber busy at work.

    Anyways i think ive got a broken spring on my 06 Sri 1.8 thats done 44,770 miles.

    When im going slowly and turning the wheel, or turning the wheel while stopped, i can hear a knocking noice from the nearside which im pretty sure sounds like the spring, cant think what else it would be.

    What i need to know is, will this be covered on warrenty, or do i have to pay our for the repair? and if so, how much might it cost?

    Any help appriciated.

    Matt.

    More than likely wear and tear item. I paid £89:00 plus about £60:00 labour to have both front springs replacedin August

    Mine just did exactly the same!

    Went to move off the drive after being parked there for two days, and there was a strange knocking sound from the passenger wheel. The spring had snapped...

    My dad managed to fix it, and is also replacing the drivers side spring shortly - Both springs cost £80 in total.

    that was my plan too
    But the dealers going to change it under Network Q warranty

    just hope they fit the right spring elite, but with lowered sports springs & 18" wheel package on

    That sounds re-assuring. If its broken theres a good chance it will be sorted under warrenty?

    Thanks again.
