    Default Rumble sort of sound from rear.

    Now that the engine is sorted, the car seems to have found a new problem.
    When I go over an uneven road surface (and lets face it - that is most road surfaces!), there is a rumble from the back wheels and suspension. When I go over speed humps, there is a slight creak from the back.
    Had a quick look underneath this morning, but cant see anything obviousloy broken - any ideas as to what it may be.
    Hopefully the warranty (whats left of it!) will cover it.

    I have heard stories that spring failures are not covered under warranty. Mine has done almost 49k miles. Is this going to be the case here?
    Are all the other bits covered?

    Take it to VX and ask for a FREE visual health check. Or pay the £40ish and get them to look at it with a bit more detail.

    I had this problem on my 1.8 signum after someone ran up my arse, took it to 2 garages who claimed there was nothing wrong with the springs ect, took it to a mates garage and lifted it up - snapped spring but near the botom so not easy to pot unless it was lifted up and suspension could relax

    Around here, the only Vx dealers are Lookers. Will take it to the bigger branch in Birkenhead and get them to take a look.
    If it is a broken spring, what cost am I looking at - Ive heard stories that they are not covered under warranty.

    I didnt buy a standard spring so dont know, I just bit the bullet and ordered a full set of spax loweing ones - 35/25 and for that I was £110, and a garage is going to charge me £100 to fit and re-align wheels as well.


    Edit ---- not sure if thats mates rates or no for fitting ect as the garage isnt sposed to install parts sourced by clients.
