    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default MOT now passed

    My car failed recently due to a broken front spring.

    I have now replaced the offending item at a cost for new part of £33 inc postage.

    happy with the part, car sits right, and I now have a full ticket.


    I have also posted a question about other peoples spring failures, trying to get some common cause / area / etc between failures, with a pic of the broken off piece. Here

    I have also added to the 'how to' discussion with a top tip for getting the difficult top nut off.... Here

    Touch wood I've never had one break on any of my cars in nearly 50yrs of driving so I've obviously been very lucky.
    Sounds like you did a very job there 'Ste' and I'm sure a good saving on what a garage would have charged, £33 for a spring replacement can't be bad... well done!.
