    Default Heard a BANG from rear of car?

    Guy's,

    I were driving back from work today down a side road, not doing more than 25mph, suddenly heard a loud bang. Sounded as though someone had hit the car, but nothing was around.

    There were no pot holes in the road, nor was there any debris or anything, so the sound deffo came from my car.

    It sounded as though it came from the rear of the car, more so the drivers side.

    I have done a visual inspection and all seems to be in order and nothing seems to have dropped off, well not that I can see anyway.

    What could this have been.....any idea's or am I p155ing in the wind by even guessing?

    And for those that dont know and if it matters, the car is a Vec-B 2.2 SRI DTI 130.

    Thanks.

    follow the spring with your fingers all the way to the top and all the way to the bottom. If there feels like an "unfinished" end, its more than likely to be snapped.

    Clambering under a car like that it's usually better to use feel rather than sight. Just a helpful tip

    with out a doubt spring failure the only thing capable of making a loud band and having a non detremental effect on handling
