    Default Springs making a noise like there broke :(`

    Had a problem crop up since the cold weather has happened upon us. Everytime I turn the wheel I hear this awful twang noise like the spring is moving, my worst thoughts were that one of the front springs had snapped

    Went round to Soulmans today and took both legs off the car and took them apart. Found both springs were ok which led a mystery of why was they making a noise? Turns out when I took the top mount off it feel apart. ahh that might be a problem...... So I cleaned up all 3 parts of it and put some grease substitue on it (dont ask lol) and put them back together. Did the other side too but while I found this one was better it was still dry as a nun's ***** (mods delete that bit if deemed to rude). The drop link had also seen better days too but ok for now.

    Reassembled all parts and drove home and not a noise was to be heard

    Also did a oil change and fit the new sump plug as the old one still had the 12mm socket on it (should be 13mm but rounded off) I battered onto it almost 10k miles ago.

    So a good job done with my able assistant Soulman (with one squashed finger, the spanner moved the wrong way )

    Big thanks Ian couldnt of done it without you.

    Also over xmas my wipers decided they didnt want to part so had to repair the wiper motor too (good how2 I followed on that)

    Just means I gotta clean the car on Saturday now for the meet AT LAKESIDE on SUNDAY 3RD
