hi as anyone had a prob with a front susp strut failing on a xantia 1.9 d m
mine failed just after doing a left turn thankfully not at speed, resulting
in the strut forcing up the bonnet, which thankfully held the strut in place
other wise i am sure the car would have been wrecked, no fluid was lost so
most of the car stayed up, enabling it to been dragged up a low loader and
Maybe your roads are not as bas as ours (I live in south america) But I
am a member of the local Citroen Clubs and we've all been warned to replace
the upper mountings and have personally witnessed 2 failures in the
last two years...
If you look closely you can see the only this holding the struts is rubber,
and that it flexes quite a bit raising and lowering the car...
