The front coil spring ( left side ) snapped the other day on my C3.
Luckily it happened when my car was still as it could have caused
serious damage to the car and passengers if it would have happened on
the move. The spring went down between the wheel and the body so the
wheel couldn't move at all. I was really suprised by this failure as my
car is only 3 years old and driven 38000 km. The dealer replaced the
broken spring but I'm having doubt's if that is enough and wanted your
opinion on the matter and if there are somebody who've had there C3 in
for the recall that was made regarding the suspension cups.
1. When replacing the spring, is it not normal to replace it on both
2. Has anybody seen the replacement cup that is mentioned in the recall
notice? Is it larger than the original one so the spring won't drop
down in case of a failure?
Recall notice I looked up on the AA website. The dealer where I live (
Iceland ) says he never saw this recall notice before.
kron ( email@example.com) gurgled happily, sounding much like they
were saying :
The UK semi-government body responsible is VOSA
is the C3 suspension spring recall.
From what I've seen on Berlingos, the recall fits a clamp on the suspension
strut to stop the spring escaping if (when) it breaks. Cit *really* dropped
the ball on this one, and have recalled C2, Berlingo, Picasso as well as
