Have just spoken to my wife who has found that the complete front end
of our 27,000 mile 2002 C3 1.4HDi has dropped to an alarming level. A
neighbour believes that either the shock absorbers have collapsed or
the front suspension has. She found a plastic 'doughnut' shaped piece
of rubber on the driveway. The recovery people are returning her and
the car home.
Feel a bit useless as I'm away until Tuesday, but has anyone
experienced anything similar to this? Have checked the groups and
there are problems reported with C3 rear suspension, but nothing for
As an idea as to how low the front of the car is, the recovery team
have had to call for a low loader as they can't move it into the
'specs' hydraulic ram on the back of their truck.
As the car has a 3 year warranty, would I be naive to expect the
repairs to be conducted under that or is this going to be a very
expensive New Year present?
Look forward to your thoughts
