Hi, i've just found the o/s/r coil is broken on my '03 KA. I normally service and repair my own cars but have never changed suspension parts. Can anyone say, is it possible to do myself or should i take it to my local garage? Last year the same problem occoured on the o/s/f and it cost quite a lot at my local garage, which is not a ford dealership. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Regards, V.

Last time I replaced one (on a Mk4 Fiesta) it was quite cheap :huh:

never done a spring on a ka but if your technically minded you shouldnt have any issues.

the rear springs on the focus are a little tricky to remove, a little aid from a spring compressor and they pop out.

it's an easy one to do on a ka
you should be able to diy & it's a cheap part
you will need to makup a tool to compress the spring
from what i can remember
look on google pics for a diagram of one or buy on off the site below

look here m8 for parts

www.buypartsby.co.uk

if it's not listed ( the spring) then phone them as they dont list all products they stock

it is also recommended to replace springs in pairs

the ka is easy if you have a haynes manual it shouldnt be more at a garage than 160 quid to have both springs replaced and yes ide replace in pairs as the other one wont be far behind thats for sure saves you doing the job twice and spings are cheap
