I spoke with the mechanic today & he agreed to source the correct lower arm.  The car is going in Friday to get sorted, I'll report back with this debacle is hopefully done & dusted!

ECP don't know what you need....the database is only as good as the person that originally put the data in! You'd be surprised how often they supply incorrect parts! I've even had parts for a completely different model not just mark before lol.

I've FINALLY found out what the crack is, the Europarts website doesn't ask what body the car is i.e. hatchback, saloon or estate.  This turns out to be rather relevant as the non-ST hatchback takes the arm the garage have wrongly fitted & the saloon, estate & ST take the "bent" arm.  Ford have also confirmed part number 1548460 is definitely the correct part & also backed up the 2nd garage I took it to this morning that said about the saloon, estate & ST taking a different lower arm.

 

At least I've got all the facts ready for when I collar the garage (again), I'll keep you guys posted.

It appears that there are 3 potential part numbers, 2 are straight in shape like the new one fitted to my car & the 3rd looks more like the original part.  Part number 1548460 looks like it may be the right one.

**Update** Well the wife took the car up to the garage (1st mistake) because I'm at work, the garage has spoken with the parts supplier (Euro Parts) & they reckon it's the right part & the only part they supply without any previous problems.

 

Is anyone able to let me know the correct Ford part number for the rear, lower left suspension arm? (That way I should hopefully be able to find a decent picture of it online!) Any information would be great.

 

Incidently I picked a MK1 Focus on the Euro Parts website & it gave the same part as if I picked a 2009 Focus, surely that can't be right as it looks totally different to the original?
