Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

I need some advice.
I went away for a month and was expecting the usual flat rear tyre as have slow puncture but was very surprised to see the whole front of my car has lowered, the wheel arch had lowered so the wheel is actually one/two inch inside it. Its not just one side it is both front wheels.
I presume its coils or shocks but not sure which, but what is strange its both sides not just one, that is the mystery?
Car is Fiesta 2007 1.25 Studio model.

Holy cow, springs on both sides!  Aren't MOTs wonderful things.  I've just posted to ask suspension advice on our fifth gen Fiestas as I've just had one go ping on mine.  Best of luck Zesty!

Did the springs snap while it was parked it have I misread that?

I've snapped a couple when first moving off after a period of being parked but never heard of them spontaneously snapping! :unsure:

Yup, same here.  I've had this "wake up and the springs have gone" phenomena twice. If you Google around it's a real thing and happens all the time.  Someone smart needs to look at this closer and let us all know why this happens.😀
