[Steering & Suspension] MOT Fail
#1
So had the old girl in today... FAIL........

both front coil springs snapped, near side arm bushing destroyed and rear load sensor spring snapped.

garage said Citroen wont sell the spring for the load sensor and i'll need a whole unit for £££ but ebay to the rescue

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181041154897?s...1497.l2649

Parts = £170 (including ebay item)
labour = £100
Test = £45
Total = £315

Good deal?

Had a look on ebay and springs are available for £25 or less each so call it £70 so far.
What is the nearside bush ? If you mean a wishbone bush on the front then you are talking £25 for complete wishbone so with my assumption being correct ?? then the £170 parts bill is a little on the high side.
I do my own work so cannot comment exactly on labour costs but it does sound reasonable to me.
Geoff.
( I had my MOT today at 15:00 hrs - pass, sorry. )
