My garage has informed me a spring on the front of my 2002 Picasso 1.8 has broken, apparently it's now in two pieces! For some reason they don't consider it dangerous enough to ground the car, but warned me it could puncture the tyre if it shifts - which isn't something I like the sound of!
They mentioned that it was a problem they have seen on a few other occasions, and suggested I investigate to see if it is a known fault. Has anyone else suffered this? If it's a known problem, have citroen indicated they will do something about it - and are they likely to do it for a 6 year old car?
I'm surprised it's gone, the car (although ageing) is in perfect running order with only 45,000 relatively sedate miles on the clock.
Is changing the spring a difficult job? The garage reckon around £130 for a single side, I'd prefer to replace as a pair so I'd rather save the pennies and do it myself if reasonably straightforward.
All advice gratefully received.
