    Hi All

    Daughters car is showing signs of a rear banging noise over pot holes ect

    Had a look at the usual and nothing obvious except ....

    Bounce the rear of the car with hand brake off and in gear and O/S rear metal screetching noise

    Bouncing the car while holding the spring is not good as it feels like its juddering while making a noise

    Spring looks fine and spacing looks equal compared to the Passenger but it don't feel good ...

    Can't see the bottom of the spring as it hides in the rear wish bone but does any one have any ideas

    I'm thinking the bottom of the spring has snapped

    Wheel bearing feels fine - roll bar and drop links looks fine

    She does say its sounds better with the tank full of fuel

    Any thoughts

    Golf 5/6 rear springs often snap at the bottom where you can’t see them and the broken bit bounces around inside the spring arm making a terrible racket.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Crasher

    On form again... Cheers

    One spring snapped in two places at the bottom and the other was fine

    Both springs replaced in 1 hour with a pair of Sachs for 35 each

    Remove bolt from bottom wish bone to hub and then spring comes out easy with no spring clamps

    This is one of the easiest jobs under your car you can do on your drive with a few tools
