    I am about to (maybe) get an '07 Passat 2.0 FSI SE which has 107k on the clock. In the previous MOTs for it there have been 2 successive advisories of

    "Monitor and Repair as neccesary"
    Rear Coil spring mounting corroded but not seriously weakened (5.3.1 (b) (i))

    My question is, does this mean the arm at the bottom of the spring and if so is this a pig of a job to do myself, without the aid of a pit or ramp?

    Any advice welcome.
    Also is their a classified section here where members sell their cars as I'd rather buy of an owner than a garage.

    Cheers

    U will need a ramp as both arms will need changing and when u position the two bolts that hold the arms in place also are a little tricky to put in as I'm guessing the old ones will be seized but it maybe done without but u won't have much clearance 🤷*♂️ ... and u will need tracking done after you have changed them anyway
