So, another busy Saturday saw a few different cars with mechanical problems. Importantly, it looks like we have gone back to the “pothole” problems again. Of late we have seen a few broken springs and tyres with bad cuts. Reluctant councils only repair the roads after the public have complained. Incredibly, or the claims for compensation damage increases!

So, one of the first cars to arrive belonged to a young lady. Consequently, the car was making rattles and banging noises from the drivers side front. Of course a sure sign of a broken spring. Sure enough we removed the front wheel to discover that the cars coil spring was in two separate pieces and a new one would be required.

Alex given the coil spring to do

Alex is now one of my experienced mechanics and we sought the customers permission to carry out the spring repairs. However, Alex discovered that the top suspension mounting bearing was also badly damaged and required replacing! In fact we could have re-fitted the part. But the suspension leg would have creaked loudly, Especially, after the grease that we place in the bearing had dried up.

We were lucky enough to locate a new suspension top bearing and housing and Alex build the suspension unit back up again. So, the young lady was notified that her car was now ready. As with all our customers we explained in detail what we had done. So, she thanked us for our service and headed off into the Sun in her rejuvenated and extremely quiet Vauxhall Corsa.

Just as a footnote! Well Vauxhall’s are a very popular car in the Halifax area! Primarily because we used to have a Vauxhall main dealer in the town for many years. Also the Corsa is a popular car amongst young people in the town.
