    snapped strut brace

    after finally gettin round to fitting my brace, i noticed a few strange noises coming from the front of the car, so had a bit of time today so decided that i would fit my lifters (cheers kirsty) and have a wee play around with the strut brace.

    SO, opened the bonnet to reveal that it had snapped at one end! dont know how its came about really - only thing i can think of is that its been a poor weld. think this is wot has caused it or has it been something i've done?

    i'll get some pics up and you can see what you think.

    I think there may be a little problem doing that. I have it on good authority that the company in question are now ceased trading and have the administrators in :shock:

    According to a Post on MigWeb - the company in question has defo gone - the sign has been taken down outside the premises, and there are no cars outside and no lights on inside.

    Divma - could you contact the manufacturers direct??? (just a thought - they made the faulty item)

    Speculation dear boys ! - be careful now ! :roll:

    Must have been a crappy weld mate. Cant think you could have broken it under normal circumstances, unless it was over extended at fitment ! :|

    I have seen all the posts on Corsa Sport, Mig etc etc. Until you have some concrete evidence, then it is all speculation.

    This site operates a strict ruling on company related topics, be it good or bad. Please respect them at all times.
