Take it to a shop with a lift and pay them to put it up in the air so you can see what suspension component has failed. should be rather obvious once you can see both sides at once. i would want a lift which lifts the car up by the wheels as opposed to a frame lift. with the frame lift both sides will be fully extended and problem may not be obvious. broken coil spring is not rare.

I have a rover75classic 54 it is leaking water when it rains on near side is it a useual fault

Had same problem. Lift up rear seat on drivers side and you will see a steel tube running from the wheel arch under the seat. Tube is about 2 inches wide. If this is rusted underneath then water is getting via the wheel arch open end of the tube. It runs into the rear foot well and forward into drivers footwell, also runs under rear seats and into the boot! I removed the rear drivers side wheel, pulled away the plastic wheel arch lining then sealed the hole where the wiring leads through this pipe. Covered it with plastic flashing replaced the wheel arch lining. Took 30 mins to repair, took a week to dry the carpet, rear seats and boot carpet.

Optonial tire size for ford 2004 freestar 17 inch wheels

Hi Atkins, What we need to avoid is the tyre coming into contact with the wheel arch. I would ask advise regarding the size from a reputable supplier, I suggest fitting a higher profile tyre, maybe a 65 instead of 55, but ask for advise first. Regards John

How to remove a bumper on a peugeot 308

I have just finished replacing the broken grille on my wife's Peugeot 308 (09 reg) wiuth the help of a YouTube video in Russian .... ...not that I could understand what they were saying but at least you can follow what they are doing.

If attempting this, allow a good three hours which is what it took me as there are many bolts to undo and a knack of pushing and pulling fragile plastic lugs. Take your time.

Removal can be done without putting car on ramps as you will need to put the wheels on full lock to get at the wheel-arch liners.

Firstly, undo the various screws on the plastic tray underneath the engine which connect to the front bumper skirt. There are three main bolts with washers which are located half way back, one central and one each side.

Secondly, put the steering on full lock to give you access to the wheel-arch liner for each front wheel. Pull the wheel-arch liner back to reveal a 10mm bolt where the bumper meets the wing of the car. You will need a ratchet with a swivel knuckle and 10mm socket to get onto the bolt head. Undo the bolt and repeat on the other side.

Lift the bonnet and at the front edge you will see four black flat circles. Using a small flat blade screwdriver, lever up the centre and you can then lift up with your finger which releases the retaining plastic bolts.

Looking at the top of the panted front bumper where it attached to the front of the engine compartment, you will see several small slots along the width of the plastic which you can place a small flat bladed screwdriver into and push down gently whilst pulling the front panel forwards in a rocking motion to release the plastic lugs. The whole bumper assembly should then start disconnecting from the car. It is helpful to have a second person to gentle prise away the wheel-arch sections from the car body. The whole front bumper section should then fall away but be careful as the wiring for the front fog lights will still be attached. Take hold of the lamp holders and turn through 90 degrees to remove the bayonet fittings. Pull the bumper assembly clear of the car and place on a fabric cloth/mat to avoid scratching the paintwork.

Re-fitting is a reverse of the above.

How do i change mazda 6 headlight bulb do i need to remove the whole light as its awkward to access

This is difficult give yourself a good 30 mins. I have only found one way. Bonnet up - You will need a slim torch and a stubby x headed strewdriver to remove the plastic screws that hold on the wheel arch cover. Turn wheel away to give you more room. Once this is out of the way you can see the back of the light cluster, A twist and the back cover comes off. Remove the electrical connector, locate the retaining clip (much of this is by feel) when you take out the bulb make sure you note the way it came out as the replacement must go in the same way. Do not touch the bulb glass with your fingers, use paper or gloves. By feel, re-fasten the clip then reconnect the electrics. Reposition cover and twist back on, Refasten wheel arch cover. Make sure the cover goes inside the lip of the wheel arch otherwise spray from the wheel may get in., good luck
