    Koni Front coilover issues, Help needed ASAP

    I have a 2001 S3 that i fitted Koni Coilovers to around 4 /5 years back,
    The kit has worked well But randomly this weekend there was a loud "pong" from the passenger side front wheel followed bya scraping.
    On inspection i fount ( rather shockingly) that the red alloy ring that connects the drop link to the shocker had split into three parts ,
    So now im left either to complain to Koni and ask for help or price up replacements.
    Im guessing the least i need is either the part thats broke to try and refit a new ring or a new pair of front coilover dampers ( can use the springs from my current set.

    I asked this question in the 8L A3 section and was dirrected towards yourself,
    Can you help in any way please?
    Many thanks

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    Afternoon,

    Do you have a picture of the problem?

    The kit will be out of warranty now I'm guessing but this is something best to check with the company you purchased from, as for a replacement I will need to speak with Koni as they've only ever supplied us with full kits.

    This is the part that has broken off...
    I did buy a couple of rear shocks for this car and from nosing about on their site i think i can see the shocks listed as singles but dont understand the parts codes,

    If you could do anything to help that would be great,
    Thanks
