Is this a major problem or can I live with it for a few weeks?

    I noticed this while doing a quick walkaround the car before setting off... I'm pretty sure it was the snow..

    It's my N/S/R shock, it seems to be missing the protective sleeve from the arm.

    Can I cope with this until after Xmas when I'll have money to get a new shock if needed?

    Thanks.. Would it have a slit to wrap around or will I have to dismantle and slide over?

    Ha! So it is.. makes things a lot easier!

    I'll do it once I get the car home, currently sitting in the work carpark while I've got the duty on-call van!
