    Hi, having had my front tyres changed this morning my car made funny noises on the drive home. After emptying the car out and still having the noise, I eventually found my shock seems to of come out of its location. Has anyone else had similar happen? How can this happen when only the front tyres were changed?

    Obviously I have tried contacting the place that the tyres were fitted, and they say it can't be them, and purely a coincidence

    The rear shock mounting has broken, a simple and inexpensive repair if you are handy with tools, and I'd expect less than £100 for a garage to supply and fit the part.

    Something has rotted out and it's fell apart when the car's been jacked up. Better now than over a hump at speed.

    No James not from a Quattro to a fwd. still doing better than I am though. My Quattro is sitting with no intake manifold on and still a load of work needing done.
