Morning all!
We came back from a week in Spain last night, picked our car up from the parking compound and as we drove away we could hear a metallic rattling when going over bumps!
Car was perfectly fine when we dropped it off.
Took it back to the parking compound where one of the very helpful guys there had a look and presented me with a small piece of my OSF coil spring!
No more rattle, but another extended warranty claim I'll be submitting.
The spring must just have gone whilst being parked up!?

Check your incontrol app to see if they've been rallying around in it

That is interesting as they do not just fail they snap when they hit a bump or something hard. It may have been previously cracked and come lose but most likely it has just occurred.

Unless it was the speed bump on the way out of the compound? Saying that I would've been doing 5mph max??

When the spring coil went last year on my previous Evoque, which was a MY16, there was no warning. Parked on the drive with no rattles. Next morning went down the drive and heard rattling sound, thought something was loose in the door pocket, next thing clunking metallic noise and a part of the coil was on the road. Apparently can break but not separate straight away.
Had an estate car in at the local garage for some brake overhaul and waited whilst they put it on the ramps to have a look. The mechanic showed me one of the rear coils, which was broken at the top and said it would only take driving over the next bump in the road for it to fall off.

Had this happen to us fortunately not
( yet ) on the Evoque but the wife's Scirocco I put it down to potholes speed humps etc as we live next to a school we have both in abundance.
But as said I'd be checking the journey info on the app or own tracker if fitted 🤔

Don't laugh I have done that repair on more than one car, this is not a good job though, needed gungum liberally applying before the plate is fixed on, pop rivets and an aluminium plate for longevity. The repairs actually outlived the cars which probably says more about the standard of my old cars than the quality of the repair. ;)

Reminds me when I was a youngster used to sleeve broken exhaust pipes with the appropriate size vegetable tin gun gum and exhaust clamps whilst getting replacement part. Oh, happy days of youth

Likewise. It was always baked bean tins for me. I went through a lot of beans to patch my exhausts up.:oops:

Yep My Mazda was quoted £450 for a new exhaust.. I asked can I have a look at it.. a Bracket had broken off, Can you weld?.. Oooh no, I took it away, jubilee clip round the exhaust and bracket, was good for another 5 years and sold it still going fine.

I remember it went to a dealer once and they said the exhaust has a clamp round it... Yeah, and?...

Re the spring, it's not unusual... esp with all the blooming Pot holes, just done one on our Volvo.
