Zafira front road springs - are yours broken?

    I had been hearing a suspension rattle over bumps and tracked it down to an
    inch long piece of spring bouncing around in the lower spring pan. The lower
    end had snapped off. This doesn't seem to have lowered the suspension and
    the remaining spring still seems 'robust'. I was surprised that both sides
    were sitting at the same hieght. A quick check of the ends of each spring
    leads me to the fact that both springs have broken, as their ends feel the
    same - they are not flat!

    So, I am unlucky, or is this endemic - check it out? Perhaps a recall is
    called for?

    No not as far as I know. I asked just to ascertain if there was a model /
    year relationship with the fault you reported. For example a diesel engine
    model is heavier than their petrol equivalents so I wondered if that had a
    bearing on it, similarly a higher than average mileage car may show up
    similar faults..

    I have a 2002 1.8 comfort auto with 26,000 miles on the clock and at the
    moment to springs look ok. Perhaps someone else may report a similar fault.
