more of the same

And another example of a broken spring, this time on a Ford Fiesta.

Again a lack of observation resulted in a failure at MoT time.

another broken spring

The owner had noticed uneven tyre wear, and had both suspension arms replaced, it should have been impossible for any aware mechanic to miss the broken spring, but they did.

When replacing the suspension arm the broken spring would be at eye level as you take the wheel off.  How was it missed ?

An ex boss of mine was always trying to instill into our  apprentices that observation and awareness will get the job done correctly at the first try.
