[Steering & Suspension] Replacing Front Springs, 2004 Multispace HDi
Hi All,

I've got the dreaded broken left hand spring. It's been making an odd noise for a few days, I would have sworn it was the exhaust moving. Anyway, further inspection shows it to be a broken spring.

It's been about 25 years since I last replaced coil springs, and that was on a MK2 Escort with a mate when I was 14..

Has anyone got a decent walk-through for doing it - I will order the springs, I have some spring compressors. I don't have a Haynes, and I don't know what else I need.

I'm sure as hell not paying the £86+vat each for the springs, and £75+vat for new top mounts, + labour as recommended by the Citroen dealer. My local specialist has closed..

Thanks for any pointers!

Mike P

You could try having some made although it might not be any cheaper.

Im sure it was these people I tried for uprated springs for my bouncy C15 back in '05.
They wanted the originals as patterns (erm.. no-I'm using them right now!) and the price,although perfectly reasonable for a one-off job, wasnt really worth it for me.
FWIW i just had this done on a 2003 Multispace - cost was £123.33 + VAT all in to replace one front spring (Moss Tyres on Clifton Moor, York - local independents)...
I paid £286 inc VAT for two springs + top mounts + ARB hushes, fitted by my independent
