    The wife’s Jazz suddenly started displaying loud “twanging noises” when turning sharply.
    My first thought was coil spring breakage but a quick look with the wheels off didn’t make it obvious. Further checks couldn’t show up anything obvious and as a last resort I popped into Halfords, ( it was Sunday).
    The Fitter kindly popped the Jazz onto the lift and there it was, the drivers side coil spring was broken right at the top. Being Sunday no one could offer a repair so My first job in the morning is to phone around to get two springs fitted. The annoying thing is that my CR-V is being collected tomorrow to have a full service and MOT so both cars will be off the road. Hopefully both will be roadworthy within a couple of days.

    Thanks Andy
    After obtaining a quote of £135 per side from Quickfit I contacted my local MOT station who normally carries out my servicing and repairs and they fitted new coils for £80 per side. Thankfully this resolved the problem and the Jazz is now back on the road.
    They also gave my CR-V a full service and MOT’d the car which passed. Two happy Hondas and Drivers

    The CR-V and the Jazz are already in the club garage along with a previously owned 2002 Accord.
