okay chaps.. thanx for all the info on teh supposedly loose rear arm.

I jacked the car up today to have a look. Basically the rear arm has been wiped a bit (it looks cleaner than teh offside one) and the nut that fixes it (the joint that is furthest away from eth wheel) looks new and has been freshly screwed on.

The arm is definitely not new and is the original one as the joint nearest the wheel has not been tampered with (you never know what dealers do these days).

Anyway, I tried moving the arm about and couldn't discover any play myslef ? What do I have to do to establish that this arm does indeed have a loose joint and needs replacing ? And is there a good reason why the nut has been taken off the joint by the dealer and replaced (maybe you have to remove the nut to feel for any play ?)

regards



Rich
