Is that a free screwdriver/chisel? Glass half full thinking! Just don’t injure yourself with it

😂 it’s a snap on too I think

Even your motor is unlucky,  or someone has tried having a go at your fuel tank?

My Mrs rang me at work. Says that the ka was banging at 65mph. OK below that. Mickey mouse aerial topper was the culprit.

I had a similar issue several years ago when a wedge shaped piece of steel spiked the plastic fuel tank of my cab. Its amazing how much **** lays on the roads.

Riding motorbikes you discover that 🙈

I heard about someone who took the car in about a clunking noise everytime they turned right - finally traced to a can of pop in the glovebox!!!

My ex did that, rang me said there is a hell of a bang when she turned right. Told he to park up and drove to her 1/2 hour, to discover a tin of briwax in the glove box on the right and a small packet of tissues on the left stopping the tin on a left turn from making any sound, but giving it a good run up on the right turn. 🙃

My wife runs over a stick on the way to work two weeks ago. Car is making a clunking noise. Drop it into the garage and both front suspension springs are broken ????? 😁

Blimey, how big was the stick?

I did wonder. Garage mot'd the car 3 weeks earlier. They said they can just break but it's unusual both together. Its an Audi and fairly low slung. I passed comment that it would not happen with Toyota. Its only 6 years old and first spring on any car I have owned that's broken. Build quality 🤔

Some years back now, my mates wife was constantly breaking front springs on an Astra.
Very bumpy, rural roads around there. 
Oh, and she cornered like an idiot!

😁 my wife drives pretty gently although it's only throttle and brakes. She does like clipping kerbs and hedgerows 🤣

Funny things coil springs . I've had three break , all when I wasn't in the car . One of them broke as I was standing on the doorstep , handing the car keys to my mate so that he could take the car for mot. It went with a fair crack , and all the dried mud fell from under the wheel arch .

Apparently, some people even have guns containing coil springs! Very odd.

Most peculiar however leaf and V springs also break 

apparently when my top lever spring broke last week it wasn’t under warranty 🙄

I do hope it was an easy fix, good job it is pre-season.  :cool1:

Already mended lucky enough it was one of my spares although you don’t expect these things to break you would think that they would warranty stuff for at least a 120 years
