    206 GTi Front Struts

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    Whilst rotating my wheels this afternoon I noticed both of my front struts appear to be leaking oil quite profusely. Has anyone else come across this particular defect?

    I shall be ringing my Service mob tomorrow for them to have a look at it. It was there only 2 weeks ago for an 80k service and timing belt change. I know they had the wheels off, because that is why I was rotating them back again today - they put the old noisy ones on the front and they were driving me insane. I noticed it the moment I took the wheel off, one has to ask why they didn't!
    Regards,

    Simon

    if they are leaking that bad then there would have been signs of leakage when it was in there getting a service
    all i can say is the spare parts manager must be out of the running in the parts sales competition for the year and the mechanics have gone lazy
    i know i wouldn't be impressed if i got that sort of service from someone
    same as i wouldn't like bieng told i need to replace items that don't need replacing
    but thats another story

    Well I had them replaced yesterday. For your interest the r/h one cost $114.85 and the l/h one cost an extra 7 cents at $114.92. I wonder why that is?
