Our expert insights into coil spring replacement

What does a coil spring do?

The main purpose of a coil spring is to ensure the wheels remain in good contact with the road surface whilst also providing absorption from bumps and uneven road surfaces. Most cars have four coil springs; each supporting one corner of the vehicle.

What are the symptoms of a broken coil spring?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your coil springs:

  • Your car is noticeably lower on one side or dipped in one corner.

  • You notice strange rattles and knocks when driving on uneven roads.

  • Your car’s steering is uneven, or veering off to one side.

What happens when we do a coil spring replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Safely raise the car and inspect the suspension system and coil springs.

  • If necessary, they will replace the front or rear pair of coil springs.

  • Check other related components and advise whether they need to be replaced.

  • Lower the car and check the suspension again.

  • Finally they’ll test drive the car.

Hey Fixter, how often do I need to replace my coil springs?

There really is no set lifespan for coil springs and many can last the lifetime of the vehicle. However, poor road conditions and heavier cars can result in coil springs needing to be replaced more frequently.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

What does a coil spring do?

Also known as road springs or suspension springs, coil springs support your car at its desired height, to maintain proper alignment angles and to absorb road shock transmitted through the tires and shock absorbers. Most cars have four coil springs; each supporting one corner of the vehicle.

Coil springs are made of strengthened steel, expertly designed to give both stiffness and absorption to ensure they can do their job. Coil springs need to hold the weight of the vehicle up but at the same time not be so stiff that they can’t absorb shocks, resulting in your car being jolted from every bump in the road.

There are two types of coil springs - the first have a constant diameter steel all the way down the coil and the second type have a decreasing diameter which allows for more absorption and comfort and more strength under heavy loads.

Audi

Audi AG is a German automobile manufacturer, established over 100 years ago in April 1910, and has been owned by the Volkswagen Group since the 1960s.

This marque design and engineer luxury vehicles and distributes them worldwide. In the UK alone, there were over 1.7m Audi vehicles on the roads in the final quarter of 2018; a number that is continually growing year after year, and has more than doubled in the past decade.

Audi’s success can be attributed to its ability to move with the times, retaining its reputation as a prestige manufacturer and as part of the ‘big 3’ German marques responsible for high sales throughout the world market, alongside Mercedes and BMW.

Luxury executive vehicles for every type of driver

Audi’s current range features predominantly luxury executive and family cars of varying sizes: with compact to full-size saloons, coupés and sportback models, complemented by a growing range of SUV and sports car models.

Vorsprung durch Technik

The Audi brand is easily recognisable by their 4-ring logo—originally representing the four car companies to create Audi’s predecessor company, Auto Union—and their world famous slogan that ran for over 30 years, translated as ‘Being ahead through technology’. Despite no longer being used in their mainstream marketing, the meaning behind it still stands true of the brand today.

Audi: A sensation in rallying motorsport

Throughout the 1980s the Audi Quattro was famous for dominating rallying worldwide. The introduction of their four-wheel drive turbocharged model went on to win the World Rally Championships in both 1983 and 1984 and amassed a number of podium finishes and titles throughout the decade, all across the globe.

Audi’s reliability and reputation

Audi ranked 20th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Audi’s reputation for creating reliable running vehicles has steadily improved over time to become a strong contender to some of the Asian brands that have continued to dominate in this area.

How often does a coil spring need replacing?

Whilst there is no set lifespan for a coil spring, as they get older, their strength decreases and therefore their ability to absorb uneven surfaces and keep the wheels in contact with the road surface is reduced.

Poor road conditions and heavier cars can result in coil springs needing to be replaced more frequently as there is more stress and strain on these springs. Coil springs also tend to break more frequently if the vehicle is left stationary for long periods of time and can corrode if left in wet conditions.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

Your car’s suspension system, including your coil springs should be inspected during an MOT. Coil springs may cause your car to fail its MOT if they are badly fractured, severely weakened, dangerously modified, insecurely attached to the chassis, or missing.

To ensure that your car remains roadworthy, safe and drivable you should be aware of the symptoms of bad coil springs and have them checked regularly.

What happens when we do a coil spring replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • If necessary, they will replace the front or rear pair of coil springs.

  • Check other related components and advise whether they need to be replaced.

  • Lower the car and check the suspension again.

  • Finally they’ll test drive the car.

What causes coil springs to break?

A sudden impact to the suspension, such as driving over a speed bump or large pothole, can result in coil spring damage or snapping. Heavier vehicles or cars carrying a heavy load will put more strain on the coil springs. This could lead to premature breakage or weakening overtime.

Winter weather can also have a significant impact on the number of coil springs that fail. This is down to damp conditions causing corrosion and cold temperatures making it easier for coils to snap. Many coil spring failures are not always noticed by the driver. Often they’ll hear a crack, but can’t locate the cause of the noise, and it is only when the car has its MOT that broken coil springs are found.

When should a coil spring be replaced?

There really is no set lifespan for coil springs and many can last the lifetime of the vehicle. However, poor road conditions and heavier cars can result in coil springs needing to be replaced more frequently. If you experience any symptoms related to a broken coil spring you should have your car inspected and the springs replaced if necessary.

What are the symptoms of a bad coil springs?

Usually, there a few signs you can look for

  • If your car is noticeably lower on one side or dipped in one corner.

Can you drive with broken or missing coil springs?

No, it’s not recommended. Given that coil springs are essential for the handling, braking and general safety of the vehicle, as soon as you are aware that a coil spring has broken, it must be replaced. Coil springs are replaced in pairs usually, so both sides will be done at the same time.

What happens if you don't change a broken coil spring?

Failing to replace a broken coil spring will result in a very bumpy ride for you and your passengers. The car will also be harder to control and you may find that the steering veers off to one side. Given that coil springs are essential for the handling, braking and general safety of the vehicle, as soon as you are aware that a coil spring has broken, you should book it in to be inspected and replaced.
