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.

Renault

Groupe Renault is a French multinational automobile manufacturer, established over 120 years ago in 1899.

This French marque has around 1.4million vehicles on the road in the UK today. Their numbers peaked between 2007 and 2008 at over 2million vehicles, yet have been on a slow decline ever since.

Sensibly priced options for middle of the road vehicles

Renault makes a wide-ranging selection of respectable vehicles.

As you’ll find with most manufacturers in today’s market, the cream of their crop lies with their SUV models. Other stand-outs are the RS models built for a much more fun driving experience and the electric models that are also sitting impressively in a steadily growing market.

Renault: a constant contender in all manner of motorsports

In the 1970s, Renault set up a dedicated motorsport division that went on to take the winners title in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1978, with the Renault Alpine A442. They have been competing and achieving successes in both rallying and Formula One ever since.

Renault Formula One

Renault debuted their first formula one car (and team) at Silverstone in 1977; it was the first of its kind to include a turbo engine. The team continued until 1986 and shortly after, in 1989, they began to supply engines to the successful Williams-Renault car.

The Benetton team was renamed Renault F1 in 2002, and the team went on to win the constructors championship in both 2005 and 2006 with Spaniard Fernando Alonso at the wheel.

More recently, Renault powered the winning Red Bull Racing team in 2010 and returned to racing as a team in their own right, from the 2016 season onwards.

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:

  • 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.

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.

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.
