    I am needing a o/s rear coil spring, my car is the touring model and from what I have read the saloons have different springs and both could have a part number times ten! How are you suppose to find out what spring and part number you need?

    Been looking here, http://www.partsauction.co.uk/ they have 5 rear coils with 5 different part numbers. Only thing i've noticed with my springs is, they have 3 painted bands if that is a clue of some sort!

    Cheers anyone

    I found the answer, Ring the dealers and give them your chassis number, they will know what springs are needed.

    Can you PM me the last 7 digits of your chassis number please. I will see if I can run a search for you.

    Does you car have self levelling suspension or anything?
