Have any of you Foci Fans had front springs break? Mine did yesterday on the passenger side. A loud twang and it had gone. Luckily it broke inside the bottom coil sheathing and contained itself. Took it to the dealer and they replaced both under a new extended "front coil spring breakage warranty." Good for 10 years or 120,000 KM. My car is a 2002 Zetec sedan with 56000 KM's. Beware!

I checked the springs today and it appears they install the new ones upside down, with the sheathing at the top so any moisture can drain out. OE springs aint pretty!

That JUST happened to my friends zx3 the other day, it sounded horrible when he took right turns. And it was the same side, the passengers side. Apparently there was a recall on it.
