Mine did exactly the same thing two weeks ago. Much worse looking though. Pulled out the driveshaft.
Hmm... my reaction when it happened to my car was that I was glad it happened at an autocross, and not during a canyon run the following day, when the outcome could have been much much worse. But I also thought it was possibly just my fault for not keeping the bolts properly torqued and checked. Mine may have backed out prior to breaking.Thomasio said:> Mine did exactly the same thing two weeks ago. Much worse looking though. Pulled out the driveshaft.
Perhaps this should be a sticky. People die when this stuff happens... makes me wonder about a recent tragic crash...
Nuts?xtn said:I know of one other owner who discovered - not that the bolt heads had snapped off - but simply that the nuts had backed off. I'm talking about the two upper a-arm mounting bolts. One of his bolts was completely missing and the other had no nut on it at all.
