Re: Hello there - 216 Cab

Cheers.

Have I got it wrong then - is this a 214? I always thought they were 216's.

Blimey - you think you know something!

Re: Hello there - 216 Cab

Re: Front Sub frame bent

Hi Just an update on this. I have decided to move mine on - it is on ebay - see if someone else can fix it - I am not very mechanical at all. I have bought another! My son bought one a few months ago and he decided my need was greater than his. I have bought his for what he paid. I'll post some pics...

Re: Front Sub frame bent

Hi - that would be ace. Where are you? How you fixed timewise? I did not manage to get the wheel off but took some snaps - i'll work out how to upload them in a bit.

Re: Front Sub frame bent

Also i am guessing that as my drivers side wheel has been shunted back then it is the Front sub frame that has been bent/I need to replace? Could you provide a pic of the damage (pref with wheel removed)? The inner end of the lower suspension arm mounts into the 'rear-front' subframe, and the shunt...

I did take it to a mechanic who told me it was effed and he j...
