So I replaced the top left (NS/PS) arm on my 147 JTD, a couple of months (4K) ago. All was going well until it started knocking again yesterday and got rapidly worse.
I had put effort into looking on this forum for a recommendation on which arms to buy and I got the TRW.
Just my luck, they are as crappy as the others - thought I.
Bought one in the local factors and went to put it on tonight only to find that the long bold was loose!
Tightened it up and all is hunky dory. TRW was not at fault after all.
I can only presume that I didn't tighten it properly when I put it on - even though I distinctly remember doing just that.
I wonder has anyone else had had this bolt come loose.?
Or worse, I wonder have you replaced the arm even thought the bolt had only come loose?
Are the stories of cheap arms wearing out in a few months actually only bolts coming loose?
Just thought I'd put it out there.
