96 Spider 2.0TS

Independent Specilaist in Surrey/Hants/Sussex


I am the proud owner of a 96 Spider 2.0TS.

Unfortunately, it would appear to be needing a fair bit of work to get it through its MOT:

rear exhaust box corroded and blowing
slight play in both rear trailing arms
play in both rear lower swinging arms
oil leak from o/s driveshaft oil seal

plus an annual service, which at 12 years ought to include a timing belt change, plus MOT

Can anyone recommend an independent specialist in the Surrey/Hants/West Sussex area would could do this work for less than the main dealer who gave me a quote yesterday (I am still recovering from the shock!).

One I have contacted has suggested re-bushing the existing arms with polybushes. I would be grateful to hear of anyone's experience of having this work done.

Thanks in advance.
