I had noticed a bit of knocking from the rear and so booked the car in for a looksee a few weeks ago , when looking under the car when I was cleaning her the other weekend saw that something wasn't quite right- see picture .

I took the car to a local garage as didn't fancy driving to Birmingham where it booked in and it seem the spring pan is a bit rotten.

Any ideas of best place to get one, Alfa Workshop are £368.50 including vat & postage , is there anywhere cheaper or is the going rate as seem a bit rare ?

Thanks for any help

Daniel

I tried Alfaholics, they don't have any stock.

That's the wrong side for me I'm after the right hand side,(drivers side) else I think I would have it .

My garage has given me price of £540 , this include fitting and picking up my car.Which is why I could do with trying to get it done for a bit less by sourcing the part and get it fitted local if possible.

I had both rear spring pans done at Autolusso Bournemouth back in February. Secondhand ones painted in good condition were £80 each and 3 hrs labour £150 (including some time to fit new Powerflex bushes) + VAT. So maybe about £200 all in for one side? Worth calling Laurence to see if they have one if you're just after the part.

Cheers,

Andy

Judging by the state of the spring pan I'd say you should be looking at a fair bit of additional work. I'd consider the Autolusso overhaul if I were you rather than a straight swap out.

Wow, that looks awful (sorry I am still in shock!)
Suspension refresh required here it looks like. It's not too difficult to do yourself. I paid about £140 for a new one last year from Germany but that was when the euro was good!

yeah thats bad, perhaps the entire rear suspention needs a redo, i would not be surprised if you have a few rust holes or atleast 2-3 mm of steel shaved off the entire underbody.

Check behind the wheel arches plastics,
The C hook drain holes,
Up where the lines go. should be quite a bit there.

once the Undercoating gets penetrated it just holds all the water and makes it worse.

I got mine from an eBay seller, they came powdercoated and powerflexed all ready to go. Wasn't that expensive IIRC
