Front top mounts, squint? Clio 2
I'm new to this Clio business and i'm currently driving a Clio on a 2000 plate 1.9d van. I've been having a little bit of bother at higher speeds when I hit uneven ground. It almost feels like the rear of the car is lifting and wobbling!!
I get the feeling quite a lot but it was severe on a journey to Larnaca (i'm in Cyprus!), severe enough to stop and check the wheel wasn't coming off!
I jacked the car up and everything seems ok, apart from the front struts.
Firstly there is a gap (which closes when jacking) between the strut housing and the rubber mount. Is this normal?
Secondly the offside gap is actually a little squint, it slopes from left to right.
Not too sure if the problem is related or if it's meant to be like this? Any advice would be great!
