Re: Damaged Subframe

contact your nearest dealership and order new subframe bolts, then see if you can simply refit it.
if it is damaged then you will need a replacement subframe. try here, they can ship it on a pallet. or ebay .

you will need to have a look at both your subframe and steering rack/anti-roll bar as they may be damaged as well(as they are both bolted to the subframe).
have you checked all alignment of the body panels? if anything is noticably out then the chassis might be bent, any damage or marks on the front crossmember, or any marks on underbody of car, sills etc.. or problems with the nearside suspension?

regardless you will then need to get the cars full geometry checked out on a laser diagnostics ramp to ensure it wont pull/crab or rip up front/rear tyres.

as recomended above, in meantime car is NOT! roadworthy so keep it parked up.

Spare parts available for 2001 Scenic 1.9Dci, 97 Lag1, 02 Lag2.
