Re: ride height link arm missing!!

the rattle is common fault of the anti-roll bar linkages (they link the shock absorber to the anti-roll bar) if the ball joints are worn they start to rattle.
they are about 8-12 each. you need an allen key and ring spanner to undo the upper linkage(which tend to corrode, so can be fun removing.)

you need to get the xenon headlamp ride height sensor arm replaced as it will affect the height setting and may well fail the MoT if they are out by a long way. (this part is easily sourced and very cheap in breakers yards, compared to a dealership.)
