Re: Help needed - big problems with 3 yr old Megane 250

Not the front wheel but the back wheel passenger side on OHs Grand Cherokee started making a knocking noise, in the fast lane of the M1 doing 80, the wheel came off as the axle snapped, the force was enough to shear the brake disc in two. Motorway police who attended 'had never seen anything like it' and we are both lucky to still be here. At the time the Jeep was 4 years old. Cost 1800 in repairs, then 6 months later, there was a recall issued for that exact problem. Needless to say, they would not give anything to recompense.
