  10. 2003 Scenic Ball Joints

    Steering and Suspension
    My 2003 Scenic seems to go through ball joints fairly quickly. I know the roads around here are not in the best shape, but surely they should last for more than a year, which appears to be around the average length of time they last. The ones on at the moment were bought from Europarts I think...
