Hi
This morning I started my car and there was a loud bang of metal on the ground. I backed her up and found this black half circle bracket on the ground. One end is sheared off but the other is finished neatly. Anyone know what it is and if I can drive my car to the garage safely?
Thanks

Sounds like the end of a spring - they usually fail when stationary for some reason. It is probably safe to drive it to the garage, but just check that the main body of the spring is in place and isn't likely to gouge into the tyre.

My rear one snapped not long ago. Lost the top coil or two. Only reason I noticed was because the bit that snapped off was sitting inside what was left of the spring rattling. It was safe to drive, because it was only the top coil or two that was snapped. Just took it easy round corners, braking and potholes, etc.

But yeah... A picture and this wouldn't be speculation lol
