Hey, i was driving home last night and there was a knocking noise.
i stopped and noticed my rear nearside shockabsorber has come away from the beam!



i guess it just bolts onto the beam so im missing the bolt and rubber grommets. when it was snowing here a few months ago i was doing handbrake turns and that wheel hit a kerb so i guess thats the cause.
Whoops silly boy!

is it a hard job to bolt it back on? whats involved?
And would anyone have one of the bolts that they can post to me or i can collect from london/essex? il pay what its worth!
im supposed to be driving to near brighton late tonight to see my missus and if it doesnt get fixed i cant go ;-(

any help would be great!!!

Looks to me like there is some metalwork missing from the rear beam, seeing as the nut and rubber is still in place. Might need a plate welded in to restore the fixing point
