So to cut a long story short I was driving home from my girlfriends and heard a noise, it was like the exhaust had slipped and hit the road and dragged along a bit. I pulled over had a little look around the car but couldnt see anything. I was only like 10 mins from home and heard some more scrapping noises so got out again only to see my sump dragging along the floor[:mad:]

I go and open the engine bay to see the engine has sunk, it looks like one of the bolts from the engine mount has sheared off on the left hand side. Then gravity has pulled everything down, cracking the sump!

Just as i was saving for new suspension...typical.

Anybody know of any damage that could be caused? Anyone know of any reliable garages in Leeds?

Need to find a lowloader in the morning to get it to a garge, cannot believe this has happened [brick]

Ooft! Similar thing happened to mine a few months ago on the passenger side, stopped short of the floor thankfully but driveshaft angle changed and it was undriveable.
