Loss of Steering
Has anyone experienced a total loss of steering on their BMW? I did last night (fortunately I was hardly moving & had just "un-parked).
Whilst I'm subjected like everyone else to speeds humps & the like, I take special care to drive slowly over them or any other high object (I have the sports suspension so if I don't, I'd bottom out). I'm not aware of having subjected the car to any untoward abuse so seeing that my Tracking Control Arm had sheered off just about in its middle, was quite a surprise to say the least. Absolutely no signs of damage or whatever was seen on the wheels, tyres or suspension that may have contributed to this alarming state. A new arm is on order & I should be running again by Tuesday. Any similar stories (& possible explanations) would be very interesting to hear.
