Anti Roll Bar Linkage
This 07, 21,000 mile Mazda had its first MOT and was found to have broken anti roll bar linkages. The ball joints are fitted with a plastic cup with four plastic pins on its base. These locate through four holes in the linkage cup at each end and are “heat riveted” over !!!
As seen below the ball joints had broken free of the linkage bar. A bit of a weak design fault we think.
