Waiting at the traffic lights on the bridge in wolvercote closest to the a40 Roundabout. Heading towards oxford I pull away in first gear at very low speed as the light turns green and an almighty boom. There is a huge dip/trench in the road on that bridge. So bad that it caused my steering rack stud to punch a hole in the exhaust manifold (see pic) which then caused my exhaust the blow and made the car unusable resulting in a trip to the garage. The noise of the impact was deafening and how can that only be in 1st gear?
Thankyou James Godden
