Fiat X250 Anti Rollbar snapped!

Anyone had a problem with a snapping front anti roll bar?
The van is just under 2 years old and lowish mileage. Would it be covered under warranty?

I would be onto the Fiat main commercial dealer immediately, this must be a faulty part.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Exactly what I was thinking! In fifty years in the trade I have only seen a couple fail, while the drop links are very common, funny enough just done one yesterday on a Peugeot,

Now reitired thank god , looking forward to flying when the weather is good or motorhoming when it´s not, just like to get away from it all now I can take it easy.

I think it's all this top quality metal coming from China, coil springs snapping is very common now.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

Hi
It is definitely the roll bar just at the start of the threads. Obviously of poor manufacture but fortunately covered under Auto-Trails extended warranty. Vans in the garage in the morning after which I will get all the latest from the owner.
Thanks for replies
