play in front wheel - could it be the upper wishbone?
evening all, recently my 147 has started to clunk over potholes, uneven roads etc.
I had a pull at the wheel today (front drivers side on a LHD) and there is some play, when i pull the wheel from the top.
I then had a pull of the vertical 'part' which the upper ball joint attaches too (whats that called), this also had play in it. I followed that up with my fingers and the play appears to be coming from the upper wish bone and in particular the inside bushing/bolt. picture below....
Does this sound feasible? Is it common? And most importantly, how do i fix it?
i assume a new wish bone is better than new bushes, as you need to remove it anyway?
