Hello and massive issue
Hello, Im adam and live in essex
sorry for join and already present the forum with a problem but im sure your advice will prove invaluable.
I have a 2000 alfa 156 1.8 tspark
it has 2 duff wishbones.
yesterday i attempted to change the offside wishbone and to say the least managed to make more mess than it had to start with.
i had to cut out a bolt and it was completely rounded off and seized in.
in doing so i managed to tear no only the gaiter on the drive shaft but also on the steering rack. I one on the steering rack is now leaking fluid (is it oil or steering fluid?)
now finding parts is proving difficult. My nearest dealer is 20 miles away and they seem to be the only place that stock the wishbone bolt.
anyhow. at the moment i cannot get the new wishbone back on. it gets stuck on the bar that the drop link attaches too. any ideas.
also in regards to the leaking fluid what should i do? do i need to bleed anything later?
can you buy new gaiters for the drive shaft or do i need to replace the whole thing?
i am never attempting this again and the other side will be getting done by someone else. nightmare
