GT Wishbones lower balljoint help
Right set about changing my lower wishbones and drivers was no issue. Took around two hours.
To split the ball joint I used the jack on stub, few taps with hammer and pop.
So onto passenger and stuck solid. I have spent a day trying to remove ball joint. I'm no novice with cars, been DIY for over 15 years on various models but this is like nothing I've ever come across!
So far I have jacked up and hammered with one hammer/2 hammers for hours. I have broken a scissor type splitter. I have slightly bent a fork splitter. I have heated. I have jacked under arm and hit threads. Nothing will shift it?? Any suggestions? Tomorrow I'm going to take disc and shield off and see if I can force a fork splitter through front.
If this fails I guess its 2nd hand upright time? Do all 147 fit a 05 gt 1.9jtdm? Anyone close to Derby got one? Sorry for rant but I'm absolutely knackered and fed up!
