HELP DESPERATE - Wishbone ball joint come off

Hi Guys

Anyone in or around manchester who is dismantling a GTV? I had to change my front wishbone and cut the ball joint bolt off with an angle grinder so i desperatly need a new nut and bolt but i thought i could move the car and the ball joint has come away completly leaving the car in the road. If anyone can help, preferably tonight, i would be very very gratefull.

If you're deserate, use one of the bottom strut to hub bolts and nuts (there's two each side), they're the same as the ball joint pinch bolts and nuts.
Then find a normal threaded bolt that fits the strut/hub you stole, (make sure it fits tight in the hole, I think it should be M8) until you can source the right one.

It is possible that a Fiat dealer might help? Be aware it is a stretch bolt with specific dimensions! Good luck dude.

Yes, Fiat do sell them, bought 2 for 15, but at least i have some piece of mind that the job will get done properly now. Fiat also sell a lot of Alfa parts.
