166 rear balljoint

My car is back from the NCT test, all was fine apart from "rear offside balljoint" I need to order the parts, just not sure what to order. Any ideas?

I stand open to correction, but when mine failed for the same at the front it meant a new wishbone, I think you can replace the ball joint itself, but it is better fiscally to replace the whole wishbone. Made hell of a difference to the ride as well
