    Hello all,

    So I thought I was going to start an easy job but it's been one problem after another, as is the way!

    I've had to change both lower ball joints and in the process of getting one off the pin on the ball joint came off and has snapped so there's only a small stub left. Any idea on getting this out? Drill it out? Annoying because I'll have to take the whole assembly apart.

    Cheers all

    James

    Do I have to take the brakes off to get to it or is there an easy way?
