Slight knocking over uneven ground from front driver side. Whipped the wheel off and there's a fair bit of visible play from the lower ball joint. Got a pair of ball joints from Euro Car Parts (£36 inc.VAT) and set about changing them. Stupidly, despite seeing the taper on the new ones, I didn't think I'd need a ball joint remover...!!! Promptly replaced the wheel and set about looking for ball joint removers on the net. In my search, I discovered a number of references to other cars that needed the ball joints to be pressed into the uprights and the lower wishbones. Is this also true of the CLK and should I admit defeat and get a garage to do it instead? Any help gratefully received. Incidentally, the stealership said £49 each + 1 hour's labour (£99) per side +VAT, which works out at £347.80!!!
