Would a gas axe not shift that bolt?I'm just trying different techniques on the wishbone with the snapped bolt - the last thing I want to do is take them both out of the car and then have major issues getting the bushes out. I'm going to try the homemade tool I used to get the front bush out, using a couple of hole saws though when I next have a chance.
I'm actually quite tempted to buy a press I've seen on eBay that's about £40 posted and then selling it on - or even if you're interested, I could buy it and then sell it on to you at a discount? The right tool makes all the difference, but then if you're only using it once, it's hard to justify.
Looking at this thread though, they make it seem pretty straightforward to do without a press. The front bushes are just rubber, without any sleeve, so it's weird that mine aren't coming out as easily as they say they should.
In other news, since the wishbone got replaced, the steering is definitely out - it actually handles like a pig - but I don't want to get an alignment until I've had the MoT and I can put the steering rack bush and wishbone bushes in.
That, and I've finally persuaded the other half to help me bleed the brake MC today. Really couldn't be bothered to get the Gunson out just to bleed that. Too much faff. At least it's a chance to take the charge pipe off and see if there's any soot buildup ahead of the MoT.
