    hi Amand.

    that looks like a weird result for sure.

    The part was faulty if its only 2 months old.
    Hopefully you got someone else to fit it, in which case , just take it back.
    If you bought and fitted it, then send the Pic to the supplier and demand a refund or new part .

    Ive just realised that I've had the wishbone replaced and not the wishbone bush. I think thats where my mistake was.

    ONE question though please, if I do get it replaced will I have to get the wheel alignement done again?

    Amand.

    Did you get it done at a garage. ??

    If so take it back and ask/tell them to sort it.
    They should have checked that the bush was ok. and demand that they ensure that your wheel alignment hasnt been knocked out as well.

    ok well in the end had to get a new wishbone fitted. that last guy who fitted it didnt secure the bolt to well and that guy was hammering it in, whereas this guy didnt use a hammer.
