    Default Front Wishbone

    Has anyone changed a front wishbone on a Vectra C, if so, how difficult is it and what tools and knowledge is needed to do this. My mate who is a mechanic keeps putting off doing this for me so I want to just do it myself.
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

    How long did it take you to do? Is it difficult removing the ball joint?

    If you take the weight off the arm then disconnect the inner mounts you should find the ball joint easy drops down/ out once the pinch bolt is removed
