    Default Lower suspension ball joint

    Got my new Vectra today is an 06 1.9 CDTI, it failed it's MOT on OSF lower suspension ball joint excessive play.

    So will need to replace this asap to get it though the MOT, anyone know if I can just replace this part alone? easy job? any idea of cost etc?

    if it has excesive play then it will fail an MOT,
    its an easy job and will take about 20/30 mins, and only 4 bolts, you will need a 18mm socket and spanner aswell as a 15mm spanner and a E10/12 socket.

    cool, thanks for the fast reply. I have lots of tools just been looking on eurocarparts but didn't find the part listed, do you know of it's dealer only part or should any motor factors stock it.

    I have a big list of jobs for this car this weekend so keen to get everything ordered.
