OK 4 Diddy Torx on inner wings, 2 each side, 3 x 6mm Undertray, 5 Plaggy along bonnet edge. Unclip at wing joints.
Re Wishbone, done two, A) Didn't Torque (kin tight) B) Did it in the air. C) No problems. Ignorance Bliss.

I agree about the ignorance but now I'm a gnostic. Same with the front rad subframe apparently it HAS to be 10 mm from the subframe, why fkuc knows. I will take a photo of the cracked bumper anyway it might rain tomorrow so no work doing

Subframe, just mark with tipex...

Being on the floor to tighten bushes, makes them last longer, no excess stress exerted on the rubbers..

Just believe in murphy's law. if it can go wrong, when in a rush, it will

One of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody; unless you are in prison.

Re: Fitting megane front wing

I was going to do a little write-up on changing a wing and wishbone on a Megane so at 11 am I started, nice day for some al fresco car repairs. I started by jacking up the car and putting her on axle stands. I removed the inner wheel arch covers the under tray and the front bumper. I started with the wishbone, ball joint was f****d so off with the old and discover the new has a 16mm stem on the ball joint. Ooops I said. Call motor factor and new ball joint ordered for tomorrow (I was under the impression you couldn't get parts for them). I moved on to the wing it's the wrong colour so more swearing and I went and mowed the lawn.
