Update On My Espace Knock

Hi well i have to say iam feeling much better than i did yesterday and my wallet is much lighter as well

As you all know i had to change the wheel bearing, i have got the old wheel bearing out of the ABS hub and off the stub,the new one will be pressed into the ABS hub and the stub on Friday,i have got the old ball joint out off the wishbone and the wishbone off the car ready to press the new ball back in,iam very lucky as it has not been done before because if it had i would have to buy a completed wish bone at the cost of 85+VAT from my local motor factors.

On doing all this work i have to say its been a nightmare for me it has all went against me from the start i had to cut the ball joint off and replace it and also the track rod end arm was also replaced because i thought at the start of the job it was it????so i have just went ahead and also replaced the drop down link stabilizer and the anti roll bar bushings as well the only two bushing i left was the two on the the wishbone arm that site in the sub frame but they are in very good order,so to date it has cost me.

Wheel bearing 52.88

Track rod end arm 28.48

Ball joint 15.51

Drop link stabilizer 10.41

Anti roll bar bushings 13.76

ball joint,wheel bearing pressed in 20

My Time priceless


I will give you a update later in the week when the car is rolling again all the best Donald.
