Got the car back and it went straight through the test, whilst at the garage i noticed the wishbones in the bin (the old ones) i had a look at them and the balljoints were absolutly flapping in the wind.
By the way both wishbones and both CV gaiters cost me £280 all done, the mech told me the wishbones were £57 each,the gaiters were around £15 a piece and he also said he had to get some replacment wishbone bolts from renault, but did`nt say how much they were.
I had to laugh when he told me he also had a MK2 laguna .......
On a final note , just like to say what a poor design this balljoint system is , the cars only don 26k , so by my reckoning i better prebuy some if i intend to put a decent milege on the clock , oh, whilst i`m "ranting" had a look on FRENCH
and found some balljoint only attachments,for LAG2 that looked to be genuine renault parts.
Can`t see why you shouldn`t be able to grind /drill old rivets out and just replace the balljoint part???
