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.
