T4 Post Icon Top ball joint tool alternative

I think this May be an original post regarding this subject. But we'll see.

My wife used to own an Elise. And I changed the ball joints which required me buying a purpose made tool for extraction,
The ball joints are scarily similar to the T4 upper ones and from "quickly" measuring up the tool against the fitted ball joint I think it just might do the trick.

I seem to remember the tool for the Elise was about 45 at a meet somewhere, and if it works I shall report back on here.

Hey there, I was looking for someone who I may be able to loan a tool from in he Sheffield area. If all goes well would I be able to loan for some beer tokens?
Cheers and good luck using it

the elise tool


tool I use



the only issue is the adjuster that the ball joint sits in.

you will need a puller or a hacksaw or an angle grinder.

yes the ball joints look similar but fit the oposite way around.
