What a nightmare. I was in the process of changing the ball joint on my T32 but silly me I forgot to check the guy at the parts place sold be the right one.

Anyway to cut a long story short I've managed to snap one of the retaining bolt off in the bottom of the stub shaft and it's jammed tight. I've drilled it out but it looks like the threads are damaged.

Anyone got any ideas.........

Could I use a helicoil?

Don't mess about drilling bigger it's madness you will have to fit a bigger bolt so the ball joint hole will need drilled not good .fit a good second hand one and be safe mate
