Help please - Lower suspension arms

by Calibra_Mike » Sun May 30, 2010 6:23 pm

Right managed to get one side down today however the good old captive nut on the upright bolt has snapped off meaning I can't secure the bolt, I know I have to drill into the footwell now to resecure it but what im after is a photo and some advice of where to drill and what to look out for... what a pain in the arse!

Take the vertical bolt out and drill upwards through the floor, that will give you the centre point of the hole you need to cut out
