    Exclamation Help needed please - small crash

    I had a small accident today, I slid a little and one of the wheels bumped against the curb at about 15-20mph and now that wheel is set further back than the other. The wheel isn't loose, I changed the wheel to my spare. Here are some pictures, do you have any idea what could be wrong?


    Bad Wheel


    Underneath near bad wheel.


    Wheel on other side thats ok.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    arms i think are about 80 90 from a dealer n the carrier could be another 100 so depends on the damage if the subframe twisted could be lookin like 300-400

    What Pete said - that wishbone is bent. You'll get a pattern part for about £50.

    Yup thats your wishbone gone, time to look for a new one. Try Unipart Car Spares or local ones to you should suffice.
