Just been trying to replace my fiesta mk5 wishbones,got all the bolts out of the bushes but cannot get the pinch bolt out which holds the bottom ball joint,does this just knock out with a hammer or is there a tool needed to get it out,i dont want to damage it,any ideas thanks.

The bolt should just knock out after you have removed the nut. It will have rusted in though so it will be tight

All the bolts holding the wishbone in place must be replaced as they are stretch bolts, designed to be used only once.
