Hi again, it's almost as though this mondeo enjoys the attention, as it was being driven off to be painted, the drivers side front spring decided to snap, most of the way to getting the spring/strut assembly off, however the bottom ball joint is proving to be difficult to separate, I've read that it can be done without removing the bottom subframe to get the bottom wishbone off, am I missing a trick as we've loosened off the bolt clamping everything together and tried using a jack to lift the wheel hub up so the bottom wishbone isn't at the bottom of it's travel?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated,

Peter

On further investigation, it's from 2004, the engine light is on, its low on oil and coolent and it also looks like the oil filter needs changing! The idle is a bit lumpy, similar to a big CI supercharged dragster engine I once heard, and when driving along it feels as though something is catching and pulling the revs down, regardless of how much throttle is applied!

Ok, mechanical stuff sorted, new wings and bumper have arrived in primer, bonnet on the way, however, while fitting the wings ive managed to put fingerprints on one of them, whats the best way to clean a primed panel, without taking the primer off, can I just use water?

Dad's just had a look at the pedal and says that how it was apparently, its certainly got more play than in my fieata! Running it up as I type, and all seems well, the engine returned to idle just fine, it hasnt overheated, and the A/C rad isnt punctured afterall! Now to get some body panels put on!
