Just one of those nights... Slid on snow and hit the kerb pretty hard.

Now the front right wheel is going into the arch. I can see one steering support snapped but aside from that the rest is OK.

 

Would the snapped column be enough to cause this or has the wishbone been bent to further cause this?

 

I've parked it up on the roadside for the night. It will need recovery to the garage. I managed to move it from a hazardous corner to a main road. d0e891a573a8d2975d7e9887c79e2c9a.jpg18ded4eda0b1e082143ca349955daed2.jpgb31add6b2ecd5567ea28b5b958236c43.jpg

That wishbone looks like it has taken a hit.

I'd check the driveshaft and steering rack too.

Control arm bent, drop link snapped...as Stoney says, needs to get in the air and have a full check over, though with luck nothing else will be mullered.

whilst not a helpful comment in the circumstances, looks like the tyre has some adverse inner edge wear

Well spotted!  That's almost through to the carcass.  £500 fine right there

Thankfully I work for a recovery company so I'm going to see if I can take a truck and recover it lol

Thanks for the analysis guys. And I'll get the tyre changed too!

That tyre is as bald as a Kojaks napper no wonder you slid on the ice.

Trying to be cheap has its consequences!
