  1. Hey boes, So i accidently replaced the A/T transmission filter with an engine oil filter, I damaged to old A/T filter in the process so i cant put that back on. Will an engine oil filter be fine with Automatic transmission fluid going through it? Cheers

    Sorry for not updating boes. I won! After bashing away with hammers and getting nowhere (was using a 20 pound sledge and a 5 pound mallet) I borrowed this: 30 seconds later the job was done On another note, I just purchased these for nicks: Enkei 92's 14" 5x114 Unsure of width or offset, will have more info when they arrive, at the price they were im not too concerned though.

    Have tried drilling, chewed through the drill bit and hardly made a mark, might try again with a carbide/diamond drill bit or something along those lines. I gave it some solid whacks, gave up for tonight though, should make some progress tommorow, all things going well.

    Yea i see the error of my ways now lol... I was going off advice from someone who apparentley knew what they were doing. Putting it in a vice would mean removing more parts, which I am trying to avoid as I dont want to open a can of worms

    Ball Joint Seized

    I'm no mechanic so you'll have to pardon me if I get a few terms/part names wrong So I decided to change the upper ball joints on my crown as the grease boots were split and pissing out grease. The drivers side popped off easy, the passenger side, not so easy... The ball joint connects to the (control arm?) by means of a spindle and a crown nut. After much bashing with a ball joint fork and BFH had made no progress, so decided to cut the ball joint from its spindle. I am now left with a piece of metal stuck inside another piece of metal and no bloody clue how to get it out so i can replace the ball joints. Any suggestions?
