'98 614d
hello to everyone.

noticed this morning that the left shock absorber was dangling freely this morning. from a closer inspection the lower end of the shock the bolt had sheared off just after the shock and just before the wishbone.

now for the main problem.. the leftovers from the bolt that is sitting in the wishbone doesnt want to move very much. i assume that hole is threaded to some degree at least.

there is a nut on the other side that tried tightening to move the bolt but only managed to go so far before it was too much, especially with the wheel in the way.

would anyone have any suggestions as to how the leftover of the bolt be removed from the wishbone?

thanks

Dmitry

Looks like you'll need to remove the whole shebang... Then drift out the remains of the bolt
