Hi all,

Just had my annual MOT failure and after some advice on what I need to get (and the best place to buy!)

FAIL: Ball Joint has excessive play [2.2.B.1f]
ADV: Front suspension arm has slight play in a pin/bush [2.4.G.3]

These are on both sides.

So, what am I actually looking at, is this something to do with the 'lollipops' I keep reading about? I presume it is as its the front suspension?

I guess I might as well sort out the advisory part as well seeing as the arm needs to come out of that bush to replace, no point doing it twice?

Some links of what I need to buy or how much I am looking at paying will be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Ball joints are not a replacement part, unfortunately you have to buy the full control arm (wishbone).
Buy Lemforder(LMI) or Meyle HD any other manufacturer is just false economy!

Meyle HD kit £275 from All German Parts tho it appears to be cheaper if you buy the Lemforder parts individually :confused

You can ring them for confirmation :thumbsup

Some other suppliers taken from another post
All German Parts for Meyle or Lemforder or as dd posted C3BMW for Lemforder, not sure if GSF and ECP do them too? :thumbsup
