Default Please help with ball joint replacement!

So I'm replacing the ball joints on my saxo. Got a new suspension arm placed and the mechanics took the old ball joint off. Was hoping i could do the rest myself so its cheaper. How do i go about doing this? Ill attach photos of the state of it lol



Want to get the car rolling so i can get it on a flat bed!

Well they're pressed in so ideally you need a press.

If you've got a bench vice you could maybe use 2 sockets (one deep one and one to push the ball joint in)

Most people these days just replace the whole arm.

No other way to do it.

Generally find the wishbone will be pretty corroded by the time bottom ball joints require changing and you need to weigh up whether to just get a full arm which is probably your best bet with no press. Only a few more nuts and bolts to remove.
