    Ball Joint

    Hi Guys,

    Could someone let me know, how much you would expect to pay for a ball joint for an 04 a3 and how long to fit one?

    Do you mean the balljoint on the front wishbone?

    If so, expect to pay Ł10-15 for a pattern part, and probably take 30 minutes to fit if all goes smoothly. They are pretty easy to do!

    go get genuine one matey,i fitted one for a friend last year a good make (Q&H) and the 3 pins wudnt line up 100% and had to use a bit of force with a small hammer (ouch!) still it did the job but it cost him Ł13.00 to buy,personally i dont use non genuine parts and in my opinion id of paid Ł24.26 from audi inc vat.
