    I wouldn't use cable ties to secure a cv gaiter.

    I have this tool and it is perfect for the job.

    Don't use cable ties.
    Any set of side cutters or sharp pliers will do the job of pinching the clip up tight.
    The above tool is the perfect one for the job tho

    First off apologies for posting in this thread. I’ve removed my n/s shaft but, couldn’t for the life me loosen the 18mm ball joint nut so opted to remove the 3 nut/bolts holding the ball joint to the wishbone.
    My dilemma now is I can’t get the wishbone anywhere near (sits way higher than the ball joint bolts) the bolts (too much tension) to refit meaning I cannot fit the shaft to the gearbox.

    Can anyone help in the best way to align the ball joint bolts and wishbone? I’m just doing this on my driveway by the way.

    thanks
