Hope nothing else major damaged.
Sorry to hear you were ill for 3 weeks, and better. I'm sure you feel a different ill now.
Lol honestly after all the shit ive been through being sick making up college work looking for a new job, this didnt really btoher me lol. Im hopping the dealership takes the blame for it and repairs it no idea if they will, but im pretty sure it was the ball joint bolt not being torqued correctly causing this. I usually work on my car myself ive changed the clutch on it before, but I had such a crazy oil leak I couldnt track down and it ruined the new clutch kind of a nightmare but the engine had to be split apart and I certainly couldnt do that out in my garage, so into a shop it goes and then this happens
