Hi all ,I had an mot fail as the head of the upper pinch bolt on front N/S knuckle was broken off , any way long story short I need a new knuckle , I've seen several advertised but where they list the OEM number I can't find one to match , the code on mine is R8K0407257G-SJ2F .
Has anyone had issues with this before ?.

Can you not try and drive the broken bolt out the knuckle.
Common problem for the upper pinch bolt to seize in the knuckle. Usually end up snapping the head of the bolt off.
Been there done it but with a bit of heat and an air chisel I managed to get it out.
Not the nicest of jobs as access is limited too.

Cheers.

Oh no, mine actually got a tiny hairline crack on one of the clamps on the casting. It didnt go all the way through. Will keep an eye on it to make sure it doesnt get any worse. Been ok for 7 months or so.
