7103-t special tool.. for lower ball join

Post by moenbeer » 30 Jul 2015, 21:40

Hi all

need to replace my lower right ball joint... Haynes says use tool 7103-t.... googled and found 2 sizes... the car is a C5 2.0 HDI 2004 aut. located in Denmark EU.

There is this kit.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SX027-SEALEY- ... 5d5b3f04a2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

But amazone has a kit with 2 sockets? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sealey-SX0271-L ... B002BFADSQ" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; :shock: why 2 sizes?

So how big for a Citron C5? 50mm?

And I need a new ball joint.. Is this seller any good? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CITROEN-C5-1- ... 0962815138" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

thanks in advance

Thanks for the video - But he only says that he got a kit with 2 sockets.. And he uses the the small one... Is it the small one for a C5 too? ( guess I have to go measure. )
