Q: Ball joint fell off

asked by on February 08, 2016

A ball joint fell off.

I would ask one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come to you and replace the broken ball joint so your vehicle will be drivable again. When you book your appointment, be sure to indicate whether it is the front ball joint, or rear ball joint that will need to be replaced.
