Q: Control arm wishbone cracking

asked by on

According to an inspection, the both the left and right lower control arm's wishbone are cracking. And the right rear door does not lock.

Hello. The inspection of the lower control arms are accurate, but what is cracking is actually the bushings in the wishbone’s lower control arms. This is a common problem with Audi cars. A certified technician can help you with the replacement of the entire wishbone lower control arm as it would be necessary, since the bushings aren’t sold by themselves
