Q: Possible broken axle

asked by on

I was in an accident and now I think the axle is broken on the front right side of the car.

This vehicle needs to be towed to a body shop to evaluate repairs. Hopefully the damage is not extensive, but they are directly linked to insurance companies who can get you on the road again.
