Time to get on with fixing the fucked Volvo.
I had prepared the Mrs to come and collect me when I had lost the will to carry on.
Started with trepidation.
I started removing the old bolts. All three bracket mounting bolts came out easily, I didn't need to remove all the bolts to get the bracket off.
Old and new brackets.
Look how fucked it was after a little investigation.
Suspension mounting bolt out and bracket installed, all mounting bolts went back in perfectly.
I had to replace a couple of bolts that hold stuff to the bracket.
