Uh Oh! Major surgery needed! "What? No, I didn't say anything bad, It's just a 'flesh' wound". Micra was getting panicky, he would have to have his battery disconnected if he didn't calm down.
This is what he needed. A new constant velocity joint. I hate fitting these and this is why I'd put it off so long.
A replacement suspension arm was also needed, the former one had been 'mysteriously' damaged by a big hammer wielded by a frustrated unnamed party. Micra said this stung as well now!
After several hours of banging, swearing and throwing of heavy tools, thing were starting to look a little improved. Now lets see if I can find something stronger to replace that string!
