Some idiot has clamped my car. My space, I own it blah blah - the moan goes on...

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has some good pictures of the suspension arm / wishbone assembly....... :) :) :)

Different type of clamp mate, unfortunately.... it's a chain jobby which has been thread around the wishbone. Got a feeling that it may just be one bolt but i need to see a pic so I know what I'm doing.... I wish it WAS that simple!! :)

Hit the local industrial rental place, get a big old stillsaw or grinder, and return the clamp to it's owner, in 20 pieces.

there are some on here if you have a look inthe sticky section . as far as i know as long as you can get it off ans give it back undamaged then nothing further will be done in law.....though the might try and return and reclamp.

i would imagine you need to have the wheel off to ge the wish bone or the axel stub'hub assmebly off .

100% right or if you break the pad lock off and return the clamp & buy a new lock and provide clamp owner with the keys nothing can be done

Mate, if you could would be fantastic. I've given them til wednesday to sort themselves out (in the meantime, i've wedged my motor between two others to stop the [email protected] towing her away or adding another clamp).

It seems to be one horizontal bolt which doubles as a hinge i think... that making any sense to you?

Does he actually own the space?? Corporate or residential?

Has he damaged your car in anyway?

No, it's my space!
I even had my permit on display as they request. It's vindictive as I have cancelled the companies right to clamp here and they are obvioulsy milking it. The contract (which I never signed nor agreed to) ended today, and they haven't even been to take their signs down yet....

:wtf:

Cool, the situation is this (excuse my cack drawing skills).

So, if i undo the bolt to the right circled in red, will i be able to unhook the chain? Will it cause any damage to my car and do i need any special tools?
