Hey all! Got a job or six on a Meriva A 1.4l next week but no Haynes manual. As the A is based on the Corsa C, can I use the Corsa D haynes manual for torque settings? I got 2 x Rear Shockers and N/S/F Hub to replace?

Looking for
Roadwheel bolts (4 Stud)
Rear Shock top / lower bolts

Driveshaft nut
Tie Rod End to steering knuckle
Lower Balljoint to steering knuckle
Steering Knuckle to Strut

thanks in advance..

Any idea where to get a new Lower Balljoint Nut and Bolt, the pinch bolt that holds the balljoint onto lower wishbone (control arm)? It's doesn't appear to be listed in GM parts and the new lower wishbone I got yesterday didn't come with a nut and bolt...

would this do?

Code:

I just replaced the but for a flanged lock but and reused the bolt, which was in good condition.
