This one is a bit different guys. It's a good example of what can happen on these old cars. I got brand new lower control arms to replace the ones on my 2004 Toyota Matrix with 221,000 miles. The driver side went just fine. It took some time to figure out what I needed to remove to let me jack up that side of the engine a couple of inches to get the front retaining bolt out, but it wasn't difficult. I barely got started on the other side. It seemed at first like things were going to be so much quicker and easier, and then it happened. The head of a bolt snapped right off. It panicked me at first, and as I looked things over to realize the vehicle was still safe to drive, it just turned annoying. I drove it for 3 months before posting this video to ensure there were no safety issues and see if I could come up with some other idea on how to deal with this setback. This isn't as much of a "How To" video as it is a "what can go wrong" video. If nothing else, I hope you guys get a little amusement out of my failure! Thanks for watching!
