Default Sportwerks Turmoil Question

Whats the best way to replace a lower front arm on a Sportwerks Turmoil Buggy? My arm snapped in half, and i got the e-clip off the front, and i now noticed the e-clip in the back. And theres no way i can get at it! So, should i just take the whole front diff off?
Any advice you be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Blake

You should be able to get the rear E/clip off with a bent sharp piece of metal it tricky but if you hold your tongue right you 'll get it. Its easier than pulling the diff.

Thumbs up

You could simply remove the whole front clip off with the 4 large screws on the bottom of the chassis and the front chassis brace. Remove those and the front clip comes off the chassis, at that point you can pull the lower hinge pin out. But OF COURSE, always refer to your owners manual or the manufacturers website if that doesn't work...

Once you have the front e-clip off, just take out the 2 screws that hold the aluminum pivot mount out from the bottom. Then just slide them both off the hinge pin. No need to remove the rear clip.
