Remove the front wheel nuts and wheel.

Undo the nut to the ball joint.

Give the pillar an assuring tap with the magic hammer to loosen any corrosion,

and pull the ball joint out.

Undo the left wishbone bolt.

Undo the right wishbone bolt. If the spring is preventing the bolt from coming out....

....you can jack the lower arm causing the spring to compress slightly....

....or prise the gap between the spring wider.
