Lower Control Arm Recall

So im having the same issue as many other people with there LCA making that popping noise when accelerating over bumps and while turning. I have been trying to get my car to the dealership but my dealerships service is always busy and when i call to make an appointment they always tell i will need to leave the car there all day. kinda seems retarded to leave my car there for the day and have to get a rental just to tighten some bolts.
so my question is does any one know exactly where these bolts are located? i want to just tighten them myself.

Yeah I had the same problem only worse!!! My dealership argued the fact that my car is Canadian...LOL. And all the others on here are American...So your popping noise was different than mine...LOL!!! So after having my car in to get looked at about 6 times I told them that I'm not taking my car back until it is fixed, so they took my advise and did what was listed on the site & guess what.......



IT WORKED!!!

i dont have a probblem taking it in but they wont give me a rental i have to pay for it. and i cant go all day without a car. im on call all the time. also when i bought the car the left turnsignal never stopped blinking after i made a left turn, so i have to manualy shut it off every time and the same deal with that they want it in all day. im thinking about finding another place to take it to.

I just had my LCA bolts last weekend. They ordered them 2 weeks prior and when they arrived the dealer called me and told me to bring it in. I dropped it off at 7:30 am and it was done at 9:00 am.
