    I don't have my car in front of me so I am looking at the diagrams. I always thought that the mounting points for the wishbones were welded in, but it looks like they bolt on:

    Also, it sure looks like that bracket for the e-brake which is interfering with your bolt removal looks like that can be unbolted as well, or is it welded?
    You'll probably have an easier time unbolting that than the mounting point.

    Ok, yes they do bolt in, the wishbone mounting points.

    Yes but what about that e-brake bracket? That should unbolt I think.

    Its an easy fix. Leave the wishbone on the fixing bracket and unbolt the bracket from the subframe. It'll just pull out when the nut is removed. Make sure you keep the shims so you can put them back in the right place.
