I Need A Hand

I bought a 2005 Mini Cooper. Was supposed to be running and driving but it is not. Passenger side CV is needing some work as the car was hit in the front and the passenger side front wheel has been pushed back. I flew in from Colorado Springs to pick it up and drive it back -- and unfortunately, that is not possible right now. It is at the Mini dealership and I will be banging on it tomorrow -- starting at 8am -- to try and make it roadworthy. I brought some tools with me from the Springs but certainly not enough. If anyone has a free hour or so and has ideas on how to pull that wheel back into alignment, I could sure use the help.

You mentioned where you flew from, but not where you are needing help at

Seems like a bad plan to hack the suspension & then take off on a 2000 mile trip.

Did the seller mis-represent the car?

Might be better off to get your money back & call it a lesson learned.
