Front anti-roll bar-to-lower arm compliance bushes - renewal

Note: The compliance bushes must be renewed in vehicle sets, therefore the bushes on both sides of the vehicle must be renewed at the same time. If plastic covers were not originally fitted between the dished washers and the bushes, suitable covers should be obtained for fitting during reassembly.

1 Remove the anti-roll bar.

2 Using a thin-bladed chisel or screwdriver, carefully prise out the compliance bushes from the lower arms.

3 Tap the new bushes into place using a suitable socket or tube drift (see illustration).

5 Refit the anti-roll bar.
