306 hdi P bushes

Post by KP » 22 Oct 2012, 00:08

Is it possible to replace these without taking the wishbone off the car?

Just wondering as the passenger side one is gone on my 306 causing the wheel wibble at certain speeds and knocking over bumps but from what I can tell the part can be ordered on its own but I'm not sure if its doable by driving the old one out or not whilst on the car as I haven't done one before.

Any advice from anyone on this??

Also if anyone has a pp2000 near Warrington or Manchester I'd be grateful if I could borrow a few minutes of your time with it :)

Have you heard the old joke about the obstetrician who retrained as a mechanic?

Anyhow, your answer about the arms: NO

However! You can unbolt the balljoint on most 306 arms, meaning the arm itself is readily detached from the chassis without undue grief.

The cheap arms are cheap; bear that in mind before sweating it out on a repair.

Thats the thing Addo, I dont see the point in replacing the whole arm when its just this one rear bush with the problem as the rest looks good. Strange as you'd think all the rubber would deteriorate at the same rate but apparently not :)
