Big Job? Little Job?

My recently acquired 147 needs the front anti-roll bar bushes replaced, the D shaped ones. Thing is I don't trust the garage I bought the car from to do it even though its under warranty, so is it a big or little job? Someone mentioned the subframe...

The usual problem is that the arb is corroded, so new bushes just get wrecked.

You're in Wiltshire though - go see Smaky (Swindon).

Replaced the anti roll bar on my 156 a couple of weeks ago, bit of a nightmare job. Took two of us around 5 hours to do. You have to drop the subframe to be able to get the bar out........ Worth it though - no rattles from the front now and passed the MOT yesterday.
