If that's the one the part is cheap (I've got a few but if you can pick one up locally its not worth posting one), and the hardest part of the job is getting that long bottom bolt out of the hub carrier - they can be exceedingly tight. Before you start, get the car jacked up and thoroughly clean off all the rust and crud that has accumulated on the bolt where it passes through the two webs on the carrier, and give it a good soaking in plus-gas or something similar. Once youve loosened the nut on the bolt (which can be very tight), try rotating the bolt whilst applying suitable percussive encouragement to move it laterally. Be prepared to find that the bolt is unusable when you finally get it out.......Oh and make sure you buy the correct replacement transverse bar - front and back are different lengths.......
