Re: Problem with rear bushes on my 2.0TS GTV
Thanks for all of the advice guys, it's very much appreciated. I was a bit worried when I found the mixture of rose joints and solid bushes that I had a non-standard, difficult to deal with setup that would cost lots to put right. Sounds like with a little heat and determination I can get the rose joints out and get powerflex in. I have access to burning equipment and heavy duty press if drill and hacksaw method doesn't work!
I now have the method of attack for the rose joints but what's the best way to deal with other solid ones, the same drill/hacksaw or just press method?
Incidentally, I can't quite make out from the thumbnails which way you are supposed to drive out rose joint centre. I can see from remains of external ring that one end is wider than other but it's not that obvious with the joint still in the swinging arm which way you should drive it out. However, one end of the centre piece is a slightly larger diameter. Do I hit it from the smaller or larger end?
