Front Subframe..!

Hi,
The wife's Bravo has failed the M.O.T. Rust holes on the subframe close to the wishbone mount.

Looks like a reasonably straight forward job, question is :- Is the subframe bolted and bonded to the floorpan? Has anyone done this job. Any input would be appreciated.

Cheers,

John.

Re: Front Subframe..!

ooo...i had this with mine, but luckely i spotted it before the MOT

its a hell of a job lots of bolts.

2 big bolts holding it in each side at the front, then 4 or 6 more at the back then the rear gearbox mount also bolts to it and so does the steering rack. can be done in a day.

its not welded on anywhere so its a straight forward job i did it by myself so it not that much hassle its just time consuming


She's a monster soon to be revealed

If they didnt want it stripping they shouldnt have used nuts and bolts

Re: Front Subframe..!

they are just bolted one its a 3-4 hour job with someone helping you working on the floor. on a two poster lift you can do it in about 1-2hours
