Punto rear suspension

My Punto 90 ELX has just failed MOT due to "excessive wear of rear suspension radius arm inner bearings". This is on both sides. I understand (now) that this is a common problem on Puntos. Anyone any idea what it should cost to fix?

Bearings/bushes do not appear to be available separately, arms weigh in at up to 100 each depending on the model.

Cinqs suffer from this too, but Larkspeed sell powerflex rear bushes for them (although not listed...), have a look at www.larkspeed.com - drop them an email and they may be able to help.

Hi Puntogold

As far as I am aware Fiat made modifications to the bushs or the arms on MK1 Puntos would be good to get in touch with a Fiat dealer and see if its was on a Fiat Recall
