Re: marea saloon 1.8 elx subframe bushes

there are kits available for punto subframes - which consist of a sort of rubber cup which is bolted over the bush to stop any play from occuring. these might also do the job on the marea..

Also be very careful about this. My knock from the rear turned out to be front anti roll bar bushes and drop links. it wasn't at all obvious that they were worn. It flew through MoT! I was going to try some crushable exhaust gaskets to tighten the sub frame bushes but did not need to.
