Re: Bush has gone again!! Third Time

Hi mate,

Its just the anti-roll bar bush. Order a new one from shop4parts.co.uk. They are only about 8 quid. Its the whole bit, rubber bush AND metal retainer. No point in trying to find a different bush that fits. And the wishbone doesnt need replacing unless they are saying there is something else wrong with it?

Alan

EDIT - Go on www.shop4parts.co.uk in the search bar at the top type in S4P2447. If you donate to fiat forum you will get access to a code to get 10% off you order.

Plus a new wishbone won't come with the antiroll bar mounting anyway, so you'll be no further forward in fixing it.

Hi the wishbone does not need replacing.

He didnt even have a look at the damn car before he said that :'(

I just described what the problem was and even said it was the bush.

Trying to rip me off I guess.

Re: Bush has gone again!! Third Time

Thing is, most A/R/Bars are attached at the shock via droplinks so if you simply mentioned "the bush on the wishbone", most average mechanics would assume you're talking about the wishbone mounting bushes (and the labour involved in removing the wishbone, pressing out the old bush and refitting, is often greater than simply fitting a complete wishbone).

Re: Bush has gone again!! Third Time

And on may cars you cant get the bare bushes so have to fit the wishbone. Not always the mech's fault. Though the bloke who just pushed the thing back is a knob.
