Hi,
First things first - 2001 Punto Mk2 JTD

The bush has gone at the rear mounting point of the lower wishbone on the drivers side. (ie the mounting point under you foot if sitting in the drivers seat) As a result i get a really anoying knocking noise and squeaking when accelerating and braking. My question is, does anyone know if you can just replace the bush, or if you have to replace the whole arm? I have looked on places like spax and can only find the forward bush, and then on places like shop4parts where it comes all as one unit with bushes.

Any thoughs welcome.....

Thanks
Alan

Brother has just replaced his wishbones on his HGT and it was the entire arm which came with the bushes... £85.00 from Fiat and I get 15% discount as a regular customer! :D

Cheers

yup, comes as one as the bush is glued/boned to the wishbone & mount.

its not a hard job, wd40/plus gas the bolts the night before, jack, crack bolts, replace

hard part is getting the antiroll bar back onto the wishbone. imaginative use of a trolley jack and a stick works for me (y)
