I bought the bushes wholesale and the two cost 90 pounds to fit.
The garage said anybody taking any more HAS A HARD NECK
I think the pair of bushes were 40 Remember they are sided
Some garages have tools to fit them.

Renault dealer costs.
window wipers 20 + vat each genuine part
Wholesale 6.75 +vat each

Just revisited this thread to see if anyone has posted some more pictures or a link to alternative parts suppliers.

Interested to read various stories but unable to shed any light onto just why the bushes fail prematurely.

More to do with the state of our lovely pot holled streets combined with low profile reinforced side wall tyres me finks.

Anyone got any 5" rims with nice bouncy big tyres to fit a laguna II ;-)

Anyone got a link to the valeo parts ?

Heres a link to a company who can supply the tool to change the bushes without removing the axle......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Bit pricey for a job you don't want to be doing often.

New bit of advice for anyone with this problem....


One of the non-genuine bushes fitted last November is showing signs of splitting already, after only 7000 miles.

With hindsight, for a bit more inconvenience I could have got genuine Renault bushes for about the same price.

However, my friendly Renault garage are trying to get a "goodwill" replacement for me. You can but try.
