Thumbs up Rear Axle bushes


Just for reference.

I've just replaced my rear bushes on my 2003 tourer. I phoned the Renault dealer and was quoted 280, my local garage was a tenner less.

So I decided to look on Ebay , and got a pair for 40 (Renault wanted 80) and the fitting tool for 80. A few hours later the job was done. The fitting tool I will resell.

Well done Chooks.

If you were a subscriber to the Forums you could sell the tool in the forums for sale/wanted section £1.50 for a month or £12 for a years subscription lots of other benefits for Forum supporters.

Just wanted to say many thanks to rstone & everyone else. I had the same problem & wasnt sure what it was. without knowing i could do it myself i would have no doubt spent lots more getting someone to figure it out.
I am definatly no mechanic, job took me & my brother around 2 1/2 hours, 80 for the tool, 45 for the bushes. the tool is going back on ebay if anyone is interested.

The Bushes themselves have come down in Price to £46 + VAT, Complete Kit both sides. Instead of being priced separately.

I think this is a great price for the Genuine Bushes. The ones on Ebay sell for £35 plus postage for non Renault.

However i enquired how much the labour charge would be to fit these Bushes. Lucky for me i was sat down.

£253.18 inclusive of VAT just to fit the Bushes. Needless to say i bid him Good day.
Hi Duran,

I watched a garage perform a rear axle bush replacement 8 months ago. I was going to have a go at replacing them myself.

Tell you's a good job I didn't! I'd have got myself into a right mess!!!

As you probably know the rear axle has to be removed to get to the bushes. The garage them used a press to get the new ones in.

Hope all you guys get your problems sorted soon.

Have you not seen the pictorial guide James showing how simple / easy replacing the rear bushes can be made Scroll back a few pages.

krslim is another one to prove it can easily be done with a small amount of commen sense, a few simple tools and an hour or two to spare.
