Hi madnoel, I took your advice and rang around and managed to get a quote for 190 inc vat, I thought thats not a bad price so i've booked it in to get done tomorrow. Believe it or not it's still a reno dealer, Benfield motors, just 10 miles from the other.

Thanks for your help.

I've seen the bushes for sale on ebay for around 30 per pair meaning they're would be charging over 300 labour to do this job.
Is this a job that could be done myself, or what should i expect to pay for a non reno dealer to do the job.



They are sometimes a total pain to extract, I had mine done recently at an indi for around 120 all in. He had to cut them out I believe. If you remember the old Mk3 Cortina Void bushes you will realise the issue.

Hi Steve - the 190 inc VAT seems more realistic - a bit closer to the price my local dealer who is quoting around of 176 inc VAT. Seems some Renault stealers charge what they like.

I have a tool I bought to do mine which I will sell to you at a used price...If I am allowed to solicit in such a way through here?

Worth doing and a real easy noticible change afterwards job.

Good Luck

Dude! Why does it sound like you're prostituting yourself?!!
