There is a how to somewhere on here, I used that, it really is easy........

I can sell you a tool if you are interested?????

Good luck

Steve-0, I bought my bushes off of Ebay for an 03 Plate and paid for an hour 1/2 labour at a local garage. So I'd forget Reno if I were you. Bushes + labour = 60 ish?

we paid 230 quid for rear bushes at independent garage, however they gone again four months later, luckily the garage said they would replace them for nothing as they are under warranty!!
watch out for more future problems for eg
springs!, Heater failure and burn out, electric window drivers side bust, these are all apparently common recurring problems!

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.


I think you'll find that Renault will replace them FOC on cars under 5 years old.A call to RCS would be in order.

Avoid aftermarket bushes,especially the ones sold on eBay .Quality varies wildly.......

I replaced th bushes in my 01 plate Laguna for the MOT in January. They had already been replaced once before.
I had to change a tyre the other day and noticed that the bushes are already completely shot.
I bought them off e-bay (about 38), sounds like it is worth paying the extra to get genuine Renault ones next time.
