Hi Snowman, I have had the same problem with my lag for the last couple of months. After spending a couple of weeks ringing round trying to get prices to get the bushes changed (I say trying to get prices, as some garages admitted they wouldn't even attempt the job!).

Eventually I bought a pair of new bushes plus a tool to facilitate removing the old ones and fitting the new ones from ebay , there are plenty on there. Am having them fitted this week, just before MOT time.

PM and i'll send you the sellers details on ebay , very helpful guy with any questions you may have

I've got to be honest,the bushes shouldn't cause the tyres to wear on the edges.The axle is solid,so if the rear tyres are wearing on either edge then the axle could be damaged.This is something that has been reported on some late Scenics and Meganes.

I'd get the rear wheel alignment checked before spending out on bushes that you might not need.

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

When I had excess wear on outer edge of rear tyre , worn tyre out in 6,000 miles , it was due to a faulty supension damper. Supension damper replaced on both sides , new tyres and alignment checked all sorted. The bushes used to be a problem on the earlier models but the ones on the car at the moment have done 90,000 and no signs of wear so maybe they have improved the bushes.

When ever Renault fit new bushes they are fitted with uprated ones as Renault improved them as the originals were to weak so you should not need to search for uprated ones.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

hi i have just had my axel bushes replaced today by a brilliant garage i use, the bushes cost me £35 each and£180 for labour which considering they took the rear axel completley off i thought was great.i drove the car home and i could not believe how much better it was, well worth the money. BASHA
