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.
