Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Wheels and Tyres - Front suspension - Wishbone Arm
It is not advised to put these bolts nuts in upside down its a safety issue, have replaced a wishbone on one side its a fiddly job the rear most bolt being the worst what you have to do is drop the bolts from the rear most subframe and some of the bkts and stedy bolts located half way up the wheel arch , if you get a lever bat in between the subframe and chassis you can prize the it forward and down to give you enough room to remove and replace the bolt .
Note that the same design suspension Nissan has the bolts going in from underneath with the nut on the top......Is a non unwinding type nut with a squash at the top so it takes a little pressure to do it up...Can't see any problem with the same on a Laguna as long as the right type nut is used...will be doing my Laguna soon...have just done my Nissan Micra which is pretty much the same design suspension just miniaturized.
