I've just had my Laguna 1.9dci 54reg in a Reno dealer for a service and they've just rang me to say the rear axle bushes are almost detatched from housing, they've quoted £360 to replace them. I've told them i'll shop around.
I've seen the bushes for sale on
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.
