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.
I think you'll find that Renault will replace them FOC on cars under 5 years old.A call to
would be in order.
Avoid aftermarket bushes,especially the ones sold on
.Quality varies wildly.......
