The Rear Anti Roll Bar Bushes are quite a common thing to fail on these so it seems.

I will get a pic tomorrow for you and post it up.

If you wanted i could also cut another strip of the rubber i used and post it to you if you dont think you have anything that would do. Just PM me your address and its yours.

You just have to undo the 2 bolts on the bush holder and the bush will come out. the bush holder will stay in place on the bottom edge as its kind of in a captive slot.
Then put the sleeve of rubber in, cover in WD40 to help it slide back in and bolt back up.

I had to use a longer bolt to pull the top back into place because the bush is now approx 2mm bigger and needs to be squashed in.

I was lovely not to have the clunk clunk all the time but it was to be short lived due to engine troubles.
