Re: Renault Clio 1 - Front Subframe Damaged

Subframes do appear on ebay sometimes and arent overly difficult to remove unless bolts are rusty or the one captive cage breaks.

Essentially its dog bone mount off, disconnect sterring column from rack, remove wishbones, front bumper, exhaust downpipe the steering rack pipes and disconnect control arms from hubs, then the 4 bolts that hold it on.

Will be ruddy heavy though.

Ive researched this as my williams current subframe is rusty so i have a spare to goto powder coating then ill be swapping mine
