Re: help on replacing clio sub-frame
Thanks for the reply mord, I have got a haynes manual that i refered to.
I bit the bullet this morning and went for it, as i already had the car on axle stands with strut and hubs removed.
managed to do it ok with a bottle jack supporting the engine/gearbox at the dogbone and a scissor jack at the rear. i have it now removed only to find the replacement part i have has a different cross member at the rear, looks to be a 2001
the guy i bought it from said it would fit.
so now looking for another because it will be my son driving it and i want it right. Not too bad to do really, bit of a pain undoing the gear linkage to slide it out but managed. thanks for your help.
