This is going into the Espace Knowledge Base.

Feel free to continue the thread.

I did one of these a few years ago on the mk1 espace. I think it is more or less the same though. I did it with a 6 inch bench vice (detached from the bench)I had and I think a large socket. That way I was able to get a lot of force on the old bush and it came out without too much difficulty. I put the new one in the same way I think though I dont remember clearly now.

Final outcome?

What was the final outcome? Is the bush the same for both ends of the trailing link and cross member, any other part numbers/suppliers we would find usefull? I think mine might need doing soon.
PS to moderator...if ewelme no longer on this forum can this be forwarded to him?
