    Done a quick search no joy hence this post.

    My car clonks just once when floored from a standstill, had it over the pit and the left hand front bush on the rear subframe is worn.

    Has anyone done these or have you paid someone else to fit them?.

    Special tools required?

    It needs the subframe out or at least lowering as it goes in from above. It should be able to be driven out and a new one pressed in with use of a threaded bar.

    Ah..BTW..Hi. :)

    Hi

    I have done the frontmost rear subframe bushings. I didnt have the correct puller or tool. It was a pain but i got it. Basically i beat the sh*t ou of it to get it out the top with the subframe lowered. Didnt have to disconnect prop shaft from mem ory but did have a bottle jack under it to prevent too much starin on the donut. There are little bent over lugs on the top of the existing bushing that can be bent back, it is filled with oil and will empty its contents over you while doing it.
    When putting the new bushings in you need rubber grease to help it glide in, one side i did i didnt use the rubber grease and it never really got home fully even with the full weight of the car and more on it.

    When i bought my bushings i bought 2 only to discover that there is 2 in a kit so actually have 2 left if your interested. Genuine MB of course.

    Warm the subframe around the mount with a hot air gun or a gentle warm from a gas torch and the mount will come out a treat. When refitting spray the mount with pledge and use 2 sets of big waterpump pliers (you may need a freind to help you) and pull the mount in eaenly and at the same time. this works for me.

    The oil only comes out if they are removed by the disintegration method :D

    Part no for the ones i have is 2103505808. £35 plus postage cant imagine it would be more than £3 or £4 postage whatever Royal Mail Charge.
