I know we have told about it already but I want to share with you my situation. My Focus failed MOT today due to rear trailing arms rubber bushes. Not happy about it, but it happens. I've been told to go to Ford to replace parts as the garage does not have proper tools. So I went for a quote. Parts - 34 quid inc VAT, labour - 470!!!!!! (it is not a joke!!!!). I have been told they need to strip the whole rear suspension. But why? There are rear arm bush removal tools, no need to remove the arm, they fit in situ. The same tool is for MK1, MK2 and MK2.5, possibly for other models as well. Should I understand that they do not have it (cost of about 130 quid) or they just want to justify the price telling me some rubbish?
Bought the bushes and went to a local garage. They have ordered the tool and will do the job for 100 quid (tracking included).
If Ford wants to get my money they have to try harder.
