Rear to adjustment buch stuck
Posted 10 January 2009 - 11:59 AM
I`ve just tried to have my wheels all alligned but the guy in the garage said he couldn`t do one of the rears as the bush used to make the adjustment has siezed. he said I need to replace the whole arm as the bush isn`t supplied on its own.
I`ve had a look myself and the cam bolt dosn`t rotate as it should instead when you try to turn it the whole bush tries to rotate, which it can`t cos it fixed to the arm.
The new arm is £30 but in order to fit it I`ll have to remove the cam bolt which I can`t cos it`s siezed! I`ve seen elsewhere that people have had to angle grind the bolt off don`t fancy trying that although I do have a small grinder.
I`ve tried penetrating oil to free up the bolt but no luck so far.
Any ideas how to free the bolt to allow adjustment?
How to easily remove the bolt / arm to allow a replacement?
PS its a 04 Reg Mondeo 2.0 TDi if that helps.
