Hi there. The hardest part is knocking the old ones out. I dropped the beam out of the mounts and knocked a chisel between the bush and the beam. It gets about half way down and pushes the bush out. It's a pain pushing the new ones in without damaging them if you don't gave the tool to do it. best way round that is fit polly ones. About £35 of eBay takes 5 mins to them.
Hope it helps

Thanks are the rear axle bushes also known as rear suspension bushes, I was led to believe you have to get the new bushes machine pressed back in, is this right.

There are only 2 bushes on the rear. 1 each side.
I have changed no end of them in fiestas, pumas and ka,
They just need to be pressed or knocked back in. I tend to put loads of grease on them and knock them in with a big hammer and a bit of wood so the don't get damaged. But like I said the easiest way to re fit them is fit polyurethane ones.
They don't need any pressing at all. You just put two bushes in and a crush tube through the middle and jobs done
