Bush insertion tool needed urgently T000T0541F

Recommended Posts

Hi all, does anyone have a bush insertion tool part number T000T0541F

 

it’s for the rear arm bushes or the front arm on the pre 97 models.  Would need it posting and happy to rent or buy one

 

thank you

If that’s for the rear links - the poly bushes do simply press in - they go in at an angle then straighten up.

i was close to crying pushing the first one in - and it took some worrying. The rest pushed in about as quick as it took to do the first - once you get brave it’s easy

If you don't use the tool, you run the risk of trashing the bushes.  Not worth it, in my opinion.

Let me check my inventory...

@CHANGES advised me the best way to get them in - takes some pushing.

The place has tried putting them in without and just can’t do it and have said they don’t have time to make a tool.  I was supposed to be collecting them at 2!!!!!!!!!!!!

Found one.  Available to loan for the princely sum of return postage, if you're interested...

I always use a tool , it quicker easier and less likely to damage the bush..     You can do it without a tool but you really need to know what you are doing or you will be damaging an expensive pollybush.     As Sparky said ''Not worth it'' , especially when a tool is available ..
