S1 ARB bush help

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any tips on getting the ARB bush (lower control arm) off the ends of the ARB. Mine is off the car and the end bushes appear seized on the bar. I've tried multiple slathers of PB blaster as well as a puller which didn't budge it. Time to bring the heat? TIA!

I had the same problem and used my press. They really didn't want to come off!!

I've searched some Opel forums and many ended up cutting them off so I'm in the process of working through the options.

BTW, the bushings are somewhat oval in shape and appear oriented a certain way on the bar. Do they need to be indexed in some way on reassembly?
