    Exclamation How dangerous is this?

    I've been getting a strange noise coming from the rear of my vectra c 55 plate, bearing in mind it has FSH with VX, and only passed its MOT 3 weeks ago.

    I was convinced something wasn't right so I took the rear wheel off and this is what I found...

    Both rear lower suspension arm bushes completely corroded... Must have been like this for years (I've owned the car for 12 months)...

    So, long story short - How much to buy and how easy to replace?

    The last pics shows the other bushes to be fine...

    Not sure on price, etc but that really should have been picked up ?!?!?

    If this is the correct part, then its pretty cheap !!

    Doesnt look too difficult to do.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks mate you're a legends... Totally agree FSH and recent MOT should have been seen... Not happy... In two minds to make complaint and see if VX will fit for free - due to liability they have for my (family's) safety....

    Many thanks...
