    Default Fix one problem - find 3 more!!

    Did the top mount bearings today, borrowed (rented!) ramp space from a local garage for a good price and he let me use some of his tools, namely his 24v cordless impact driver which made things so much easier!

    Passenger side first - went OK except for not taking the drop link off first.

    Drivers side - hmmm, very greasy here, seems i have a split driveshaft boot Hmmm, seems to be a lot of greasy runny oil on the strut. Wonderful.

    Putting it all back together and snapped one of the 3 torx bolts that holds the top mount in place! GRRR!!!

    Need to get both drop links changed too, was just wanting to get the bearings done today, booked it to get the CV boot done for Thursday, not something I will try to do myself!

    I'm guessing a garage would have charged me at least 2 hours to do the bearings which would have been at least £80, was only charged £20 today for 3 hours and that included a wheel balance for the fronts. It is a good idea to get friendly with a local guy and ask to rent a ramp when he is not busy. Cash for his pocket and less cash out of your own.

    Good move getting a shot of a ramp. Who did you ask? I need to do strut bearings and adjustable bushes for upper control arms.
