    Default Rear Lower control arm

    Hi


    The inner bush of my rear control arm is squeeking really badly. Its the arm that holds the rear spring (item 17 - http://opeloem.com/vauxhall/vectra_c...nsion_arm.html)

    Just wondering if anyone has bought a new arm and if so how much are they.

    Thanks

    Its not item 13, I'm well aware of that arm, I've just redone that one anyway. The sqeak was there before and after changing item 13.

    I've sprayed WD40 on the inner bush of item 17 and it becomes silent again, doesn't last long though, noise appears again within 24 hours.

    You could try doing a search on ebay to see if anyone sells just the bush, like for example the upper arm's outer bush can be bought on ebay even though Vauxhall don't sell just the bush. However, many sellers give little or no information on which components their bushes are for, so it can be a bit of a lottery trying to buy the right one.

    Couldn't find any info on just the bush, I did find the Powerflex bushes though http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/POWERFLEX-...ht_5437wt_1185. I think these are the right ones, proberly be cheeper than a new arm from the dealers.

    And here are the instructions for fitting them http://www.powerflex.co.uk/i/product.../80-1216fi.pdf. Sounds simple enough, but I bet the bolt that goes through it wont move!!!!
