    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default would this be easier(arb bushes fitting)

    When changing the front ARB bushes,would it be easier to just undo the 2 bolts nearly all the way and just slide the old one out and the new 1 in without having to take any of the bolts out?

    Of isnt it that easy?

    Do the bolts for the brackets go into a welded but or do you need to try and get a spanner underneath on the nut??

    Sound thought it looked a bit awkward if it wasn't! Anyone know the bush size on a 1.9 cdti pre face Sri?
