Trailing arm replacement
  • Anyone got an idea how I can remove the 3 bolts from the trailing arm? One connects the trailing arm to the body bracket, and two connect the trailing arm to the rear axle. Following the clear instructions in the service manual, I got the shock absorber loosened. I then loosened the 3 nuts on the bolts which pass through the trailing arm bushes. But I could not get the bolts out. I can just about get them to turn slightly (against the resistance of the rubber bush), but the bolts are clearly seized in the inner sleeve of the bush. Not brilliant access, of course, particularly on the forward bolt. Have applied WD40 and some modest tapping with a hammer, but thought someone might have been here before? Many thanks - Lucas

Howdy, Stranger!
