    Does anybody know how difficulty to replace the Rear Anti Roll Bar Bushes? I have the one in the right making some cranking noise.
    Thanks.

    Just two bolts to undo, best undone with car on the ground as not to place a load on the ARB .

    I'm sure we must have guides on how do these maybe not per se for the 6th Generation but the principles are the same.

    The best way to change it it´s to stay with the car on the ground?
    I will search for the bushes in the net to find the best price, thanks.

    I meant raise both sides so all of rear is suspended or do it with all four wheels on ground (you'd need a 4 post lift to do that).

    You can't jack on side at a time and do it.

    WOW @Fiskekutteren that is the cleanest underside of the 6th Generation I have ever seen! hope you managed to sort it.
    2 bolts on each and its easy to replace. I need to do my front ones, but they will be fine for now, gotta sort my fuel leak out first.

    haha @Harvey, i think you mean @jostree :Wink:.
    My underside is definitely not as pretty as @jostree Accord. But you are right the underside of his car is very pretty. I do not think Portugal uses salt on their roads like the UK and Denmark :Grin:.

    Agreed, you should see the state of mine underneath, looks like it's spent a good time of its life under the sea

    I could lick my tongue off that underside, looks new! Let us know how you get on and what bushes you fit.

    Anyone in the UK doing this job, it can be nice and easy, but corrosion can seize the bolts over time. They are small bolts so if you give them some welly it is very easy to shear the head off them, leaving yourself with a messy situation.

    So.....if they resist it's best to back off and use some heat. Or if you don't have any, wait until next time you visit a garage.

    I did it myself and was a little to aggressive with some of the bolt, but luckily it could be drilled out.

    But i do not think it is going to be a problem for @jostree Accord. :Smile:.

    Thanks, I have a help from the weather in Portugal and some times I put some paraffin to protect.
    I´m waiting for the bushings, the one´s that they send were not compatible with my car.

    Did they send the front ones by mistake? instead of the rear ones.

    The new ones arrived and I already change it, it was very easy. The bushing near the exhaust has a little trike but easy to.
