Changing the Front Lower Suspension Arm

Procedure Continued

Using the 15mm deep offset ring spanner, undo but do not remove the 12mm securing bolt that is secured though the horizontal bush. The nut on the other end of the bolt may be spot welded to the chassis, so only the bolt can be removed later.

Remove the nut from the bottom of the vertical bush, it is not possible to remove the securing bolt at this time as it will foul on the bottom of the vehicle. Once the sub-frame is released it is possible to get the bolt out by levering the sub-frame down.

Vertical bolt

Using the 21mm socket remove both the front and rear sub-frame securing bolts completely from the side of the vehicle that you are changing.
