car: 97 R-reg A4 1.8 138k miles
2 years and 15,000 miles ago, i had the problem with front lower control arm
bushings on my car, causing it to groan and squeak everytime i hit a bump or
turn the wheel. had both front ones replaced - oem part
Now the problem is back! only on left side at present.
question is: can i just replace the bushings w/o changing the whole arm?
will this be an MOT failure in the UK?
thanks to all
Nope can't replace bushings and ball joints separate from arm :
Common problem with the A4. Drill the nylon with small drill and
inject grease with a needle point attachment for grease gun. Use
needle adaptor for gun to inject grease into the rubber ball
