cheers AlBig Al said:disconnect brakes, long track rod off, unbolt the beam and bobes yer unkle (assuming nothing has rusted away!)! Its not 'easy' but a DIY task.
Its tricky to refit on your own though trying to lift and bolt up etc.
you will spend longer swapping the parts from your existing beam to the new and converting it to RHD if not already, getting the spring through the centre section, splitting ball joints, and setting it up again etc, than the fitting part.
depends how mechanical you are. DOUBLE the estimated time you thnk it will take.
Not sure about a guide sorry. Wonder if the Haynes shows how to do this??
Good luck, Al
thats cool, the bug is going to be my daily, once i finally get the mot sorted, so would need to do it in a weekend, hence getting everything sorted on the new beam before i pull the old one out.Mr.010 said:Give yourself a day to do it. I'd not hard and just take your time.
A pickle fork?? is that to go with the cheese and biscuits i'll be enjoying whilst doing the job.. :lol:Tomarse said:I recommend getting hold of a balljoint splitter, a pickle fork and a friend before you start.
Bear in mind that disk spindles are different to drum spindles too.
Also, take the petrol tank out.
