Upper And Lower Rear Control Trailing Arm Bushing Removal And Installation BMW 3 Series E46




What do you think about this video?

EdzGarage: @Needmorehorsepower Thanks Scott! The right tools can defiantly make a job much easier! I got the kit off a guy on eBay for $200 and the instructions that came with kit was the guide I was showing.

ghtowagon: German bushings?

foxdmulder: Thats a very helpful time saving set of tools you got for bushing removal/replacement. great job 5 *****

EdzGarage: @TheSaturnV lol I know you could! Thanks!

TractorWorld: @edzgarage wow i love Audis

swizz85: Out of curiosity, what where the signs that led you to replace the bushings?

NNMTECH: trying to help you dude... BMW part number 33326775551 - ball joint

NNMTECH: that's not BUSHING... it is BALL JOINT.

mbyr31: @edzgarage See.. Ya learn something new everyday! Thanks much Ed!

EdzGarage: @florinel181 I paid $200 for the kit off eBay. I don't know what other bushing, other then the ones I did, the kit can do.

ghtowagon: @edzgarage Yea German cars are the last to have parts STILL MADE in the country of origin. Unlike every other car, Its all Chinese. Arent those Mann filters German too?

EdzGarage: @radracer713 Thanks!

EdzGarage: Thanks for the comment!

EdzGarage: Not sure.

EdzGarage: @ERE815 Thanks for the comment! I don't know much about your car but I did find out some info that might be helpful. I will PM you with that info tonight.

EdzGarage: @supersesqui Thanks!

EdzGarage: @ghtowagon For a German car!

flomofo1: Can this do the inner bushings as well? Or just the ones on the hub? I can avoid buying a press if this is the case because I bought poly for the other bushings and the other bushings are also easier to remove...

Chris P: You are correct. These are "rose bushings" (English) or "heim bushings" (USA) - they are not a ball joint at all in the traditional sense (a ball joint allows 360' articulation), though the principle of design is somewhat similar. The exact same bushing is used in the Vectra-B and the Saab 9-5. I'm doing mine next week!

oney135: gotta hate worn out parts

EdzGarage: @foxdmulder Thanks! The tool is a great investment.

EdzGarage: @mbyr31 Thanks Matt! There are no dumb questions, the lugs are bolts, no studs.

SuperStormtroop: Nicely done, the rubber lower bush can also be replaced with the same upper ball joint, it is exactly the same size and it's a worthwhile upgrade as it provides better stability and is used that way on the e36 & e46 M cars.

tomduncan1970: Great instructional Video Ed!!

Sears Suburban Backyard Tractor Club: I've see that hat!

EdzGarage: @zeoneozero Thanks! There are more to come. Be sure to look at my past videos on this and my other vehicles.

EdzGarage: Your bushings should be good unless the car was raced a lot. I don't know what the job costs at a shop, but it wont be cheap... maybe $500.

zeo neo: nice video. please make more!

accord03: Where did you order your bushings from? Are they good quality? I need the same job done for my car. Thanks.

EdzGarage: @milkphish2 I'm not sure.

myk4bmw: Ed whats the part number for the bushing tool? This is on my todo list! ty sir.

EdzGarage: @Chooman69 lol Yes you have!

EdzGarage: @oney135 Yea, you have to expect it though as the mile pile up.

marek0086: @edzgarage~ i think its madness to use flex/twist rubber style bushings. All cars should come from factory with pivot/sliding type urethane bushes!

EdzGarage: @tom58c Thanks Tom! these the right tool is the only way to go when you can get them. It does handle like a BMW now!

ShawnCFarm: @edzgarage Hahaha your lucky yours is in really nice shape. We get some in that have not been looked after at all and none of the bolts want to come out.

Needmorehorsepower: wow great video ed you make it look so easy,where did you get that kit and do you mind me asking how much it cost,that purple grand am i have needs new bushings installed.Also it looked like you had some kingd of a guide to tellts to use to pull or install

EdzGarage: @TractorWorld lol not yet! Give me some time I'm sure I will thought. Thanks for the comment!

TUTOMIA: I have a 2000 323i with under 65k miles on it. Is it normal to need the rear control arm bushings replaced? I haven't noticed anything different about how the vehicle operates. What would the approximate cost be for this type of job? I know nothing about this stuff and don't want to get taken? Thanks in advance for any info that you may provide.

EdzGarage: Thanks!

M Hur: Ed, First of all, outstanding work. I would never have a problem when I work on it..I appreciate it. I'm gonna buy that tool kit you've shown us, but I'm not quite sure it's capable of replacing inner upper&lower control arm bushings. Does the manual say anything about inner CABs? Please let me know. and please keep up the great work! Thank you ///Matt

supersesqui: Nice vid. well done.

Frank Masiello: Nice job, I have 2003 325i that needs the upper and lower trailing arm bushings and like the way you did yours. where did you purchase the tool kit to do it and the kit number. thanks keep up the good work.

ShawnCFarm: BMW's are not the funest cars to work on sometimes lol.

ghtowagon: @edzgarage Darn. Whats the scoop with those filters anyway? Are they the standard German car oil filter? Ive seen people with VW's swear by them too.

EdzGarage: Thanks for the comment!

EdzGarage: @swizz85 The rear of the car felt unstable... like driving on ice. The problem was the trailing arm bushing, but I replaced them all since I was there anyway.

EdzGarage: @3DGEM3 You could always sell the tools on eBay when your done with them.

EdzGarage: @2LateIWon Thanks!

EdzGarage: @redneckmikey69 Thanks a lot Mike!
