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




What do you think about this video?

Julian McAlister: Hey Edzgarage, I have a question for you even though it might be already posted somewhere in the comments below. What were your symptoms for you to know and change them? I know if I go over a small bump at low speeds, I get a clunk in the left rear wheel and as well there is a little play in that same wheel. I've already replaced my bearing and as well have the RTAB bushings ready to be put in. But after reading, I wondering if I might need this as well or it could be my problem altogether. Your response would be greatly appreciated.

Matthew Patino: Here's the kit

Martin Barragan: anyone looking to buy this kit, its 199.99 on ebay : http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E36-E46-Rear-Axle-Bushing-Remover-Installer-Repair-TOOL/401356238767?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D44757%26meid%3Dc637ac641adb4c4d8f802c442943460c%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D142420783545

jw200: EdzGarage PLEASE say where to get this kit from?

Show some ebay links please.

And this kit basically is able to handle all rear bushings?

TheWawawoach: where can i get those tools?

Rob spear: where did you get the tool kit?

Chas S: I don't know where this kit came from but there's nothing like that on eBay under bushing extractor or installer, just a Ball Joint Remover/Installer but not even a close match to the kit. It only shows a "Punch Type" kit that you hammer it out with. I've had good luck with just a torch, punch and sawzall and 2" socket to hammer it back in. I still have the lower to go yet. These suck actually.

1199 Panigale: would you please send me a link to where I can find the puller/installer kit?
I looked everywhere but can't find one with the diagram.

javier m: you didnt show the upper rear arm control bushing

Andrew hedley: where did you buy the kit from??

1199 Panigale: thanks for the great video, could you please send me the link to where I can purchase the kit you were using to extract them and install them back? thanks again

Andrew Elliott: Did this using the rtab tool supporting the cup with hex keys cuz it was too big and a socket on the smaller side. Removed rubber from new bush to insert and refit rubber once in place. Easy job and chuffed with my ingenuity.

Yunhuang Zhang: Can I use this tool set to remove the front trailing arm bushing?

Harry Hoffman: have you done the inner bushings too?

Oz Striker: If you only want to change the rear upper and lower ball joints, Do you have to remove the 3 bolts at the front of the trailing arm, and lower it down?  Looks like the 2 ball joints you replaced could be done without lowering the whole trailing arm.

Kendo J: Thanks for the "how to" EdzGarage. My upper trailing arm (spring carrier) bushings/bearings are shot. So why not change all the bushing at the same time. Saves me a trip to the tire specialist to align my wheels.

My question is: Did you also use the toolbox(as shown) to replace the outer bushings? Because when i search for trailing arm toolsets. I get 2 results. 1 set for the upper and lower bushings(as shown in your video) and a different set for the outer bushing, consisting of a bigger cup, spindle and some flanges. So now i'm not sure what to get.
Did you also check the other bushings on the lower and upper control arm?

Erail87: Glad I saw this video, I was worried I was going to need a press. Awesome how 2, thanks!

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!

EdzGarage: Thanks for the comment!

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.
