  1. Hi everyone, New to this site, I am from New Zealand. Recently bought a 205 CTI for my son and we are working on it, as its been in storage for over 20 years Question is I need to replace the Anti Roll bar D bushes. When I look at the bushes looks like I can drop the sub-frame a little bit and get the bushes out. But the new ones I see on Pug1 or any other sites, seems to have a just a hole and no slit in there. Does this mean I have to remove the whole Anti-Roll bar to replace the bushes. Any advise would be greatly appreciated Thansn Nithy

    ARB bush colours

    Hi all, Should I be concerned that the bushes on my ARB are different colours as one's orange and the other's blue? Ian.
  3. Hi all, This is my first post on the forum, but I have used it extensively over the past few months since buying my 1.9 gti. On every occasion the forum has come up with the goods, however this time I'm really struggling... I have just bought a rebuilt rear beam from a company as the old one is knackered. I hoped it would be a case of simply swapping the old one for the new one, but upon receiving the new beam I noticed that the whole flexible joint housing was missing from the crossmember bracket. The whole beam has been re-painted so it's hard to tell whether it has been ground off or whether it never existed in the first place. I have spoken to the company that reconditioned it and they said that it arrived from the previous owner like that. I've tried looking all over the forum and the internet and can't find any other examples of this. All I can find are articles on fitting solid mounts or refurbing worn mounts, but I've got nothing to fit the new mounts in, so I'm assuming this isn't normal, but please correct me if I'm wrong. So rather naively I'm asking if the flexible mounting bushes are essential or whether the new beam can be bolted on without them? If the answer is no then I guess it's going back to where it came from. Thanks in advance Adam
