You don’t have to drop the consul my mechanic had the kit and pressed out in situ just be careful pressing new one in a shallow 1mm tapered lead helps your just giving it a small start file off or grind but in with your lemforder bush you will find the angle of the rubber flats inside as per this drawing ..hope this helps ...also if you use this dc4 (as recommended by Menno our Dutch member) it will certainly help get the new control arm spigot into new bush its easier with console left intact as you have something to lever new arm in ..good luck .Thanks for the info. I've ordered some of the QH type as mentioned previously along with Lemforder bushes for the TDi, as well as the press tool.
Just need to try and see if I can do the job without dropping the console now - certainly won't be this weekend with work and the storm we've got forecast, but hopefully, I'll tackle things next weekend as we need to car back in action.
