1 Answer

Clonking Noise have just had my 1999 CR-V serviced & MOT'd and it was brought to my attention that i needed to replace an anti-roll bar link at a cost of £60.00 fitted.I collected my car with new MOT and paid the bill,this was 31/12/08.i noticed a couple of days later that when i drove over any uneaven ground a quite loud sort of clonking noise was heard,i returned the car to the same garage for investigation only ot be informed that the other anti-roll bar link now needed replacing at another cost of £60.00! What do you think,could this problem happened because they only replaced one side?

If you take into account that both links are of the same age. It is not uncommon for the other side to fail. Personally, I install links in pairs to prevent such a problem. Most components that have a right and left side usually wear out or break around same time, because they have the same # of km's on them. Brakes pads and shoes are sold in pairs for this reason. I don't know why more auto parts are not sold in pairs for this reason. I don't feel the garage did anything wrong, other than trying to save you some money by only doing the side that was broken.

Hope this helped you out.

How to replace front anti roll bar bushes

Frank, you haven't said what make or model your car is.
However, have a look on the following link - it will take you to Youtube:
how to replace anti roll bar bushes Google Search

It's not a particularly difficult job. It entails loosening the drop-links/tie bars that connect to the torsion bar - the anti roll bar, then loosening the bolts holding the anti roll bar in place.

Just be aware that the anti roll bar is in effect a 'spring' and is under tension. Loosen the retaining bolts gradually, slowly.

replacing the bushes is straight forward. Once you have removed the anti roll bar just lever the old rubber bushes out with a screwdriver and push the new ones into place .. then reassemble everything.

In the most general of terms you would do the job in a couple of hours

Mot guys say i need new ones ?what are they & how much is a reasonable cost?

Actually the only item I've ever used that was called a roll bar pin was a steel pin that went through a "swing out' roll cage section in a race car that allowed easy entry. BUT, I'm going to take a guess...Are you talking about sway bar links? If so, if rubber bushings are worn or center bolt has broken you need to change them. They limit body roll on turns. If you are talking about a different component, the same applies. any bushing that is found at the ends of steering or suspension parts needs to be in reasonably good condition for it to work properly. If in doubt, have the mechanic show you what they want to change and have him explain why. If they wont or cant, it likely does not need work.
hope this helps you.
