Rear Passenger side trailing arm?

I have a 2003 X-Type sport 2.5L I was on my way home the other day and I heard a huge snap and foind out that I broke the bottom part of my trailiing arm on the right rear. What is the easiest way to do this job? I picked up the new assemplby and the new bushings are inside it. I was a mechanic for 11 years so it looks pretty simple to do just blots and some cables for ER brake and wheel sensor. Let me know what you all think. Thanks

I had a lower control arm rust on the Left Rear of my 1990 Cadillac. It was kind of hard to get out, for the technician. He had to cut out the part where the shock absorber mounted with a torch.

Of course, yours is already broken. I think that you should be able to do it if you have 11 years of experience as a mechanic or technician.

You may want to take out your impact wrench and compressor to remove the two bolts where the bushings are.

Is the wheel sensor in a hub?

I have a 96 Saturn sl. On the passenger side back tire there is a skinny pole that connects to the tire, well it snapped and I dont know what the name of the part is so I can buy it.


well there are several poles at the rear tire. one is the strut it has a spring wrapped around it. then there is a trailing arm that runs from the front of the tire and attaches to the frame. then there is a stabilizer link rod that attaches to the strut housing and the rear sway bar.

Want to know the relationship between the rear trailing arm and the control arm. If you had the rear trailing arm fixed because of recall then 2 months later they say the control arm came loose and broke...


The recall for your vehicle may or may not have included replacement of the trailing arm. The recall says that the trailing arm is to be "inspected" then it will be replaced, or modified at the discresion of the person performing the inspection. If it was "replaced", it would require the control arms to be disconnected and reconnected. If it was only "modified" there would have been no disassembly of the control arms required. See the picture below. The picture shows the rear suspension parts. Notice that the upper control arm and the lower control arm bolt to the trailing arm. (which is what also houses the hub and bearing with the wheel speed sensor.) I hope this helps you to resolve your issue.

Repair rear '67 Beetle suspension


1967 VW beetles had a type of trailing arm suspension, which gave some amount of independence between the two sides. The axle tube, with brake plate and bearings, coming from the transaxle, attached to the trailing arm suspension. The only part that normally had to be replaced in the rear suspension were the shock absorbers. In 1967 they were NOT Macpherson struts, so they are just bolted on and easy to change.

Parts guy would likely understand trailing arms, or you can call them control arms. Bolts are called bolts but you need to get the right ones from a dealer or junkyard they are case hardened...you cant use the hardware store kind. You can likely get the entire setup really cheap at a yard.
