Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Leave it to a garage as they will need special tools if you can buy the bushes ,normally its a complete lower track control arm and the tracking will need checking afterwards ,Special tools required are a hacksaw and big hammer with suitable old big bolts as drifts ,remove the track control arm and then set light to the rubber in the bushes with a blow torch or a BBQ or a small bonfire ,then when rubber is burnt out and the inner piece drops out unclip hacksaw blade and push through hole mount blade ,cut a slot in the metal housing then the old piece will tap through ,take new bush and push a screwdriver through the hole and lightly run the outer casing over a bench grinder to take a knats whatsit off then put in the freezer compartment and leave for a hour ,warm up the track control arm hole either with blow torch or bonfire and then the bush will go in fairly easy with a few taps from hammer or push in with a big vice ,This is the cowboy way of fitting and not the text book recomended way but it will work ,wasnt a commercial fleet truck fitter for a many a year for nothing .No tracking gauges ?? got a tape measure ?? set to equal back and front taking measurement from lip on end of wheel rim not the tyre.Now when i was in the desert and we captured abandoned tanks ??? sorry that was the old mechanics that taught me 40 yrs ago but the dodges to get them going still applies today .
