    They are part of the assembly and should not be removed. Fit genuine bushes only NOT poly bushes.

    Stick them in the freezer for few days and use jubilee clips to squeeze them in one saint on here did.

    A bit of fairy liquid can help. If using a press then do it slowly with a little rest every so often.

    That is the correct part number and the bloke at the garage is a muppet. Special tool needed to compress bush as it it being pressed in. What a bloody plonker he is.

    Yes. The O/D of the bush will be around 61.5 mm the I/D of the radius arm hole is 60mm. Clean it up and apply some grease. Put jubilee clip on about 3 mm from end of bush and tighten until bush enters hole once engaged in press remove clip and press in.
