    Hi guys

    Have bought sum powerflex anti roll bar bushes (rear) for my E46 330d.

    Does anyone know if there is a guide on how to change em?

    On the packaging it says no special tools required.

    They are fairly straight forward to change, Jack the rear of the car up and put it on axle stands, the antiroll bar is held on with 2 bolts, see here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...24&hg=33&fg=45 The bush is #2, the bracket 3, and the bolts you need to undo are #4 & #5

    Sounds good to me.

    With a car of the 330s vintage you shouldnt have seized bolts.

    Just be sure to coat the new bolts in 'copaslip' before you refit them....

    Its advisable to use new bolts as well
