    ive been trying to change the rear carrier bush on my e39 540. Its the bush at the rear bottom of the hub, i have taken off the circlip. i have had a go at it with the lump hammer heay duty vice which cracked from the pressure but it still wouldnt budge. ive had heat from a blow torch and pressure from a bush tool.
    Can anyone tell me how much it has cost them to get them pressed out at a shop?

    I'm not sure which bush you mean but if it is a rubber centred one and you are using a blow torch, can't you heat the bush to get the rubber centre burnt out and then take a hacksaw, remove the blade and re-assemble it with the blade through the hole. Then saw through the remaining metal part of the bush. You should then be able to squeeze it in on itself and pull the bits out with some sniped nose pliers......
