    hi i was checking my suspension over and found one of the front lollipop bush hole thread is damaged. it is an m10x35mm bolt. wonder if i can put 40 or 50mm bolt in there after cleaning the thread. Are them sleeves replaceable? or possible to tap one size up there ?

    I think the part I'm referring is called a rubber bush (excuse my ignorance on car parts). My vehicle, a 2003 (52) 320d SE Touring has been regularly serviced, runs well, and does not suffer from any leaks, either inside the engine bay or underneath the car. I was just doing a check of fluid...
