Customer Question

Hi Shantal being a retired engineer and having many years as well in repairing and maintaining cars, motorbikes etc I think I have solved my problem and will be able to change the bushes without a special tool,which I seems to be a bit elusive as BMW do not give much away, but we engineers are pretty inventive when we come up against the odds there's not much we cannot solve if we put our minds to it but I would appreciate if you could come up with someone who knows where we could get hold of the special tool for compressing the bush so they can be inserted into the wishbone cheers \\\\mike
