BMW Bushing Parts
BMW has always put their passion for high quality and advanced development first. Their reliability has been credited throughout their history and is also shown within their bushing parts and components. The lower control arm bushings on BMWs often become worn and faulty over time. This results in loose steering and vibrations when you brake at high speeds shaking in the steering wheel. The control arm bushings are positioned in the back of the control arm and are connected to the chassis. To replace these bushings the first thing to do is loosen the lug nuts on the front wheels. Then lift the front of your BMW with the jack and take off the front wheels. Take off the two bolts holding the control arm bushing bracket to the chassis with a 17 mm socket. Now, push out the control arm bushing with a gear puller. It is a god idea to make a small marking with a punch and a hammer so that the gear puller has can be positioned against it. Push the bushing out by tightening the gear puller. The bushing will probably tear when you take it out, but use the gear puller to push the rest of it out. If you have questions about BMW’s bushing parts or components, the FCP Euro team is here for any support.

At this point, incise two slits across from each other in the outer ring of the worn bushing that will still be on the interior of the bushing bracket. Operate a little, air-powered cutting tool that will fit in the bracket to make these slits. Attempt not to cut into the bracket. Push the bushing ring out by beating a chisel onto it with a hammer. The ring should subside from the two cuts and push out of the bracket. Put the new bushing on the bracket and line up the raised spot on the bushing with the arrow on the bracket. Pat the bushing to get it going into the bracket, then use a vise to push the bushing all of the way in. Center the bushing in the bracket so it is even on both sides. Do the same for the other side. The bushing and bracket need to now be put in as promptly as possible. The bushings will begin to set up inside the bracket and your BMW needs to be on its wheels when this happens. Saturate the bushing where it links to the control arm with soap and water to help with the installation. Push the bushing onto the control arm by hand or with your gear puller. Line your L-shaped bushing bracket up with the holes in the chassis, then thread on the bolts. Tauten them down and replace the wheels and lower the vehicle to the ground. Make sure not to drive your BMW for a few hours to permit your bushings to stick correctly. FCP Euro's logical and qualified call center team is obtainable and able to answer any questions you have.
