T reg 206 1.4 , offside radius arm has a lot of play, never done one of these before and wondered if anyone on here had and what sort of job it is.???

Usually water ingress into the torsion-bar end bearing - creates quite a mess in there.

Most garages seem to plump for fitting a good secondhand rear suspension unit - new units are dear and the car can't be worth much now.

Thanks for the replies. I take it then that it is a difficult and expensive job to do a repair.

The local breakers want £150.00 for a s/h unit and I wondered how a repair looked against that.

ted,,i'd say its not so much the cost/job of the bearings,its more the fact that if there is lots of play then its unlikely the beam will be any good.

the 2nd hand route is problably the easiest(providing its a good unit).

recon beams etc i have seen for around 250+vat.
