Fitting front wishbone bushes
« on: August 26, 2020, 09:36:31 AM »
Hi,

I am having trouble fitting the new upper wishbone bushes (the ones with the ribs on) into my freshly powder coated bits.  Fitting the first one was easy, but the second it tough with the pivot shaft in place.  I have tried with a hydraulic press, but keep bending the bush sleeve.  Any suggestions on how to approach as I feel I am making this harder than it should be!

Thanks

Mat

Are you maybe trying to push them deeper in than needed. I seem to recall I had the same issue. They are not suppose to be pushed in until the flange touch the wishbone. If you look at the 360 image here you can see how they are suppose to fit https://webshop.fiat500126.com/en/chassis-und-steering/front-axle/transverse-link-front-_one-piece
