3 Position a jack under the subframe to support it.

4 Undo the subframe-to-body strut retaining bolt at the rear end. Loosen the front bolt and swing the strut round to provide clearance for anti-roll bar and bush removal. Repeat on the other side.

5 Lift the anti-roll bar eye bolts and disengage them from the anti-roll bar (see illustration).

Note the location and orientation of the eye bolt bushes and washers. Remove the anti-roll bar.

6 Renew the anti-roll bar if damaged or distorted. Renew the bushes if perished or worn.

Refitting
7 Refitting is a reversal of the removal procedure. Check that the eye bolt bushes are fitted with their conical face towards the washers, the cover faces of which must face away from the bush mountings.

8 Do not fully tighten the retaining nuts and bolts until the vehicle is free standing and has been bounced a few times to settle the mountings.
