How To Replace Worn Control Arm Bushings

Channel: HumbleMechanic

In this video I will show you how to replace crack, worn, or failed lower control arm bushings. Control arm bushing failure on R32 and all MK4 Volkswagens is common. You can press new bushings in to the control arm with either a shop press, or use the tool loaner program from your local parts store. Failure of a control arm bushing can cause noise in the front of a car and poor tire wear. We are replacing the polyurethane bushings with OEM R32 bushings. #r32 #humblemechanic
