MOT FAILURE - REAR AXLE BUSHING

Hi!

My car failed its MOT/ NCT due to a bollixed rear left axle bushing, so I need to replace it.

I have been told it is easier just to replace the entire axle. Can you confirm this to me?

If so, can you tell me how to go about changing this?

Thanking ye all!

It is easier to remove the axle from the vehicle if you are replacing the main mounting bushes (axle to chassis) as they are pressed into place. Your local library or autoparts store will be able to supply a repair manual with step by step instructions and diagrams inside !
