Dear Expert,

Fitting a panhard rod on Renault Megan Scenic 2003.
The two fixing bolts and nuts are rusted and are spinning when trying to loosen.
How would you replace the panhard rod given this problem?

Get new bolts. Grind off the bad bolt/nut to enable you to remove the rod.

Once the bad bolt has been ground off at the nut end and the panhard rod has been dropped - is the old bolt easily removed without dismantling any more of the vehicle?

Unless you don't have sufficient clearance/space to work, otherwise there is nothing much you need to remove.
