Hello, I'm Danny.

Can you use your cell phone to make a video or take a picture and upload it here? That will give us a better idea of what you're trying to remove. Will be looking for your response. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Hello again.

Okay, now I know what you're working on. Have you already removed the lateral arm? Do you need instructions on how to remove? Also I've attached the same picture below. Is the bushing I've circled in red the bushing you are wanting to replace. Let me know and I will get back to you. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.

Hello again.

You will need to remove the wheel hub assembly, CV axle, and shock absorber. Here are a few basic tutorials for CV axle and wheel hub removal:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/bearing-hub-replacement

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/replace-cv-axle

After doing so you will be able to remove the trailing arm assembly after removing the bolts shown in the illustration. After removal if you don't have access to a shop press you will need to take it to a shop to have the bushing replaced. The bushing is pressed in and requires extreme pressure to be removed and new one reinstalled. A press is what is required. I've attached the picture step-by-step instructions below for your car. Let me know if you have any further questions about this. Thanks for using 2CarPros.
