Oo-err this aint working out very well........
First up, the N/S went straight in (1 hour) then the O/S lower control arm bushing was seized....had to be drilled out....then the 'easy out' was used.....then got a new "Ford" [spit] bush....this was too big....ring Volvo....you have to buy the COMPLETE LOWER ARM.......how much?.....£130.00.....so waste of time drilling the old one out....all now scrap.
It's that bit flapping down, holds the coil spring and has 'that' bushing at one end:
Me: "err how long have you spent so far on this job?"
Garage: "quite a lot to be fair"
Me: This is Day 2 now, will I need to borrow "the loaner"** again tonight?
Garage: "no should
be ok if the control arm turns up this afternoon, we're turning away MOT customers because your Volvo is effectively stuck on our new expensive ramp"
** The 'loaner' is a 20-year old Honda Concerto, auto, have you ever driven a car and felt genuinely scared?......
