Front suspension drop link
#1
Hello, 

My Berlingo is suffering some age relate wear and the bushes on my drop links are all split and dry of grease.
Easy fix as it is just wheel off, undo the two bolts and either replace the rods complete or fit new rubber boots. With the price of these you may as well replace the links. I however had a couple of spare rubber boots that fit so i regreased and replaced them.
One thing that took me a short while to work out was how to remove the bolt as it just spun in place withouth loosening....on a closer look i saw you had to hold it in place with a 5mm allen key as you undid it!

Good work! Most of the time there is also play on the bushes. I buy always new rod's and add some additional grease on the bearing. From factory, it's a very minimum of grease.

I've always found them a pig to remove, often resorting to locking a narrow pair of long nose mole grips onto the threaded part behind the nut on the grease cap side to get them undone - the small allen is usually rusted out or rounds off immediately. Well worth replacing the drop links with new though.
