DIY BMW E46 XI lower control arm and bushing replacement left side
I've looked for videos on the BMW E46 xi series on how to change the
control arm and bushing but haven't found any at all. So I made the first
out of 2 videos on how to change the left and ride side. This video is
about changing the left side. the easiest way would be to remove the
plastic skid pans, remove the tire. there is 2 bolts holding the bushing
on, remove those bolts. then remove the 2 bolts holding the inner tie rod.
once that is done remove the nut on the other ball joint and use a pickle
fork to split it from the strut. ONce that is done it shall fall off. use
a puller to remove the bushing and hopefully you have a hydraulic press to
remove the collar or purchase ones that are ready to bolt in. install the
opposite way you took it off.
