    Rear Subframe Mounts

    Any tips on how to install these bushings? I spoke with a mechanic and he said you need to take out the rear seat to get to a vertical bolt that passes into the passenger compartment. Is this true?

    To remove or replace the Pin (Bolt) you do need to

    remove the rear seat cushion. It doesn't necessarily have to be removed to replace the sub frame bushings.

    What do you mean? Any detail would be much appreciated as I'm going to tackle this in the next few days.

    The bottom part of the rear seat is held in place by one 10-mm screw in the middle section, just above the tunnel. I've heard that the special tool makes this job very easy while doing without it can be a very frustating experience!

    criteria. I'm a bit Lazy this morning as far as typing goes, there is plenty of information in the archives.
