ANTI ROLL BAR MOUNTING BRACKET

Post by Dennis Nicholas » Wed May 22, 2019 11:12 am

The anti roll bar bracket is held onto the wishbone+damper mounting bracket by one long bolt and a second shorter bolt to damper mounting bracket.
Both of my bolt heads are welded to the mounting bracket. Is that standard? It just made it a bit more difficult to take off the bracket without damaging the threads and meant having to also remove the anti roll bar link from the bracket.
Thoughts?

From memory, I think that's standard? That's what the parts list illustrates?#

yes it is standard AFAIK.

you can cut the corner of the shock absorber bracket to help access to the bolt for the droplink.

I've always unbolted and removed the drop link to the roll bar then removed the bracket from damper mount plate on my 6B without any real issues


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

did you try to remove the lower shock absorber bracket without removing the shock absorber with it ? I think it is possible on one side and yes it is very tight. The workshop manual recommends removing the bottom bracket with the shock absorber attached.

the bolts are welded as standard to the bracket, there is no need to cut the bottom shock bracket mount as the bolt that would afford access to is fixed to the bracket. one end of the drop link would need disconnecting to remove the drop link bracket completely

i didn't know they came apart. I thought they were welded together.
