Bushing Size - Lateral Subframe Support

Post by hendriknz » Thu 24 Aug, 2017 9:49 am

Hi all,

I have need to install a replacement lateral subframe support rod in my W108 280se 3.5 and have sourced a second hand one.

The bushings are a bit worn though. Does anyone know what i the correct sized bushings and a link or part number to obtain the same.

Call MBspares, they sent me one for my W111 instantly.

Hole size could be larger, otherwise I suspect it is very much the same.
