How to replace e36 trailing arm bushings without special tools (and installing POWERFLEX bushings)

Another diy video of me this time i am replacing one of my rtabs with powerflex bushings. No Special Tools necessary although having an impact wrench helps. Tools needed are: 10mm socket, 18mm socket, 17mm socket, breaker bar, drill, 18mm wrench or 3/4 , hammer, flat head screw driver, copper anti seize $1.50. Since you will be under the car, take necessary precautions and wear eye protection when marking the bolt location. They are dirty! I did not video myself hammering away but i did show the proper way to hammer the bushing out. Enjoy and goodluck!

Remove flywheel/stator without special tools.

In this video I show how to remove the flywheel from a 1982 XR200R without using any Special Tools. I learned this trick from watching a video an lawnmowers from the davidsfarm youtube channel.

For an alternative method, you can also use the rear axle bolt to fit into the larger thread instead of the smaller M12, and then hit it in the opposite direction without the screwdriver. In this case though, it did not fit. I know this works for some XRs, but not mine.
