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!

Re: Ask Not/What Would You Change?

This is sort of a response to the Ask Not and What Would You Change videos that I’ve put out in the last couple of episodes, it’s not a direct response to either one of those videos but it’s the best title that I could come up with. I think these are interesting topics and should be explored which is why I’ve made this video. Feel free to comment and add your opinions as I love to read about what you’re interested in.

1985 FZ750 Gear bearing replacement (without press or special tools)

1985 FZ750 Gear bearing replacement (without press or Special Tools)

After waiting for the right moment to rent a press or a gear puller I just gave up and decided to hack off the old broken bearing and sleeve it with a grinder (very carefully!!) and heat up the bearing and sleeve while the gear shaft was in the freezer for 2 hours … well it worked out well but I would suggest using a dremmel tool to cut it off next time.

now time for rebuild!

Replace front disc brake pads on a 2001 VW Jetta

This is a step by step video showing how I replaced the front disc brake shoes on a 2001 VW Jetta. Note that the rear disc brakes on this model are significantly more difficult, because the emergency brake is intimately associated with the rear caliper. You need Special Tools to do the rear. I have made some still photos of a rear caliper when I rebuilt it last year. If you want to see those, send me a youtube message.

This video is published for entertainment purposes, and is not to be construed as an instruction guide. I am not a professional mechanic.
