    Anti roll bar drop link replacement

    Hi all,

    Had a grinding noise when going round corners one way, finally found what it was on the opposite side to where I thought it would be (hours wasted on the wrong wheel :-P). Basically the anti roll bar drop link has sheared off from the wishbone on the passenger side.

    My question is (as the haynes manual only talks about the links once the whole subframe is off) can you put a new droplink on the end of the anti roll bar with everything in situe, or will it be too difficult to get a spanner in?

    Car is a 96 P astra estate LS. Also, if anyone has EPC or other means, could anyone tell me the part number for a new droplink for the front passenger side?

    Thanks all

    Martin

    mine did exactly the same, snapped link grinding on the drive shaft when i went round corners(also sounded like it was the opposite side) very easy to do, 1 nut on the joint and 2 nuts underneath the arm where it goes through. about 14 from vauxhall and took me half hour to do.
