I'm sure we could sort summat out. :good:   Might help us hard working admins if you could stick with the same topic instead of posting up a noo wan on the same subject, please. :)  Also makes finding contributions much easier.
 
Sorted now. :good:


I've been meaning to say and this seems a good time to do so. There is a problem with the trend to start these mega threads, as in 'What Did You Do To Your ******Today' in that good information gets swallowed up in them. They almost become a forum within a forum, but without the orderliness. Same with Facebook posts. A forum is a resource as much as it's a hangout.

Many thanks Studley, that's absolutely fabulous! 

 

And I'll consider myself suitably and severely reprimanded for doubling up on the topic! 

 

Cheers mate,

I've just done linkage service to my '05. Quite easy job as none of the parts were stuck.

But I found that shock absorber has eaten nasty looking grooves on the aluminium thingy. Probably the shock absorber has been tightened too tight.

 

I could not find torque values for linkage bolts, except for connecting arms 49 Nm.  :help:

 

EDIT: Torque values: for shock bolt 40 Nm, front frame bolt 40 Nm, connecting arms 49 Nm.

I'd check you're not missing a spacer there, or the wrong one is fitted. There shouldn't be any contact between those two bits.

I thought too that there should be a spacer between shock mount and arm block to avoid contact. But the exploded view drawing does not have any spacer (part 20 is oil seal).

Could it be that you have the wrong pin fitted? (31 in your diagram). No matter how hard the nut and bolt are tightened there should be no contact between the two components. If the shocker is grinding on the aluminium rocker arm there is something wrong.  :unsure2:

Hi all,
Been trying to service grease these links and was quite positive about the rawlbolt method.
Just bought some m6 which are the smallest that you can get as qfar as I can see.
Trouble is the frame hole is Bush is smaller than the other two which just pushed out.
The m6 doesn't go anywhere near fitting in the hole.
Am I missing something obvious here?
I am sure it will come out if I can just get some purchase on it as it was greased about 10k ago.
BBloody ridiculous piece of design this 😔

You need the correct type of Rawlbolt, the tubular one not the cast.

 

See pix and comment in this post by me back in 2014:-

http://www.carpe-tdm...=29452&p=291710

 

I've got other posts later in that thread on page 2 illustrating another type of expanding insert, and a fix for the problem with the Rawlbolt.

Thanks Steve, will try and source one.
Frustating thing is this would be a 1 hr job if you could just push it out from the right hand side!

Nah, can't get the bugger out. Tried all sorts of bolts just can't get ay purchase on the inside of the Bush. Whatever I use just pulls out. Must mean that it is really stuck.
Very frustrating, just going to have to reassemble and hope for the best.
Might try the easy out tap method next first though..

To be more accurate you stand the chance of breaking off one or both of the lugs on the frame. That's really serious whereas swingarms are easily replaced.

You need to read all the posts, there are several threads with relevant content IIRC.

I got some from Toolstation that fitted perfectly (the first one from B&Q wouldn't fit). PM me your name and address and I'll stick one in the post to you. I had to buy a pack of ten so have plenty. I coated liberally with plusgas, applied some heat with a heat gun and then gently tapped the end of the rawlbolt with a bolt from the rhs and it just eased out. Ali

Hi guys, thanks for all the tips and offers of help had one last go today with a sleeve anchor from selco, plenty of wd 40 and heat from the wifes hairdryer.
It is out!! Had to gently tap from the blind side but once it was moving all was good. Bit of corrosion on where it passes through the left lug. Any longer and i reckon it would have seized up totally.
Phew.... very pleased with myself, time for a beer 😁
