ANH10 07 Alphard 2.4 Anti-Roll Bar Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a "repair as soon as possible" " Anti Roll Bar  Linkage Ball joint Dust Cover Severely Deteriorated Offside Front  - MoT Minor Defect

 

What replacement parts would be needed to fix this and where to get them from?

 

How much is a garage (not London) likely to charge to do this?  Do I need a "Jap imports" specialist garage or could any garage do this? 

 

Any thoughts, much appreciated, like is it worth (presumably changing the ball joint?) getting the other end done at the same time?

Hello,

 

My guess is that most garages could do this.

 

However, Snows of Paignton, Exeter or Plymouth definitely will.

 

Snows, an official Toyota main dealer, are one of the few that will work on grey imports.

 

What about the garage that did the MOT, or is it one of the increasing number of MOT (only) places that test your vehicle but cannot, or won't, fix the failures ?

They quoted 350GBP - which seemed a lot to me - so I didn't let them do the work.  I did wonder if it is something that I could do myself - but I don't have a lift or pit or even a garage.... so it would be on jacks, wheel ramps and axle supports.

£350 to do a drop link link will cost no more than £20 even less than that use axle stands only the wheel needs to come off if a genuine garage do it probably 30 minute job but they will charge hours labour £60 at most plus cost of the link

350 is a lot, but it's cold out there !

 

As it's only an advisory, wait for the better weather.

 

I agree with Lee, most 'ordinary' garages charge about 60per hour, (plus VAT); not worth getting your hands cold and dirty.
