    Noticed today whilst fitting my 312mm discs that the front ARB's look like they need replacing. Theres a big gap between the bar and the bush.

    It looks easy to replace. Just one nut by the looks of it. Is this correct?

    bit of a pain as theres not much hand room down there. but pretty easy. just make sure you get the correct size bush

    If you struggle to get the collar over the new bush, use some mole grips / water pump pliers to close the gap a bit more. Or you could get a slightly longer bolt and use that to close the gap before putting the proper bolt back in...

    If you are only changing the bush's just make sure that the plastic lug / spacer isn't split or brocken as you will then need a new bar.
