has anyone removed the bushes out of the rear subframe and can point out the technique before I start destroying it with fire etc.

Sorted the first one.

They have a metal plate that’s attached to the middle that hinders the usual rubber killing methods.

So I chopped that in half so I could get to work with the drill mashing up the rubber. Then this is what it looks like in the middle.

Then it’s the same as any other bush. Cut the sleeve and pop it out.
