Ford Fiesta Rear Axle Bush Replacement Cost

By on 20 March 2021 / Leave a comment Updated on: 7th November 2021

The Ford Fiesta, synonymous with practicality, driving pleasure and low running costs. The little hatchbacks have taken best-selling car titles in many years since it’s inception in the UK, leading to second hand models becoming fantastically cheap and widely available. As the cars age they generally suffer minimal issues, but one thing they cannot escape is wear and tear or perishable rubber parts like rear axle bushings.

This is a common replacement item thanks to the moving parts surround the bushing and high forces acting across the rear axle. Replacement can generally be done on the vehicle, with the right tools, requiring only minimal suspension dismantling and removal.

New suspension bushings will bring about a return in ride quality, allow the vehicle to sail through future MOT’s and return those great driving characteristics that define the Ford Fiesta.
