Rear Bump Stops Replacement

Rear Bump Stops Replacement

October 31, 2018 2 By Yeti Admin

It was while my new discs and pads were being fitted last week that I saw the condition of my rear bump stops; both sides were knackered.

I am returning to my trusted mechanic today to have new stops fitted

I’ve opted for Febi Bilstein bump stops. If you want them too, they are here on Amazon

It’s 8:04 am when I pull up outside his workshop for the second time in a week.

And just as last week, he’s waiting for me. Raring to go.

My STK (Czech MOT) is due in December and this would definitely have aroused the examiner’s interest!

My mechanic removes the shock absorber to get at the offender.

And I’ll be back on November 13th for timing chain kit and water pump replacement

If your bump stops are shot and you’re not keen on paying dealer/garage/mechanic marked-up prices for them you can always buy them yourself and either fit them yourself or find a decent mechanic to fit them for you.

Definitely take a glance underneath your wheel arches at them – they’re an MOT failure item!

Good luck.
