Anti-roll bar popped out of bushing?

Post by Ciaraneng »

My anti-roll bar has looked like this on the near side for some time. I have an MOT (CVRT over here) coming up. Is it a problem and if so is it just a case of loosening off the adjacent bracket and giving it a whack?

Is that a rub mark at the base of the anti roll link bar where it maybe making contact with something else

Hard to tell if the Bush is worn but probably is since it drifted out of place.Image

Yes, just rubbing against the speedo cable though so not moving anything

Know what you mean, the speedo cable does seem to be secured in different areas, mine is cable tied to the spare wheel carrier rods.
