Subframe bushing removal tool Australia

After 515,000 km and maybe ignoring their state of repair for a few years it's time to replace the bushings on my rear subframe.


Does anyone on here in Australia have the tool for this lying around anymore, and would be willing to sell or lend it to me?

I did try and buy one from ebay, but after putting the order in, the seller messaged me to say that for unknown reasons the package was returned to them, and they had to refund me... besides that one, there doesn't seem to be many of these floating around any more.


Hopefully there's someone on here with one of these tucked away somewhere!


Andy

I have an unused one but I'm in USA. Can you order from Amazon? That's where I got mine. I still have the bushings also. A deer killed my car before I could do the repair.

You could see what shipping would be from 53405. I could probably fort it into a much more compact box than the fancy case.

I had two e53 at the time and now e70 and f10, I don't know if the tool will even help on the new models.

Hey, thanks for the reply!


I did manage to find just one seller on Amazon that still had them, and a few on ali express, but all very expensive for a single use tool. The days of picking one up for $60 (at least in Aus) are over sadly.


USPS should be able to send it in one of their flat rate medium boxes, just waiting to hear back from the ebay person to see exactly why the other one bounced the first time.



Will PM you about how much you'd be after for it

I have a Kommen Tools set here in NZ but it weights a metric crap-tonne and shipping over the ditch would be insane.

I did wonder whether that might have been the reason that USPS turned the ebay set around on me.


It was just a used amazon set, but without knowing how much it weighed it's hard to estimate freight cost. They were sending it with the ebay international shipping program, so I had faith it would be okay... Clearly not!


I'll keep you in mind though, it's entirely possible that paying the freight from NZ works out the least painful option

Alright, I've ordered the tool off Amazon (ouch) so if anyone in Australia needs to borrow one in future, let me know
