Problem with the rear subframe

499 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Em86
I got new rear subframe bushings to my 500SEL. The problem is the movement of the subframe during the process and therefore I cant get the main bolt to the threads.

The car is on the jack´s and there are limited space under the car. Do i have to just force the subframe back or is there something else I should do?

Thanks for the tips!

I would lift the body then align the subframe. Perhaps have helper shove and manipulate a screwdriver in the mounting hole to align the hole so you can insert the bolt on the opposite side first.
