any idea what the torque setting is for the front antirollbar bushes and does the split section of the bush face the car interior
i have removed the old bushes so the roll bar is now loose can it be tightened down in any position with the new bushes or does it have to be tightened down when at a certain angle

Looks like the slit faces REAR

There is no mention of torque spec, just use new self locking nuts...
Should be a straight-forward torque based on fastener size I should think.

Thanks rear as in towards the interior
Ie towards windscreen
Does it matter what angle the bar should be at before fully tightening down the bracket

Hey there!

Though not mentioned in the MB literature as far as I can see, I'd try to have the car sitting at rest [supported by the springs] before securing the fasteners..
I should think that approach would serve best interests.

Cheers,
M.
