I fitted the part from eBay and it lasted 4 months!!!!
I have now ordered the Lem' part... Would be here tomorrow???

about the same amount of time as mine!!
i now need to replace both parts because the original had the idler a rubber bush & steel collar inside, was a idiot to remove! failed mot due to play... the 2xlmf idlers are an idler with a hard rubber bush only.. im unsure if the police upgraded mine for a heavy duty one from standard?? anyway the rubber bush is now like an hour glass internally & the metal of the idler has started to dig into the shaft!!

Just a quick question with im guessing 100 replys...

is it best to fit these polly bushes with rear subframe in position side at a time or roll the hole lot out completely??

Easiest please!!

& can someone maybe do photo by photo directions for there removal possibly when work is been carried out to help others..??

Have you been using quality idlers? Lemforder is normally recommended :y

Cheaper (and more expensive!) pattern ones have been known to have too much play out of the box :o

They both were O.E quality parts from LMF Vauxhall in leicester the 1st one really was crap even with the bolt maxed up still felt loose so they sent me another one because car was awful to drive for a week!! the second one was ok but now its worse than the original one that was on it since new.. Have you seen the price of the genuine ones!!! i know the mounting bracket is knackered because its got a heavy worn mark scored in it now!!

Hi all, ive replaced my steering idler twice now & its knackered again!! killing a tire in the process in under 4000miles!
i was wondering why its been wandering all over the road i thought it was my rear subframe bushes i know are breaked!!

The o/s wheel nice & tight, n/s wheel has a mind of its own!!
approx 1" of left/right movement & i can clearly see the idler lifting up & down, so i recon its the bracket/mounting that is worn out..??
ok car has done 190000miles!! 144000 of hard police use! im guessing also the roads (potholes) dont help & running 8.5j 19s arnt going to help either...

So can anybody help?? pref by sending me the mounting with idler still attached & un disturbed... how much???

Oh also rumbling from my N/S Rear wheel but no play/noise when in air but rumbles when driving/cornering is it easier to replace bearing or complete hub..?? unknown if its a sealed unit like the fronts... cheers all  :y
