It's pretty straightforward with both OE type bushes or with Betaboyz replacements.

Take care with the anti-roll bar. It has to be restrained.  There is a special tool but I use a loop of rope tensioned by a length of wood which you "wind" up to stop the bar spreading.

Has anyone replaced their rear transverse link bushes, any advice, ? not sure if it's something that can be done without specialist tools.
Haynes advises taking them to your nearest Lancia dealership.!
I was in the process of changing the rear struts but the bolts were stuck fast to the bushes and need replacing.
They are the adjustable transverse links, not sure if that matters.?
Cheers Paul

Yes shocking PR...filmed in a car park, looked unprepared and no clarity on the steps taken and that the issue has been fixed at the factory. The beginning of the end for Lancia in the UK captured in one report on a much viewed news programme.

Good article  - I particularly like the link to the ITN news footage. In one of the showroom bits you can clearly see a spider with a 'SPYDER' number plate.

A dreadful bit of PR too - 'We hope this has eliminated the problem but I would be foolish to categorically state that it will never happen again'. Technically true perhaps but...

Not so much the whole dash but the faux wood panel in the centre - it has 5 switches + the clock one of which looks like a rear window demister. The spider only had 4. 

Of course I can't find my owners manual now to check!

spiders with the rather elusive hardtop have the demister

Hi everyone
Please see this feature on the Beta Saloon featured in The Telegraph a few weeks ago.
It features James Ross Sinclair's very nice Saloon.
