    My Fiat Coupe had exactly the same problem - it was probably the same guy who desgined the Ferrari one

    Thanks Tim. This job needed doing on mine & I paid to have it done while the car was in for other work. Now I see how easy it is I whish I'd had a look myself.

    Its a doddle - there you go i've saved you a tenner! Once you have removed the nut and washer you just press down on the spring loaded arm (which aligns the spline) and they slide off.

    HI Tony,
    This is my motivation to some of my recent threads, people pay too much for some basic works, that with a little help they can do themselves, or at very least know how its done - so that they can negotiate on the cost.

    If anyone lacks the balls to do this repair then Dick Lovett are selling a brand new arm on eBay for 100. Linky

    Default 456 too

    In the States they've just found that the 430 arm (despite having the same part no as the 360) is flat not curved and fits a (for example) 456 without fouling - perhaps someone with a 430 and one of the others handy could look & try if this applies to rhd (65849400)

    This makes no sense to me. As far as I can tell, it doesn't matter if you're lacking balls or if you're just plain stupid. Wouldn't you try to bend the old one first no matter what? If it works you're home free. If you aren't strong enough or if you break it, then (and only then) would you buy a new one. Or am I the only person who thinks this approach makes more sense than buying a new arm as step one unless, of course, you're too busy to work on your own car.
