Hi. I have a problem with my rear suspension bushes (between the chassis and the rear sub-frame / final drive carrier). All four of them are coroded real bad, and clearly need replacement. I've looked through the bently manual, and feel quite comfotable about the removal /replacement of the axle carrier, but it says nothing about the bushes. Would I need a hydraulic press to get them in/out? Or could you do it by hand?

Any help would be much appreciated.

I don't think you need a press for the rear bushings. I just had a huge hassle with the lower ball joint on mine and ended up renting a press and getting it in about 30 min. So, I would recommend you get one just to be safe, in the US I can just go to autozone and rent it for free. Good luck.
