Volkswagen Sway Bar Parts
Volkswagen Sway Bar Parts
Volkswagen is the largest automaker in Germany, as well as the third in the world. The VW brand has also had three of their vehicles in the top 10 best selling list and still has those cars at the top of the list with the most vehicles still being manufactured today. They also have an enormous line with high quality products, and more specifically, with their sway bar parts and components. The sway bar on your Volkswagen joins the left side of your front suspension to the right side. The sway bar pushes the torsion to the suspension and allows it to retain control under pressure, particularly when steering and taking corners. Your Volkswagen’s away bar is linked to the suspension through the tires and onto sway bar links. The sway bar is positioned to the body of your VW securely with two brackets and bushings. Over time, these bushings may wear and permit unnecessary movement in the sway bar. Replacing these bushings will help to balance back the handling in your Volkswagen. The first thing to do in checking or replacing the subframe bushings is to put a wheel chock behind one of the back tires and lift up the hood. The bushings are situated on the sway bar under your Volkswagen around the lower firewall of your engine. Opening the hood let in some much needed light. Now, lift up one of the front sides of your VW with a floor jack and position the jack beneath the front frame rail, rocker panel or lower control arm. Replicate this to the other side to get the front axle off the ground. If you have questions about Volkswagen’s sway bar parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are ready to assist with any questions.

You are now ready to take your tool set and slide beneath the front of your Volkswagen. Find the sway bar behind one of the front tires where it attaches the bar to the suspension. It is usually suggested to replace both sides and it is easier to take out both sway bar bushing brackets even if you are only replacing one. Some of your bushing brackets are two-bolt that can be removed by taking out the bolts with a ratchet, extension and socket. Some have one bolt and a hinge. Take off the one bolt and swing the bracket out. Take away both brackets so you can move your sway bar up and down. Meddle the sway bar bushing off of the bar with a pry bar to unfasten the slot in the bushing and get it off of the bar. Position the new bushings onto the sway bar by manipulating it with the pry bar. Replace the brackets and secure them with the ratchet, extension, and socket.
