Hi all
Have a 2004 2.0 td santa fe.
The trailing arm bushes have failed.
How hard are these to replace?
Dose it need special tools to do so?

Also the old girl sprung a diesel leak in the pump.
Had this replaced but now the clutch slips.
A local mechanic says that the duel mass flywheel has had it but I find it hard to believe.
The clutch is not high and there is no noise from the flywheel that would indicate that it is failing.
Had a tdi mondeo that the flywheel failed and it sounded like there was 2 engines under it.
But the clutch didn't slip.

Thanks in advance

Did they get fuel on the clutch disk?

On other cars that I replaced the bushings you either just buy new arms with the bushings or take the old ones off and have them pressed out or burnt out.

Hi.
The pump was leaking diesel all over the gear box/clutch housing

It pumped 1/4 tank out in about 20 miles.

Been like it now for over a month since the pump was replaced.

Hi, this seems like a little discussed problem that I have just posted about today.

I've had 5 Santa Fe's. 3 of them had slipping clutch AND leaking Fuel Pump. The O-Rings perish on the underside leading to premature Clutch failure. I'm just putting it here so others can see it.
