View Full Version : Trouble getting subframe back on, holes aren't lining up??

Dropped the subframe some-what to change the rack, took out 3 bolts but left the front drivers side bolt in.

I've jacked the subframe up to the correct level but the holes don't line up??? Am I missing something or is the frame bent :S

Check the radiator is seated properly.

Pretty sure its seated right will have to check but it was seated right when i lowered the subframe, had this problem when I changed the box as well, took 2 of us to do it, 1 to push the subframe as hard as they could and 1 to try and push the bolts in!

Hmm yeah have to have a look I think it might be bit loose thou, I tried taking it off before and it just spun so :S

the bolt closest to the bulkhead? you'll need a spanner on top of it to prevent it spinning i think

shouldnt tighten anything up till there all in, goes for pretty much everything you do IMO
