During wishbone removal I suspect I've bent the front anti-roll bar. Not the anti-roll bar links to clarify, I mean the bar that passes from nearside to offside through the vehicle. After the four 13mm bolts holding the bar to the subframe are removed, is this bar removable by lowering the subframe at the rear only?

Hi

 

I would be surprised if you actually bent this bar as material allows for considerable deflection and will then spring back to shape. What makes you suspect it is bent.

 

Try disconnecting one end of drop link, sit car on flat ground then see if end aligns with end of bar.

Think the only time i have seen them bent is where someone used a jack under

it or attached a towrope to the centre section.

 

I have used a 4ft+ jack handle under the subframe and levered them downwards

with no ill effects.

 

Its essentially a spring so fairly robust.

Embarassingly - yes. That's how I bent it.
