  Caution

There is a risk of damaging the threads on the subframe threaded connection to the body.

  • The subframe bolts on the body must not be loosened or tightened with an impact wrench.
  • Always install all bolts by hand for the first few turns.

- Remove the left and right bolts -1 and arrows- for the subframe one after the other and replace.

  Note

If no plastic-coated pry bar is available, wrap a conventional pry bar with adhesive tape.

- The vehicle must be bounced several times at the front axle before checking the camber values.

  • Axle alignment specified values. Refer to → Chapter "Axle Alignment Specified Values".
