    Default Peugeot 206 rear wheel wobble - dead torsion bar bushing?

    Hi everybody, I was pulled over the other day and told that my rear wheel was violently wobbling. I have made a video of testing the play by putting weight on the suspension here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWcI5sJtULs.

    It looks like it may be a worn/collapsed bush/bearing inside the rear beam which holds the trailing arm.

    Here's a diagram of what seems to be happening:


    Has anybody seen this before? Anybody know what part needs replacing and how difficult it's likely to be?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yes, that would most likely be a rear beam trailing arm issue (not a torsion bar, btw).

    I think mr bern may be able to help you with this one.

    His driver's side rear wheel certainly looked interesting while driving along at speed.

    Aha, good to know it's something that does happen under normal circumstances. Just for archival purposes, I've found this video, which seems to show exactly how to replace the worn bearings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48eP5KZdSFs.
