Hey all.. have a 2013 passat with the front sway bar bracket bushing bolts rusted and broke in half, even one of the brackets split in half!....Never seen a sway bar more difficult to remove..I removed the end links.. whats next? Is there an easier way than dropping the sub-frame or removing lower control arms etc...? I just cannot find a somewhat easier way to remove it.. Should slide out to the left or right somehow I guess? But with the bushing mounts in the way ( not movable) and curves of the bar, oh well? Searched the net ( b7, 2013 passat front sway bar/stabilizer remove/replace etc.. ) and just the sway bar "links" replace are there.. Bought a new sway bar that comes with the bushings already on (permanently).. ( Non movable)..Doing a dpf/egr/ delete also and also valve cover/ gasket kit..I really appreciate any tips/links on this!..I'm 66 now and get burned out and frustrated too quickly after many years in the shop.. Thanx!.. Forrest
