I will be taking my rescue Aero back to std oem rubber. It currently has a very soft yellow poly bush. When I got the holder free I expected the bush to come away in 2 pieces but no-It seems a one piece affair. It looks like I just drive it through and the soft lips will curl inwards and go through. That correct.

From memory - it's 12 years since I polybushed my dogbone - it is a one piece bush that pushes in or out as you describe. It may be difficult to push it out as the edges will resist bending upwards.

The yellow powerflex were definitely 2 piece bushes.... that's not to say other makers could have used the same colour.
I take it you have already removed the centre crush tube?
As the bush has most likely been in situ for some time it may well be firmly bound.
Are you wanting to keep the bush? If not, cut the lip off with a Stanley knife and push through.

It is one piece and the centre pin is out. It is free in the holder and I can rotate it. Would like to keep the bush but if needs must...

Looks like a Superflex bush. I fitted those to my Aero about 20 years ago, although mine were red. I think they use blue for a softer compound.
It shouldn't be hard to pull it out, just a matter of getting hold of it with the bracket in-situ. Something rigged up with a bit of threaded rod and some washers should get it out easily enough. The lip should pull through with very little force.

Rigged up a cotraption involving threaded rod/sockets/washers and my bench vice and got it out.In the car papers have found the invoice for when it was fitted. It was fitted 2009 and 30k mls ago. It was Powerflex (yellow)
