Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi all, I am trying to identify a part (main part) from the rear suspension. It looks like al of the suspension parts fit to it and is the main arm in the whole suspension set-up. But I can't identify a part number or its name :cry:

I have found a diagram and identified the item number and part in red.

Any help welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

That’s the rear trailing arm. I can find the part numbers when I get home.

Everything will be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not the end...

As above, it's called a trailing arm or sometimes a control arm.

Left P/N: 12781135 (supersedes 12762582)

Right P/N: 12781134 (supersedes 12762583)
