I know lots of folks have claimed the two hammer approach to be a good way to separate... But I figured they make other tools for a reason, right? Maybe that is the far superior approach... but then again the MB FSM showed tools similar to what I used for separation.

My P/S LCA bush was badly crcked/crooked. It was replaced with a new part. Right now the issue is that the alignment is wrong, which I believe pulls the bushings the wrong way. Im going to have the dealer do an alignment and get their take.

The knocking behind the glovebox was very intermittent and was slop in the idler arm assembly. Verified that with the wheels off the ground.
