A question for our Mercedes  but relevant to other marques too.

Many cars, as they get older, see under bonnet insulation either peel away, or dry out, flake, and fall on to the engine. Can't be fixed - buy new insulation and fit.

So what adhesive is most appropriate? One suggestion is 3M 5200 which (as far as I can tell) is a marine adhesive.

Any other recommendations?

3M90 or 77 would be my guess, 90s probably overkill.

I was going to suggest SIMSON 7003 or other glazing adhesive, built to take the heat

I use Ados F38 High Temperature contact adhesive because it can withstand 176 degrees C for Z3 leather dash repairs.  How hot will it be under the bonnet?  Look at the your selected glue spec sheet to see its temp rating.

Needing advice!!

Would anyone know the exact bushing for this arm. RH bushing. Needing to replace ASAP as it has worn out, just by physically moving it with my hand shows. The ride of this is not nice atm, rocks when entering reverse etc. What other bushings should I be looking at replacing if the RH bushing needs replacing ?

Easiest just to replace all the complete control arm, if that ones flogged the other will be too.

Control arms themselves or all bushings within the arms?

Control arm comes with bushings and the ball joint on the other end installed.

If you want an upgrade, upgrading them to the M3 part is the way to go.

Not unless you're building a racecar or something as a toy for the weekends.

I’m not looking to spend large amounts on new M3 arms, just decent bushings for a weekend drive.

Hunt down the TRW part numbers for the M3 LCAs and look it up on amazon. They're cheap.
