Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to-video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a sway bar link on this 2001 Volkswagen Beetle. We show you on the passenger's side, but the driver's side is the same procedure. The items you'll need are a 16 and 17mm socket and ratchet, a 10mm Allen wrench, and jack and jack stands.

Your sway bar link is located right here, and up top there is a 16mm nut, and on the other side of it is a 10mm Allen bolt. Using a 10mm Allen wrench, hold the bolt still while you remove the nut with the 16mm socket. Then just hit that out, and remove this 17mm bolt. The sway bar will just pull off. Take your new sway bar link, push it into place and then replace that 17mm bolt and that 16mm nut.
