Thought i would do a quick FAQ...

First thing is to slacken the driver’s side wheel nuts before jacking the car and securing on axle stands.

After removing the wheel remove the brake calliper to create a bit more space to work in, and any plastic trim/splash guard that is in the way. Make sure the brake line isn’t stressed by fixing the calliper to the chassis (or wherever) with string.

On your back under the car, remove the bracket that bolts through the bush.

Remove a blade from a small hacksaw and thread it through the bush.

Replace the blade upside down in the saw and begin to cut through the bush outer metal case.

Once you have cut through, lightly tap a suitable screw driver under the metal case and fold the bush in on itself.

Now using a hammer and a socket extension you can knock the bush out.

Fitting the power flex bush is fairly straight forward as it comes in two half’s.

Tap both parts of the bush into the mounting and refit the bush ‘bracket’ by jacking the engine up.

i got it second hand so not much, i think its somewhere around £30 new.

i have fitted a Grp A solid mount to a TU engined 205 using this method and a lump hammer so it might be possible also on the 306 (if you wanted to fit Grp A/N mount instead)

Tried fitting mine the other day, and can't see how the bracket/fork can be removed to change this without taking the driveshaft out of the car. Would be grateful if someone could point out how to do this. I suspect it would work if I loosened the upper engine mount bolt and jacked the engine up, would this give enough clearance to get the bracket/fork thing out?

I dont think you need to remove the bracket to fit the new mount, just knock out the old one in situe.

If you do remove the bracket you will need to remove the driveshaft.

No I mean the black fork part, that's pictured above with the powerflex bush in 2 halves. Not the part that has the driveshaft carrier in it that the bush presses into

prob shouldn't reply on this FAQ but i did find it a bit of a wriggle to get the fork out of the way enough in order to get the bush out. Can be done though
