Default Anti Roll Bar Clamp Bolts

I'm looking to replace my Anti Roll bar bushes as I'm getting a knocking noise over bumps on the drivers side and I replaced the roll bar drop links last year so I'm guessing the bushes are now knackered

Just wanted to know if the bolt holding the clamp on is a torx bolt and if so does anybody know what size it is

Many thanks

That my friend is a Torx Bolt.
I purchased a Draper set of Torx sockets when I had my 407 for the infamous ball joints on the 407 have these type of bolts securing the ball joint to the hub.
Seemingly another new concept for us DIY mechanics to go out and buy more Tools not sure on size tho it could be any of 3 sizes.
Whereas normal Torx screws are identified via TX sizing e.g TX40 etc etc the sockets have a different prefix code VE.
Looking at the picture its either a VE18 VE20 or VE22 I have a full set of these made by Draper in the Draper Expert Range starting from the smallest VE4 - VE24
Hope this helps

Just an update

Changed my ARB bushes at the weekend. Those Torx bolts are a socket size E16 for anyone looking to do it and was able to do them without removing the ABR struts (replaced them in Aug 2010)

Still getting the clunking though over bumps (but not so bad) so was thinking if the ABR struts need replacing again? Heard reports that they don't last very long (especially as I didn't do the bushes at the same time)

Does anyone else have any idea's whats the next thing to consider replacing/checking to cure the noise e.g Lower arm Balljoint, Strut ?

Worth looking at strut top bearing before venturing into expensive wishbone territory... both of mine have gone in the last year (at around 130k miles)... distinctive clunk going over bumps, cheap part and job to do (my local garage charged me 80 parts and fitting)....

Does this nut on the anti roll bar clamp come all the way off ? because I have been turning it for what seems like an eternity and it wont loosen off fully

They are bolts rather than nuts and yes, they should come right out.

Can anyone recommend what to do in this case please?

I've undid the bolts but can't undo them fully?

Any ideas on how to remove them?

Thanks

I had to angle grind mine off then drop the subframe to get bolts out and put new bolts in. Peugeot must have a tool that fits in behind the sub frame to hold the top of the bolt still while loosening the nut
