For fluidity of the thread, I ended up putting a screw into the non drive side and tapped out the bushing to the drive side rather easily. To reinstall this bushing, I first pushed in by hand the bushing towards the non drive side and then using the same screw however this time with a washer, I tightened the screw down and this pulled everything tight. I then tightened down the screws of the lower chainstay to lock them in position. No creaks and a successful lower rear swing arm replacement.
naked 3po, the first weight weenie.

I'm in the process of replacing the bearings on my 2009 Spark 10, and I will be really interested in the manual mentioned above by Mickb:

08/03/11 Incidentally, I just found this link to how the Scott dealers would do the bushing service if they use the recommended tool kit from 2007. Pages 12-22 show the whole process. Also, some important info on removing your headset (pages 10-11) ... ice_07.pdf

The link is unfortunately dead. Does anyone have this PDF or has a link where I can download it from?

Thanks a lot!
