Abstract

This disclosure relates to a plastic bushing capable of compensating for tolerances in both the axial and the radial directions. The radial compensator means includes arms which are compressed when the bushing is inserted into an aperture. The arms are arranged and dimensioned such that when they are compressed, pairs of arms will support one another, which has a positive effect on the relaxation of the plastic material which occurs when a plastic material is compressed over a long period of time
