Re: 156 Track Rod
They are simple,
Jack up the car,
Take off the wheel,
Loosen the 17mm nut holding the track rod end,
Mark and measure from the center of theTrack Rod END ball joint casing to a MARKED point on the Track rod,
Loosen the 19mm lock nut on the track rod end,
Unwind the track rod end from the track rod.
Wind the track end back on 0.25mm past the point you marked before,
Lock the lock nut 19mm,
Fit the ball joint back into the hub and tighten the 17mm nut,
Lower car off the jack,
Go and get the tracking checked.
N.B. You may need a 5mm hex to hold the new track rod end whilst you tighten the 17mm nut.
Wind in the track rod
