You make this sound so easy!The guide I wrote up there tells you how to replace the track rod end, to replace the track rod then it's just a case of removing the gaiter and undoing the track rod from the piston.
I need to do exactly what you're trying. I believe before the track rods were available from EB, it was the norm to fit a reconditioned rack, so I'm getting the feeling not many people have done thisYou make this sound so easy!
I have just attempted this today and have got nowhere.
The replacement rod has markings cut into the ball joint for spanners, on the original there is nothing. There is just the ball joint then a metal collar that spins, and behind that a white plastic insert and then the piston.
How do I get the rod off?
Jack up car, remove front wheel on affected side,Has anyone changed one of these? My passenger side one is bent so I ordered another one but can't find any guides for doing it anywhere.
Likely to be hard?
