    Default Replacing Track Rod Ends...

    Got the day off tomorrow, and the weather looks good (at last!), so I'll be changing the track rod ends. Looks fairly straight forward on Haynes, and I've bought a ball joint seperator from Halfords. Does anyone have any tips from prior experience? Ta.

    I've done mine and they're very straight forward,just remember to count the turns it takes to get the old one off and when fitting the new one put it on the same number of turns,also get the tracking checked,good luck m8.............

    Cheers Mate. What I'm going to do is measure the distance between the centre of the existing ball joint and a fixed point on the track rod, in case the new and old rod ends are slightly different lengths. Then screw on the new one until it's the same distance as I measured the old one to be.

    Theres another way of doing it,wrap some tape around existing TRE and screw the new one up to it,then get the front tracking done ..easy.
