    I take it you mean tie rod, bolted to steering rack, sounds pricey, they are only about 25 quid genuine and about 20 mins to fit.

    it says 'nearside steering arm has relative movement in its fixings' the guy said the bearing knuckle has too much movement where it goes to the steering rack. said he's doing the tracking too aswell.

    yes i agreed for the garage to do the work
