    Default nearside tie rod question.

    just wondered of anyone has anyone changed their n/s tie rod & is it a pig of a job or not ?. i've done the drivers side which was a little tricky but when you change the n/side apparently you have to hold the rack at the drivers side with a spanner to unscrew the tie rod, as there isnt a flat on the passenger side to hold the rack for some strange reason.

    thanks

    Taky your time and try to get the TRE as close to it's original position. Then take it to get the front tracking sorted
