    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : LS

    Engine : 2.0 DTI

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 150000

    Default Tie Rod Ends

    Can anyone recommend a ball joint separator for the track rod end. Don't fancy bashing the hub or using a fork tool.

    Its for a 2.0 DTI, 53 plate.

    Thanks in advance:

    Merikiito, thanks for your response. But the first link is a SYKES PICKAVANT FACOM BALL JOINT WIPER ARM TOOL 660310 ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DRAPER-EXPERT-...item439a5fcd10 ), is that adequate for the tie rod ends ????

    You won't need one - I bought one from Halfords, which turned out to be too small when I came to do the job, so in the end I used the Edd China method - tap the side of the TRE with a hammer and it breaks the tension.
