    Default Corsa Help

    Out working on the Mrs corsa just now, its a 2006 corsa c sxi. I thought i could feel a bit of play on the nearside wheel, almost like a track rod end, replaced that and it's still there. What it feels like is when i apply pressure at 3 and 9 on the wheel there is a slight dunt/click. Can't really hear it. There is no play at 12 and 6, there is no obvious play in the wishbones. The wheel turns freely with no roughness. The only other thing I do have is a slight squeel when hard lock right and the wheel just beginning to turn. I am getting a clunk from the same side over bumps indicating drop links, could this give the symptoms i've described? Normally quite good at fault finding but this has just confused me a little

    Have you checked the inner track rod play?

    Have someone hold wheel at 3&9 and wiggle whilst you hold the rack gaitor an feel for play.

    Damn, Just been out there, got a helper to shake the wheel and I put my hand on the boot covering the inner rack end and I could feel it clicking away. ******, money we could do without spending

    Ah right, I'll bear it in mind. I take it I'll be looking at an hours labour + tracking for them? Seems a bit tight under there without the proper tools
