    One of the ball joints in the linkage has worn mate. the passenger one always goes first. You can do 2 types of temp repairs. One is a simple cable tie to hold the linkage on, and the other is to make the ball bigger by folding a plastic bag over the ball and pushing the socket over it till it locks. Mine has been running fine with method 2 for the last year. HTH
