Hi There, hope someone can help? I've searched the forum and 'think' I got answer but not 100% sure, want some reassurance before I order new parts. Failed MOT a few days ago for "Nearside front Track Rod end ball joint has excessive play". Checked some parts websites and thought you could repair either end of track rod with new threaded ball joint (some sell 4 ball joints as kit?). like other posts, I also couldn't find a good illustration of track rod in Rave CD, only basic on how to change track rod? (May be missing something)
Anyway, on removing track rod, it would seem one end has ball joint 'fixed' with the other end threaded, is this accurate? I've tried heat etc but don't believe it does come out? I had ordered a "NSF track rod ball joint" and supplier sent a threaded balljoint, I get the feeling they have sent OSF which does appear to be threaded and interchangeable.
I'd appreciate anyones help before I re-order part tonight.
Many thanks in advanse.
