[Steering & Suspension] Inner track rod joint replacement, 2006 1.6Hdi
I posted about a month ago that the MOT had thrown up an advisory that the steering rack inner track rod joints were showing signs of wear. I need to get this fixed before I fit new tyres.
The parts seem to be available for under £20 each online (though not genuine Citroen ones), but I've subsequently had a quote from the dealer that replacing them (including parts, VAT, and readjustment of tracking) will deprive me of over 300 beer tokens :o(
Has anyone else had this work done either by a dealer or independent garage please? I'm just wondering how horrendous a job it is - though dodgy back will almost certainly prevent me doing it.
Any clues welcome, thanks.

Stealer prices!
Go to an independent local garage, job isn't hard but you do need a special tool for removing steering arm.
It's an hour job max.

Look on Youtube for video howto, gives some idea of what tool you need and how it goes on.
So where does this bit go then ?

Thanks Roadrally and ffrenchie. I've got two likely local garages so will be getting a price from them in the next week or so.

Out of curiosity let us all know the price for future reference in case we need the same repair, thanks.
We change these all the time, will do them for £60 a side usually .
Finally got the worn track rod inner joint replaced by local garage today. Total cost £103 (£15.95 for the joint, £70 labour, plus £17.19 VAT). Perhaps a bit more than Lighty mentioned, but I don't know what his £60 covered. Steering was re-tracked too, so next stop is some new tyres.
