what do you think?
Just changed spring, drop link, arm and steering ball joint within the last few weeks. suddenly has a noise coming from the same passenger side, got the wheel off and jacked it up this morning. on testing the wheel for bearing play, there was movement!! but the steering ball joint seemed to have play also???? any idea's?
Q. about bearing movement: vert. or horiz. ?
horizonal mate, 3 and 9 oclock
I suppose, that problem exists somewhere in a steering joint or steering rack. Please, check all bolt and nuts, especially big-big nut which is on a external CV-joint.
What is the mileage of a car? Do you know, when was replacement of a hub bearing?
the wagons done 56k on a 03 reg, i will check that the cv nut is super tight tomorrow mate, as for the bearing, it hasnt been changed but hasnt done that much mileage!!! the only other thing is the power steering but i cant see how this would affect it?
When you say steering ball joint are you referring to the track rod end or bottom balljoint on the wishbone?
1.9d Mk2 (M59/BE4/5) with battle scars from a conservatory attack. Previously owned a 1.4i Mk2 Forte.Confusedalut:
