S1 Elise – Replacing Track Rod Ends
When giving the Elise it’s first inspection I noticed some play in the steering joints which seemed to be from the track rod ends so I ordered some replacements from Elise Parts.
It’s a nice quick simple job to replace them.
The offending article.
Nut undone but not removed to help locate the joint splitter.
Splitter doing it’s thing.
Quick check of the distance of the joint centre to the end of the thread on the track rod so I can match it with the new one.
Old one off.
New one on, matching the length.
As I got the position of the new joints pretty close to the old ones it shouldn’t have effected the tracking much but I will check it anyway.
Front left ball joint next…..
