Steering tie-rod outer balljoint - renewal
1 If as the result of inspection the tie-rod outer balljoints are found to be worn, remove them as described in Section 20.
2 When the balljoint nuts are unscrewed, it is sometimes found that the balljoint taper pin turns in the eye of the steering arm to prevent the nut from unscrewing. Should this happen, apply pressure to the top of the balljoint using a length of wood as a lever to seat the taper pin while the nut is unscrewed. When this condition is met with, a balljoint extractor is unlikely to be required to free the taper pin from the steering arm.
3 With the tie-rod removed, wire brush the threads of the tie-rod and apply grease to them.
4 Screw on the new balljoint to take up a position similar to the original. Due to manufacturing differences, the fitting of a new component will almost certainly mean that the front wheel alignment will require some adjustment. Check this as described in Section 27.
5 Connect the balljoint to the steering arm, as described in Section 20.
