hi everyone, just failed mot due to play in the 10 mm steel rods which connect the track rod ends to the steering rack. i have never heard of this before. play in the track rod ends themselves i have heard of. where the steel rod enters the steering rack what is the mechanics of the joint? what actually wares? the steering is perfect,no wandering very possitive, the only thing i have noticed is a light knocking noise over the bumps, why if this is the case does the wear matter ? hopefully this is the cause and the anoying bumping will stop. does anyone know what actually wears and are the rods available as a spare part ? the other mot failure was the indicator bulbs fading to white, lost all the orange, again another new one on me. herbiemercman.
