What does a track rod end replacement involve?

Whilst there are differences in the process between vehicles, there are some basic procedures that a mechanic will carry out

  • The vehicle will be raised and the road wheel removed
  • Mechanic will then undo the component from the steering knuckle and tie rod
  • A new track rod end will be fitted
  • The vehicle will be put back together and lowered back to the ground

Can I do a track rod end replacement myself?

  • Imprecise steering.

How long does it take to change a track rod end?

Is a faulty track rod end an MOT failure?

Yes, a faulty track rod end is an MOT failure, and a common one too.

How often should I replace a track rod end?

As the track rod ends are in constant use as the car is driven and are exposed to damage from road debris, a track rod end replacement is a common repair. The most frequent reason is that the protective boot has split, been cut or simply perished over time and this is an MOT failure.

If you experience any of the symptoms related to the track rod end replacement listed, it is important to have the part inspected and replaced if required as soon as possible.

Can you drive with a broken track rod end?

It is recommended therefore not to drive the vehicle, and get help from a professional mechanic with immediate effect.
