Want to learn more about Track Rod End replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What do track rod ends or tie rod ends do?

The track rod end is a component of the steering mechanism. It connects the tie rod from the steering rack to the front wheel steering knuckle on each side. It is a flexible ball joint that can be adjusted to alter the cars tracking and align the wheel correctly.

These parts are sometimes referred to as tie rod ends.

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?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a track rod end replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

How do I know if my track rod end needs replacing?

If there is wear in the parts, this can cause

  • Vibration through the steering wheel
  • Knocking over bumps and whilst changing direction
  • Uneven and premature tyre wear
  • Imprecise steering.

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

A track rod end replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

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?

No, it is dangerous to drive with a broken track rod end (or tie rod end) and is not something to put off, it can cause you to lose control over the vehicle. The same goes for if the track rod end has any known issue such as looseness, wear or binding which can ultimately break. It is recommended therefore not to drive the vehicle, and get help from a professional mechanic with immediate effect.

How much does it cost to replace a track rod end?

Prices for a track rod (or tie rod) end replacement range from £50 to £100 with an average cost of £70. Ultimately, the cost depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.
