Track Rod End (S1)
FITS THE FOLLOWING MODELS:
Suitable for all models 1996 -2000
These items are very prone to wear on an Elise/Exige and are an MOT failure if the rubber dust covers are perished or split.
These EliseParts track rod ends are genuine original equipment and are priced very competitively, we even include the special M10 fine threaded nuts.
To check for wear, lift the front wheels off the ground and get someone to turn the steering a few centimetres from side to side whilst you hold the wheel, there should be almost no movement of the steering wheel without immediate movement of the actual wheel.
There are a few areas that can cause this, they are; Steering rack, Steering column universal joints or Track rod ends.
If you can see good movement of the rack track control arm and hardly any movement of the steering arm/track rod end then these are worn and should be replaced.
To check for UJ wear, turn the steering wheel from side to side and look under the column at the joint where it connects to the rack pinion; all movement should be relayed straight through the UJ to the rack (make sure all bolts are tight and on the rack mount bolts too).
