It means the ball joint is shot, if it breaks completely, you will loose the steering and possibly the wheel.
If you have the tools and the knowledge to do this yes, if not take it and have it done.
The wheel has to come off
the brake calipar and rotor
the axel has to come out
Depending on if it is one unit, the ball joint needs to be pressed out, and the new one pressed in. You need a press to have that done.

Never saw a baleno, and have no idea what a mot is....but generally a track rod end is a screw in item that is not difficult to replace. One thing to remember though is that it needs to be screwed in the exact number of turns as it took to remove the old one and that the length after install should be exactly the same or it will throw the alignment off.

Steering wandering had ball joints track rod ends done for mot last couple of years tracking been done cars wanders when driving quite scary


There are many reasons for wandering, I should highly recommend you do some serious looking before you drive any trips, or any higher speeds until you have the front end checked by a reputable mechanic (one highly recommended.)
Here are some reasons for wandering.
1) A bad tire (the tire can look fine, but be bad.)
2) A bad "front end alignment".
This is repairable, but good shops will not fix it until and unless the whole "front end of the car" is in good order.
3) A worn component in the "front end".
God bless your efforts.

Hi, I have a 1998 1.3 Suzuki swift that has a violent wobble at the front end. its not tires, balance or bearings as this was all done in its mot last week. cant seem to see any obvious problems with parts...


the mot dont prove anything much>?
you do know that a real shop , not mot goofs.
a real ASE shop would attempt a in car tire balance
and it would either fail, or they would see the obvious , pronto.
for readers, MOT is "SMOG TEST STATION" in English.
Site side, they are NOT technicians At all, they just do their simple tests and give you thumps up or down.

what can it be, (first end this assumptions deal, keep a 100% open mind, only the truth will come out)
1: bad balance or bad shocks, (dampeners)
a tire that is just tiny bet out of balance will be 10x magnefied
with bad shocks, since 1920 to now. no changes....

2: ; bad wheel bearings.
3: bad supspension parts. lose, bent, bushings bad etc.
try a suspension shop, ask for them to check the front end parts.
5: bad drive. CV joints, or axles bent or bad.
again any real ASE shop can find this easy. Not the MOT s

hi.
it could be listed as a tie-rod end, or tie-bar end.
it may also be shown as a stabiliser bar.

you may find you have to buy the complete rod as some of the ends were not removable.
it may be worth asking the mot tester is he knows what they are called

Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help..

You are victim to the old one two. Fix one thing and another comes up. Your power steering pump is definitely bad and needs replacing. If you like I can walk you through it.

As far as not passing emissions, I would need more information as to what area you failed. I generally recommend a complete tune up and if you fairly we have to look at your catalytic converter or a engine ring problem. Give me as much information and I will help you.

You are on the right track. You may have overtightened the tie rods or the sway bar links. Whenever you do this much front-end work, you should always get the front-end re-aligned. The front-end mechanic will probably find and fix this as a normal part of the re-alignment at no extra cost.

How difficult to replace inner tie rod end on 06 silverado 2wd?


Not that hard, just spray the tie rod sleeve with WD40 night before and let it soak in. Remove the collier pin and and nut and hammer the old inner tie rod end out of the Track rod with a 5 pound sledge hammer. Remove the inner tie rod end from the sleeve and don't forget to mark the distance so you can place the new tie rod end at the same length. Reinstall the inner tie rod end to the Track rod and tighten the nut and replace the collier pin with a new one. Grease the fitting and go for a test drive, if the truck does not wonder then your good to go with out a alignment. Good luck and hope this helps, Note, make sure you have to right inner tie rod ends. Each side has different thread rotations.

Tie rod end


if you do it yourself you need couple of tools and most important it grip plyer to hold the inner rod and you need propane touch to hit the outer/inner joint then try to open that way.
