Our expert insights into track rod end replacement in Orpington

Our expert insights into track rod end replacement in Orpington

What does a track rod end do?

A track rod end is a small, flexible ball joint which sits on the end of the tie rods, connecting them to the steering rack and front wheel steering knuckle. Together these components perform an essential role in a car’s steering function.

What are the signs of a bad track rod end?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your track rod end:

  • Vibrations in the steering wheel
  • If your steering is not as precise as usual
  • Knocking when you drive over bumps or when changing direction

What happens during a track rod end replacement?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Safely raise the vehicle and remove the road wheel
  • They will then undo the component from the steering knuckle and tie rod
  • A new track rod end will be fitted
  • The wheel will be put back on and the mechanic will test drive your car to ensure the parts are working and fitted correctly

    Perfect service. I was told about this business by a friend. I was laid up with a bad break & needed an Mot. Super easy to book, kept informed at every stage & car returned early. Super pleased. Will be using next year & will be having a service too. Shame I had already had it done this year. Thank...

    First I was a bit worried to book my MOT online as I never did before, but i must say it was worth giving it a try and Im very happy with the service. It was quick and hassle-free. The guy that came to collect my car was very professional and on time. I highly recommend Fixter!
