I’m going to be changing my inner tie rods and also my rear wishbone bushes on my 9n3 GTI i was just wondering if anyone has bought or knows of the correct tools for doing each, ive seen a few for sale on ebay but sellers can’t confirm if they will work on the 9n3 GTI. Thanks
Hello all. Question is as the subject line: Adjust right-hand (driver's side) track rod only? Why?. That's what Haynes tells me by the way. That's my main question but also got other thoughts. So then if steering spokes are not level - take the steering wheel off to correct the situation. Other related stuff: To get through an mot re-test I've just had driver's side front wishbone/ball-joint and wheel bearing done. Passed MOT re-test but not had chance to take for wheel alignment to be done. Car drives straight but only while steering wheel is off-centre clockwise. The only thing I'm worried about and think that could have altered my tracking is the fitting of the ball-joint to the wishbone end (cos nothing else much could have changed or been touched). The ball-joint has three bolts which attach it to the wishbone and the three holes on the wishbone are elongated a little, so I've read. The position of the bolts (and so ball-joint) is normally set at the factory but with new parts Haynes says just to put the bolts central in the slots as it seems that's the best you can do. I'm hoping that this will not have altered camber in any way because it's not something garages want to admit can be done on this car. I can only hope the garage I took it to marked out the position of the swivel hub to strut bolts before they took the swivel hub off to replace the wheel bearing so camber won't be affected. However I'm thinking those three ball-joint bolts could affect camber also?? Car goes in on Saturday morning to have wheel alignment done. Probably worrying too much as usual. Any thoughts welcome esp. regarding the right-hand track rod only thing?
