    Hi guys,

    My car has developed a click noise on full lock and wobble when breaking sometimes, which is not cool!

    my recent MOT come up with this - Offside Front Outer Track rod end ball joint has slight play (2.1.3 (b) (i))

    what part is that eactly?

    I have had TwoTechs do ball joints before but that made loud scrape on full lock and did not wobble at all when it went at the time.

    just want to make sure?

    Inner track rod ends are Renault only I have not seen aftermarket ones for sale that are correct you have been warned the Genuine ones are made by TRW but TRW don't list one. My advice you will probably be better replacing the lot as you are going to pay for alignment after anyway the inner track rod ends are difficult to get at to put the metal clips on the boots a tool than comes in along the length of the rod would be better and the same for the tool to unscrew the track rod itself.
