If you don't want to do it now, sorn it, and slowly replace stuff. All of that is easy to replace, Im quite happy to give you a hand if you want. I have all the tools now Smile

Discs and brakes easy.
Flexi, will need new middle section (get one second hand??), you will no doubt need my grinder
all the other stuff, is just spanner monkey things.

The only thing I think will need specialist is the track rod ends, we can put them on, but I think you need to have it tracked afterwards.

Gives us a shout if you need help.

The inner rack joints are different from the track rod ends, if they screw in they may be available separately otherwise it's a new rack (TF racks are only £50 or do on eBay though).

Thanks chaps

The only bit that is going to be a pain is the flexi replacement, I may wait though to see if I lose me license next friday before I do anything.

Is that related to the sleep thing, or have you be ragging it around town on Friday and Saturday night??

Would be a disaster if you could no longer drive Sad

Really!? Tried another factor like GSF or Central Car Parts? Unipart may also be worth a call.

Have you tried ringing Euros? Quite a lot of their stuff is not on their website.

They only put the most common stuff on the website, high turnover items, you need to ring or pop in to get the the less common stuff.
