Track control arm - removal and refittingSuspension / Track control arm - removal and refitting
1 Raise the front of the car and support it securely.
2 Unless a special tool is available to press the track control arm balljoint from the hub carrier, the driveshaft will have to be disconnected as described in Chapter 7, Section 2, paragraphs 1 to 8 to provide more space to enable the balljoint taper pin to be driven from the hub carrier. This should now be done as described in the preceding Section (photo).
6.2 Separating track control arm balljoint from hub carrier
3 Unbolt the inboard end of the track control arm. This is retained by a pivot bolt and a clamp (photo).
6.3 Track control arm inboard fixing
4 As previously explained, a worn balljoint or flexible pivot bushes will necessitate renewal of the track control arm complete. Note that it may, however, be possible to obtain a replacement balljoint through a motor factor.
5 Refitting is a reversal of removal. Tighten all nuts and bolts to the specified torque. Use a new driveshaft nut and stake it into the driveshaft groove after tightening.
