Default 407 track rod ends

Just had my 407 SW m.o.t and service at local dealer he advised me possible need to replace both track rod ends in near future at a cost of 100 per side. Are they easy to do d.i.y is there anything i need to know. If anyone has a step by step guide i will do them myself before the bad weather comes back, thnkyou

are you 100% certain it was the track-rod ends he meant??? never heard of anyone having a problem with these yet but they look straightforward



the more common problem is the bottom ball-joints or "frip" as there known which is also an easy fix.
what are your symptoms ???

When i picked up the car he said there was a little play in the sterring rack ends (as he put it) the service girl said that the arms can be replaced without a full rack replacement at a cost of 100 per side.
Do they just screw in,is that it. I know to count the number of turns etc to try and get the same tracking.

Don't forget, Pug charge 70-80/hr labour, plus their parts are always more than what you can get them yourself for
