Full Version: Play At 9-3 In Front Wheels

I was changing the pads and discs today and had a poke around. Gripping the wheel at the 9-3 position there was a bit of play on both sides, more so on the passenger front.

I'm sure I read there should be no more than a few mm play mines more than this but no more that about 5mm as an estimate.

Is this caused by worn track rod ends ?

Thanks

Track rod ends or bushes.
Give the wheels a good push and pull when jacked up and see if there's any play or clunking.
Visually inspect the bushes and joints for worn or perished rubbers.

I forgot to add, probably due to water on the brain or being assaulted by my daughter with a trainer when I checked the passenger side there was a little clunk, so I reckon something is on the way to car part heaven.

So I will have a check of the ends and is that the arb bush you were talking about or a bush on the control arm ?

Lol probably worth looking at anything that moves and is or has rubber on.

I did try to check at 12-6 and it was fine.

I guess wear and tear approaching 60k
