    I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction. I understand that general automotive tensile bolts are 8.8 rated. Are the drop link bolts the same or higher specification such as 10.9

  • I have looked at the removal of the steering rack in the manual and read far too much about this operation. if the rack needed replacing I was booking it in for next spring when I hope to drop the front subframe and refuburbish.
    I was just curious when the advisory comes up as wear but not excessive. Would the track rod ends be the main culprit or wear in the rack and pinion.
    Whilst the milage is 67000 I'm sure normal driving wouldn't put that amount of wear in the components. But of course, I assume most of the wear would be concentrated on a particular spot.

    More from a leaning point of view on my last MOT it said slight wear in the steering rack. I was wondering if this relates to rack & pinion wear of is their joints bearing that could be the main culprit. Is it possible to repair in 'the shed' or is it a specialist job not worth taking on?

  • I also agree Renovo Is a first-class product, but do mask up bodywork with plastic decorators covers and I use cling film on the rear window or have a bucket of water and sponge handy. However careful you try to be specks of the dye seems magnetically attracted to bodywork and screen

    I am not sure how to proceed I am looking to replace the clutch on my 2003 mgtf. It has done 67000 miles and as far as I know, it's still as from new.
    Whilst I have the engine out to fit a replacement gearbox (because of a hole in the bell housing)I thought it might be prudent to replace the clutch at the same time. However, I wonder what the thinking is on Quinton Hazel and Borg & Beck clutches. They both seem to be at a very reasonable price

    Are they still what I remember the band as or have they been swallowed up into the mire of unknown brands now?
    I am working on a budget and was also looking at replacing coolant pipes as well, such as the two heater ones and pipes from the stainless underfloor pipes to the engine.
