it comes away all i one mate then press the old bearing out and the new one in

remove the track rod end from the leg then split the ball joints at the bottom the remove the large nut in the engine bay at the top it should lift straight out then

The problem i have is that the bearing has siezed and has spun in the leg,were the bearing fits in. The new bearings i have are now loose.

Do you have the right bearing as the 4 stud bearings are smaller than 5 stud bearings
As this happened to me when I did mine
