    Default Megane steering

    I have a 2004 Megane Sport on which I have to replace an inner rack ball joint. Does anyone know how to remove worn part from the rack end, also where can I buy an aftermarket part?

    You can probably buy from any of the "usual" suppliers; EAI, Caravelle, French Connection etc.

    There are various inner joint removal tools - most of which will cost more than the part you buy; other people just extend the rack fully at the working end and use large multigrips.

    Expect to renew the rubber boot if it is original.

    thanks for that. I have tried those suppliers, no stock??? might have to go original. Using multigrips on drivers side do you think it is conventional thread or L.H. I am guessing it screws into the rack ie male thread on the joint.

    Most are, I've only unscrewed a nearside joint and it was a RH thread.

    This tool is probably the most "universal" for cars sized like the Mégane: Laser 5122 - There are cheaper versions sold.

    thanks for all the info, I've managed to unscrew joint using large footprints, came off without too much grunt, One wonders if the screw thread became "uncracked" on the road, it could unscrew itself! I guess the toe out would be a warning!!
