    Default Renault 15TS Front Steering Ball Joint

    Hi

    I have a problem.

    I need a new ball joint for my R15TS steering. Its the ball joint on the pressed metal arm that connects between the steering rod that comes through the mudguard and the front wheel hub.

    If any one knows where I can get some please let me know.

    Regards

    Which side do you need? as these are handed. You will find a boss near the ball joint that should face towards the front of the car. The left side may also have a hole in it for identification.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I need both sides as they are both bad.

    I'll copy a picture of the arm from the service manual I have and send it to you so we are both taking about the same part. My description leaves a bit to be desired.

    Regards

    Yeah, the OP asks for a balljoint, but not sure if they know the joints are not replaceable (or not that easily) hence you need to buy the whole tie rod arm. The car will need a wheel alignment after that.

    You can replace these with R20 tierods and rack end ball joints and boots which may be easier to find.

    I have second hand ones here but would like to keep them as spares for my cars.

    The one on French Ebay that Addo found seems reasonably priced, will probably cost the same amount for postage. The same guy is also selling left and right as a pair.

    These are not that hard to get on various european Ebay sites. I know a place in Eastern Europe (Hungary) where you can pick them off the shelf, the trick is to get there (they don't sell on the internet).

    Here's a set:

    Renault 12 15 17 Dacia 1300 1310 Track Control Arm Tie Rod End Rod Assembly New | eBay

    And another:

    And another;

    http://www.ebay.de/itm/MAPCO-QUERLEN...item1e93278668

    And:

    http://www.ebay.de/itm/1x-Querlenker...item20edf92b95

    Another pair:

    http://www.ebay.de/itm/2x-QUERLENKER...item231fb25946

    And many many others.

    Just go on ebay.de and search for Dacia 1300 Querlenker. Most people will post overseas even if they say otherwise in the listing.

    You're brave. My Hungarian wife and rellies regard it firmly as "Central" Europe.

    Anyway, an easy item to purchase and Aussiefrogs' response was great.

    Your wife is hungarian? Son of a diddly!

    It is no doubt Central Europe as far as beautiful women density is concerned, I'll say that.
