who has bust a tie rod end ? where did it break? on the tie rod thread, on the smooth part of the rod, the joint or the tapered part and thread?
the reason i ask is the first day my terrano is street legal i took it for a shake down run on a local coast track. all is fine no loose anything just need to trim more metal on the back wheel arch.
second day went back on the same track to go fishing, got 3/4 of the way to the spot i was heading for ,which is a 50min walk over rough ground (*$%£),and was driving on a tiny pebble part of the track at about 25/30km when as i was turning right the truck decided to go left go out had a look and the left outer tie rod end had snapped on the smooth part this meant get a lift off the next truck to pass (5mins) he was good enough to tack me to the end of my road ,about 3.5km from the track, grab the old tie rod ends which should have been in the truck drive back in my other car then with the ends and heavy bits in a bag i walked back the (@£$%*^!) 50mins to the truck fitted the end and when fishing
