    Great thread. I'm just sticking this order in... does it all look correct for an R26 refresh?

    I did my inner toe rods and I dropped the whole subframe in the end only took a few hours but with garage labour cost I can almost see it being that high?

    What?

    Takes ten minutes tops a side, that includes a bit of a clean up whilst down there!

    You'll need one of these:

    well its going to cost a little more than £200, took me a long time getting the lower arms out as everything was rock solid, I popped over and had a look and he was having no fun at all. Had to leave the car overnight. He did say the price could go up which I am now guessing will be the case

    Thanks. Done track rod ends, drop links etc. but I've never had to replace an inner tie rod before. Nice and easy with the correct tool.

    hi all. sorry but had a read of this thread and can't seem to see the link on mr auto for the correct INNER tie rod (just track rod ends)?

    Only Renault part mate. Aftermarket parts are short for the sport range

    The renaultpartsdirect one is the right one. Mister autos part has a different number. I am pretty sure that iner tie rods are only renault part.

    Guys, my steering on my R26 is not as sharp as it was.
    What should I be replacing to try to eliminate the slight vagueness, I have now?

    Replaced mine for the expensive TFD one. My car had about 138k on it and the bush was fine and didn't need doing.

    But yes if it's sloppy that will ruin the steering feel.

    Best way is to remove the NS wheel, remove the track rod end from the hub/upright and see if you can move the inner rack joint/rack up and down.
