Re: Scenic 2 inner tie rod removal support
The plastic washer usually acts as a bump stop for full lock.
Better fitted than not.
If your tool is a 'made for it type' clamp, they sometimes grip ok even on a round surface.
By rights you should support the rack to stop it twisting but I doubt that many people do.
I've changed a few without problem.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
