Re: Renault Espace - Steering Stiff/No Self-Centering*FIXED*

Just to add a tip. After freeing up with a penetrating oil inject some Molyslip oil around the moving bearings of the UJ...a useful tool is the syringe you get with the printer ink refill kits, or buy a small one from a farmers outlet shop or even try a vets. The molyslip is suspended in the oil (engine oil molyslip additive is ok) and even when the oil has dried up the moly stays put on the metal.
Further tip is to smear the moly onto any oil seals before fitting them...makes them last vastly longer.
Also have used it on the hydraulic break cylinder seals.....cloth whetted with moly.....rub well onto sealing surface for a while and wipe off surplus with clean cloth.....the moly will have stayed is quite a tenuous substance to clean off!
