Re: Renault Laguna 2 - Ball Joint Replacement

A good trick to free off the nut that locks up against the track rod end is to use the 2 hammer method.....with a hammer in each hand hit the nut from both sides at the same time....give it a few good blows, now the nut should undo easily.

I've used this method quite a few times and it has always worked.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
