Chaps, I am trying to remove my steering rod (I believe that is what it is called). Between the bulkhead and the steering rack. I have prized the bulk head end off but the steering rack end is stuck fast.
Any ideas how I can shift it?
The bolt has been removed (it was'nt there anyway).
Cheers
James

I think i used pb blaster and let it soak for a while-much harder to put it back on again!

I also think i used a chisel and a hammer if i remember right,and didnt have an inch of my arms not cut up when i was done.

jack the car up as high as you can, put some thick cardboard underneath you and get comfortable.

good luck

You are the man
After several weeks of planning and discussion I got under the car and hit it, and guess what 2 minutes later it is in my hand.
Thanks again
James

Not got that far yet, I have a mod to carry out on it before I replace it. Hopefully get it back from the machinist by the end of next week.
Thanks again for the help
