I to had trouble with the UJ at the dase of my steering column, and found out the hard way that there is no need to disturb the steering column to remove the UJ.
The stainless steel cap at the top of the splined section of the UJ needs to be released, using a screwdriver, and with the pinch bolt removed at the Steering Rack the UJ will slide down and out.
If you are in desparate need I have one in my garage somewhere, just let me know and I will find it.
I'm sure we can come to some arangement over price and delivery, as I no longer have the Espace it fitted.
Hi Ross, I am interested in the spare mUJ, what do you want for it ? cheers, Bill.
