Track Rod End Dust cover

Is it possible to get just the dust cover for the track rod end? I split one when I removed the track rod from the steering arm to check the rack.

Fairly sure you could get them from SJS or Chris. Neil at one time

Bern,

I used a universal item from Ebay - size 'medium' IIRC. I bought a few a number of years ago, and (as it happens) I used my last one this week for the VW van.

I must get some more!

SJs will no doubt be able to sell you one, but with their P&P pricing structure, it will be far cheaper to source one elsewhere (unless you are getting other things as well).

The 3 measurements you need to know are the diameter of the small hole, the diameter of the big hole and the height of the rubber..... then find one to match. (There is nowt special about the Lotus ones).
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

Thanks chaps, I had a look on the SJS site, couldn't see any.

I'll take Dave's advice, measure and then order some from eBay.
