anti roll bar link dust covers

Recommended Posts

My Disco2 failed it's NCT (MOT) test. One item was a split dust cover on the anti roll bar link. Can you get these separately or do you need to buy a new link? If so, what's the difference between the ordinary one (RBM100223) and a Delphi Link Assembly Front Antiroll Bar Discovery 2 (RBM100223 G)? How do I know which one I need?

Another Item of failure was a track rod end. Now, it failed on the same thing on the same side 2 years ago. My garage man swore there was nothing wrong with it but we replaced it anyway and it passed. I find it hard to believe a track rod end would wear in 2 years, so perhaps there is some play in the steering linkage but somewhere else? What else is there on one side only that could give rise to play when worn?

I also got a fail advisory on not having any rear seats. It's a 7 seater, but the rears were folded up..... :D

Thanks! but I've put a gauge on and I think I need an 18/32 mm size - the nearest I can find is 18/40 - they all seem to be for track rod ends rather than the cover for an anti roll bar link - anyone know any different?

send them a email with the larger end & smaller end diameters you need, pretty sure they would be able to sort you some

I found similar issues, but picked some up on eBay.

You're best off just replacing the drop links, they're not expensive. Meyle heavy duty ones are very good. Faffing around trying to replace the rubber boots makes no sense.
