Steering Arm ball joint boot clip

Recommended Posts

After a lot of swearing I have finally replaced the ball joint on the end of the steering arm but now cannot get the spring clip on the bottom of the rubber boot. The clip is two coils of wire and if I put it onto the boot first the boot will not go over the raised part of the arm and if I put the boot on first I cannot get the wire over the bottom of the boot. Is there a certain way to fit the clip that came with the kit or is there something better to use, would it be acceptable to use a small cable tie ?.

Make a loop with a cable tie then feed it on to the spring clip and work it round, bit easier to use than a screwdriver as you can pull on the cable tie loop and not pinch or trap the rubber sleeve 😉.

Worth a try next time and see what you think?
