Stiff Steering Universal Joint Bolt


Recommended Posts

New build (310S). Trying to attach the steering universal joint to the steering rack spigot.  The M8 bolt will not fit through the union - I'm obviously aligned with the recess in the spigot. I've tried my persuader to no avail.
I *could* Dremmel the UJ receiving hole slightly (1-2mm) to enable the bolt to pass. However is this an IVA/ safety risk?

Anyone had similar and got some alternative advice please?

They haven’t sorted that one out yet then?

When I built my car in 2015 the first two joints I was sent were like that. Rather than send another Derek suggested I took a small rat tail and opened up the clamp hole till the bolt fitted, which I did. 

It didn’t need much removing, wasn’t a problem at IVA, because they’d never know, and has been fine. 

They’re all like that, sir!
