  • Looking for steering rack gaitor

    Left side steering rack/tie rod end gaitor is torn on my 98 Caterham (non-wide track). The duct tape has to go but Caterham UK is out of stock (according to their website at least). I figure this is probably an off the shelf Ford item. Probably an Escort or some such. Anybody have any info on this?

    Try Redline. Also, legend has it one side is larger than the other, so be sure to specify - though you may want to do both sides at once anyway, because if one has gone, odds are the other is probably not far behind...

      Sean, I have a box full of generic gaitors and will check the size and can send you a couple for free!. Steve

        That's very generous, Steve, except Sean doesn't need them, I do! Let me know if you find something that works and we'll figure something out.

        And thanks for the Redline tip, Sean.

          So I'm not the sharpest tool in the drawer, I'll look when I get to the shop today.

            Nigel,
            Try your local Motorcycle sales shop (dirt bikes) as they have a number of replacement gaiters with different size ends that are designed to be trimmed.
            I have a set on my steering rack that are for a Quad and they were about half the price of the ones from the Local parts company and they have been on the car for eight years and work very well.
            Hope this helps.

              Thanks,Martin. I'll give that a shot if Steve doesn't find anything suitable.
