I have an MOT coming up and some slight play on my track rod inner joint - not the track rod end - It looks like the rod itself unbolts from the centre part (drag link?) so I can just replace it
Perhaps i'm getting the terminology wrong, I'm having trouble finding a track rod via...
I'm so happy you got yours sorted - I'll give that a go - presumably you're talking about the exposed CV links on the propshaft itself?
Thanks @wongl for helping a brother out by reading the thread - fingers crossed

It can be "cured" - e.g no noise at any road speed, for around 3-4 miles by spending over 20 seconds at 50+mph - this...
Thanks bt that link shows the earler propshaft. I have the facelift model with the press-on sealed centre bearing assembly which bolts to the body wit two bolts. It was that which which I changed (for a new one).
When you say play, what do you mean? The mounting holes to the body are...
I have a recordings of the sound now in AMR and WAV format - but the forum attachment dialogue simply says it won't accept the format - I've had a search but it is not clear to me what formats are acceptable - can anyone help?
I'm now getting a fascinating new sound from my W202 - an intermittent whine from somewhere in the transmission that sounds like whale song.
