Proud w114 owner who needs some advice
I purchased a '76 W114 in October last year and have absolutely loved driving round during the summer here in New Zealand.
I have just taken the car for a Warrant of Fitness (or MOT) and it failed due to ther being play in the left hand outer tierod end and also the left rear wheel bearing.
My mechanical knowledge is limited but I have a Haynes manual for the car.
My question is.. is replacing a rear wheel bearing and a tie rod linkage achievable for someone with only basic mechanical skills?
Also, the car is not stored at home at the moment so its a bit tricky to access it. I need to know if the left hand outer tie rod end has a left hand or right hand thread? If someone could answer this it would be greatly appreciated so i dont have to trek out just to look under the car for 30 seconds!
Thanks a lot
P.S. a few pics of the car attached below
