Default Steering Rack Adjuster

Hi, I cant budge the star type adjuster on my WH to take out the clunk when turning. Looks like it's been fiddled with before & is not good, can the steering box be taken out of this model without dismantling half the car, doesn't look an easy job. Have undone the large bolts on it to get at it better but it wont budge. Anybody done it before & any hints would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Do a search on Youtube. I recall seeing a vid on how to remove it.

No, it isn't simple or easy.

Search WK not WH as WK is what they are designated in the USA.

I've hit it with oil & WD40 but I think my problem is the star type nut, it looks damaged, the E20 Torx socket just wont go on properly. Is there stuff called Freeze Spray ?
Thanks

Loctite freeze and release.Think I got it from Repco.I had to grind my socket down a lot to make it fit properly into the recess.
