How to replace an inner tie rod end on a 2001 s600 mercedes benz


I will enclose some pictures to also help you, First remove the wheel on the side of the bad inner tierod,make sure a jack stand is used under the frame for safety. With the wheel off you will next loosen the nut at the rear of the outter tie rod, just a few turns is good, theres a nut that holds the outter rod to the spindle you will need to remove the cotter pin first is it has a locking nut then there will be no cotter pin, remove the nut and seperate the tierod from spindle, this is done with a fork or hitting the side of spindle with a hammer, with that off you will untwist the outter rod, count the turn so it will be close until you have an alignment. with end off next remove the nut that you loosened that locked the outter rod. Remove the clip clamp on the boot and also remove the inner clamp and slide boot off, turn wheel so the inner rod on the side you are working on comes out all the way, next is to remove the inner rod by unscrewing it, if you look you will see a washer that bends over the end to lock it, use a chisel or screw driver to bend ends out of the way then use a wrench to remove the inner tie rod, the new one is ready to install, use locktight on the thread off the new inner tie rod to lock it and also bend washer ends back over to also help lock it, then reverse directions to finish the job. then you will need an ailgnment, hope this is helpful.johnjohn2_66.jpgjohnjohn2_67.jpgjohnjohn2_68.jpg

95 ford escort I replaced lower ball joints and tie rod ends now my car is riding rough over the road feels like tire going to fall off. It never did this before until i change the tie rods and ball...


take it back to the place which did the work and ask them to figure out where they went wrong. if you did the work, take it to a shop and ask them to align it and tell you what else you should have replaced. i assume the struts and strut mounts were already replaced when you did this work?

The left side tie rod seems to have slop on the rack & pinion side. Tie rod outter end is good.what is it?


Worn inner tie rod joint,on the steering rack

If you go to an alignment only shop, not some
chain store, with an alignment rack,they will
change it for you, if it can be done

Then you have to set all the front end adjustments

Don't let them pitch you, a complete rack assy
Moog-- makes those inner tie rods, and you put your
good outer joint on it

Clunking noise near power rack when turning wheel back and forth


Inspect inner and Outter tie rod ends. This may be done with the wheels on or off. Have another person **** the sterring wheel L/R while nother person holds on to the rod ends. Feel for excess play or try shaking the steering rod, if its loose replace inner and outter rod ends.

Knock in stering when turning the wheels from side to side


Possible Tie rod ends, inner or outters cause that type of noise, loose steering mount bolts in the undercarge, binding steering shaft and or binding movement of the half shaft .

Ball joints as well can make that noise, need to isolate the problem. Turn the vehicle off with the key in the ON position have someone move the wheel slightly side to side while u have your hand at the outter tie rod ends, then u will want to raise the front end up , and wiggle the wheel side to side to see if the inner tie rod ends have play or making the noise,.

Good Luck

Wheel Shaking


Sounds like the tie rod is worn. It is common when a CV shaft goes bad that it wears out the tie rods as well. the tie rods hold the wheel in posiition and that why you get the movement 3cm left to right. The tie rod is on the upper part of the wheel hub and if you grab it where it meets the wheel, give it a good shake. If there is movement replace it.

How to remove inner tie rods on a 95 Tracer/Escort wagon


You need a special tool that slides over the inner tie rod after removing the outer ones.make sure you count the turns to remove the outer tie rods so the alignment will be close. You will need to have it aligned after the repair.

A noise coming from front end of my saturn is it my tie rods


The noise you hear could be the tie rod ends or several other front end items. Can you jack up the front end? If so then turn the wheels from side to side with your hands griping the wheel at the 9 and 3 oclock positions. if you feel freeplay or looseness you have to reach arround and place your hand on the outter tie rod end and see if the play is there or the inner tie rod end at the rack. I worked for saturn for a few yaears and we had ALOT of front struts that made a clunking sound over bumps. Don't forget the lower ball joints could be bad also. Check these by placing your hand on the bottom of the wheel and pushing and pulling on the wheel with it off the ground while checking the tie rod ends. Good Luck, Scott

Tie rod ends


You're on the right track. It's going to take breaking up the rust and getting a large wrench to get some leverage and twist it off.
