Buy or borrow a tie rod end separator (like a smaller version of a ball-buster), loosen the nut, and drive the separator in to pry the shaft out. After you get the tie rod separated, you will have to loosen the retaining bolt on the end of the CV joint. Considering the age of the vehicle, you may want to just replace the tie rod ends. The job is a royal pain in the arse, and I am taking my PT Cruiser into the transmission shop tomorrow to let them do it. They quoted me 2 hours of labor for $150, although a lot of shops charge more than $75 an hour.
