SOURCE: tie rod end

if you do it yourself you need couple of tools and most important it grip plyer to hold the inner rod and you need propane touch to hit the outer/inner joint then try to open that way.
its easy that way i just replace mine few days ago.

SOURCE: How to replace Inner Tie rod on 1994 Chrysler Town & Country?

222,000 miles? that's a good vechile so far! anyways, do some price checking. new rack and pinions come with the inner tie rods. so if it's like 50 more for the whole assembly, i would but if not, it's up to you. i've changed some rack and pinions on vechiles that were under 150000 due to major leaking. and if you put just new rods in, if it dose start leaking later, you'll get new inner rods again with new system you'll just be paying labor and alingment charges again. so again, my OPINION is if I'm going to keep it for a while and if it's COST effective, just to do the whole unit.

How do I tighten screw on inner tie rod?


The inner tie rod requires a special tool and you have to separate the outer tie rod end off the tie rod. My suggestion is buy a repair manual for your vehicle at the parts store and read this section it is well explained. If there is play on the inner tie rod it needs to be replaced.

Does the rack and pinion need to be removed to replace the inner tie rods on my 2006 Sienna?


No, it will not usually need to be removed. But a special tool is required for removing and replacing the inner tie rods. You can buy this special tool, or have a shop do it.

Steering rod that the tie rod end is threaded onto is bent. Can that rod be replaced by its self?


yes! It is called an inner tie rod end and may require a special tool to install. Alignment is required after parts are replaced. Failing to do aligment may cause tire to be worn exessively

How to change tye-rods on 2000 cirrus


There are two tie rod ends on each side, an inner and an outer. Each one
requires a special tool to remove. When the new parts are installed, the vehicle must be aligned, which again requires special knowledge and tools. Unless you own an alignment rack, a lift, and all the special tools, you are not going to be able to do this yourself.

Impact bent the right front tie rod. how can it be removed for straightening or replacing?


First loosen the jam nut with a 21mm wrench. Then use vise grips or whatever you have to make sure the rod can be turned that goes into the outer tie rod. Then remove the cotter pin and 17mm castle nut. Strike the hub where the tie rod goes through with a hammer repeatedly until the tie rod pops out of the hole.

Then simply unscrew the tie rod end and replace it. If the inner tie rod end is also damaged, or the rod is damaged you will need to replace them as well. Inner tie rods have a special tool to remove them, see your local auto parts store.

Remember, replacing an outer tie rod end changes your cars toe (alignment). You will require an alignment after replacing it, even if you think the car drives straight.

Good luck!

Am changing the inner tie rod on a 2000 cirrus with a 2.5 and cant figure out how to get old one off


to get the inner tie rod out you need an inner tie rod tool, it's a long tube that fits a 1/2 inch drive rachet and there's different size adaptors that go into the end of it to fit over the tie rod, find the right size put into tool, put over tie rod and brake it loose, reverse for installtion.

How do i change inner tie rod , do i need a special tool.


i think steering gear has to be removed to get rubber bellows off to access tie rod.

486d579.gif Section 11-02: Steering System, Power 1997 Continental Workshop Manual
DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY Tie Rod and Bellows SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED Description Tool Number Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B
Disassembly
  1. NOTE: Drill out mounting holes in holding fixture with a 9/16 inch drill to allow the power rack and pinion steering gear assembly mounting bolts to fit.

    Mount power rack and pinion steering gear assembly in Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B.
  1. Remove tie rod ends (3A130).
  1. sve~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Use care not to damage bellows. If bellows are damaged, this will allow contamination into the steering gear and cause leakage.
    Remove four clamps retaining bellows to steering gear housing (3548) and front wheel spindle tie rods (3280). Discard clamps if damaged or excessively corroded.
  1. NOTE: Steering gear does not use rivets or roll pins between the inner front wheel spindle tie rod and rack.

    Remove bellows along with power steering gear rack tube (3K762).
  1. Position power rack and pinion steering gear so that several steering gear teeth are exposed. Hold steering gear sector shaft (3575) with an adjustable wrench on end teeth only while loosening ball joint nuts.
Assembly
  1. Expose several steering gear teeth and hold steering gear with adjustable wrench.
  1. Tighten each front wheel spindle tie rod separately to 90-110 Nm (67-81 lb-ft).
  1. Thoroughly clean steering gear and steering gear housing bore of any foreign material. Any abrasive material is extremely harmful to high-pressure oil seals.
  1. Apply Steering Gear Grease C3AZ-19578-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESW-M1C87-A to groove in front wheel spindle tie rod where tie rod bellows clamp to front wheel spindle tie rod and uniformly to inner diameter of tie rod bellows before installation. This allows for toe-in adjustment without twisting tie rod bellows.
  1. Install tie rod bellows and power steering gear rack tube. Make sure power steering gear rack tube is positioned as shown.
