I assume you are talking about the outter tie rod.

Jack up and support the car and remove the wheel.
Then you see the tie rod. Their is a lock nut agenst the tie rod. Break this nut loose. It is normally a 17-21mm nut.

Now remove the cotter pin (if applied)and break loose the castle nut.
Now use a ball joint splitter or a tie rod splitter and pop the tie rod out of the knuckle.

DO NOT HIT THE KNUCKLE WITH A HAMMER. If memory serves me this car has a aluminum knuckle and if you can damnage it if you hit it with a hammer.

Now just spin the tie rod off and install the new one.
Take it to your local shop to have the alighnment done.

How do I replace the lower ball joint on a 1997 Nissan Sentra


Loosen lugnuts, pull e-brake, jack up front end and use jackstands to support vehicle, remove wheel, disconnect tie rod, remove caliper and get it up and out of your way with rope or wire (allows for more room cuz its tight in there), loosen nut that holds ball joint on to control arm and this requires a 3 foot prybar to push the ball joint down after you loosen nut as far as you can before you cant loosen anymore cuz it hits bottom of axle bootthen loosen more and use bar to push down, repeat until the nut is off and the balljoint should slide down and out of control arm with a little elbow grease.
Slap the new BJ in and put on nut until tight. reconnect the tie-rod, caliper, tire and head to the other side and replace that BJ too. there is no ryme or reason to do just one side for the $20-30 cost of part and hour of labor at the max per side to not do both sides at once, plus you will have to go get the car aligned as you disconnected the ti-rods and replaced BJ's which throws off alignment. Save your self the hassle and dont pay for an alignment again when the other side gets dangerously worn out which woudnt be too long after the first one becomes a problem.

My daughter has a 2006 nissan sentra about 6 months ago she hit a curb with the front passenger side tire we replaced the tire rim but its making a loud humming noise any advise would be greatly...


That loud humming noise you are hearing is the wheel bearing. After hitting the curb the bearing took a hit and became a little wobbly and over time the grease has seeped out and started causing the humming.So just replace the wheel bearing and anything else that might be loose or damaged like the tie rod and ball joints. if those issues are not corrected it might happen again down the road. good luck and glad to shed some light on your issue

Tie rod replacement cost


Hi Gcg_77,
You will need to contact your local auto parts store to get price for the tie rod ends.My flat rate manual listed them at $65 a piece but this is an old price.
The labor time listed for these are as follows:

1 inner tie rod end is listed at 1.4 hours,if you replace both it is listed at 2.0 hours.
1 outer tie rod end is listed at 1.1 hours,if you replace both it is listed at 1.4 hours.
These times include resetting the toe only. If you want a complete alignment you deduct 0.4 hours labor and charge full alignment price.
Hope this helps. If you need anything else,let me know. Thanks,Chuck

Turn the weels opposite the side you want to do, remove splitpin on tie rod end, loosen locknut half a turn, remove ball joint, remove old rubber and replace with new. Reverse whole process, and you're done. Marco 0736775896
