Would like to know step by step as to how to replace the tie rod on a 2006 nissan sentra
FOR A "2006 NISSAN SENTRA" & ANY OTHER MODEL THAT HAS A SMOOTH SOCKET HOUSING, WITHOUT A RATCHET END TO USE A CONVENTIONAL INNER TIE ROD REMOVER TUBULAR TOOL... THIS IS THE TOOL YOU HAVE TO USE... I FOUND ONE AT AUTO ZONE AS A LOANER TOOL...

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.
