I also have a 1995 Dodge Intrepid with bad tie rods; I have purchased the parts, but I am having trouble removing the INNER tie rods. There is something preventing me from putting a wrench on the bolt


There is a special tool to remove inner tie rod. You usually can rent this from a Autozone parts store. When you return the tool, they give you back 100% your money as long as you don't damage the tool.
It consists of a long pipe with a open end wrench at the end.

Tire rod end left sidefrom gearbox is broken how do i dismantel


if its the outer tie rod than loosen the jam nut on the threaded part of the inner tie rod. You will then be able to unthread the outer tie rod from the inner. Count the number of turns and install the new one with the same number of turns.

If its the inner tie rod you will need an inner tie rode remover/installer tool and a torque wrench.

Yes, there is an inner tie rod end wrench, there are a few different types of wrenches available. You should be able to borrow one from one of your local parts stores. (Oreillys, Auto Zone, Napa, etc..)

One of the steering rods that goes from the rack to the right tie rod is bent. Can I replace the rod or must I replace the entire rack?


you can replace just the tie rod yourself although you do need a special tool but you should be able to get it at any parts store just take the outer tie rod loose from the steering knuckle remove the rubber boot from the inner tie rod and get the proper size tool to fit he nut and remove and replace the inner tie rod and install in reverse order make sure to count the amout of turns that removed the outer tie rod and reinstall the same amount of turns then afterward the car needs to be aligned

I need to replace the inner tie rods on my 97' conti......need a diagram of how to and any other info pertinent to the job - Bair


If this is a rack and pinion type steering, in order to remove the inner tie rods you will first have loosen the jam nut at the outer tie rod end,next unbolt the outer tie rod from the steering knuckle, unscrew the outer tie rod end off (be sure to count how many turns to remove), next remove the inner bellows boot (black boot) from the tie rod / rack and pinion, next is to unscrew the inner tie rod from the rack assembly (the do make a tool for this to make it easier) but if you do not have the tool,you can sometimes use a big pair of channel locks or a big enough wrench to fit on the fitting on the inside of the inner tie rod, and just unscrew the inner tie rod (normal left=loosen, right=tighten). Hope this helps. Would also recommend having it aligned after you are finished.

I,ve disconected the tie rod end and slid the inner boot down the tie rod but can't figue out how to get the tie rod out?


If it is the inner tie rod you are working on it need to be threaded out on some you can get with a wrench but most you will need an inner tie rod tool. Look at your replacement tie rod you will see the threads and two flat spots that is where the wrench goes. Please rate.

Basic socket, set wrench set,hammer possibly pipe wrench,Torch. Jack and support car with jack stands, remove wheel, with correct wrench first loosen inside nut on tie rod this is the nut that keeps the inner and outer tierod from coming apart also this is how you set toe by loosening this nut then truning inner tierod. after nut is loose remove cotter pin from castle nut on outer tierod.then remove castle nut. hit spindle where tie rod goes into spindle hard tie rod will pop out. then spin outter tie rod off inner tierod.*** note you will need to have car alighned after but to get it close count number of turns when removing then install same number of turns. This area of the car is prone to rust so heat may be needed to loosen tight nuts. Dont forget to grease after install.
