You need a special tool that slides over the inner tie rod after removing the outer ones.make sure you count the turns to remove the outer tie rods so the alignment will be close. You will need to have it aligned after the repair.

take it back to the place which did the work and ask them to figure out where they went wrong. if you did the work, take it to a shop and ask them to align it and tell you what else you should have replaced. i assume the struts and strut mounts were already replaced when you did this work?

How do i diagnose which tie rod end I need to replace in a 1989 escort? I have elivated the left front tire and attemt to move it. It moved!! When it moved I noticed the tie rod boot moving as well.


youre on the right track. look directly at where the tie rod attatches to the spindle(by the brake rotor) and when shaken, it should move with the spindle, not a second later. then use very small movements and youll be able to see the actual movement of the worn joint. if it is clicking inside the bellow boot(the black accordion like boot coming off the rack and pinion) you will need to replace the inner one as well which requires a little expertise but can be walked through easily.

Both front wheels have some play in them (about 1/2 inch in both directions - left and right) when the wheel is jacked up off the ground. The steering is not tight. The looseness appears to be in the tie...


no this is not normal and you need to determine if its the inner or outer tie rods. make sure you have no up and down movement though. that is signs of bad bearings. if you need to replace the tie rods, after youre done, make sure to get it aligned.

Any info on tie rods


You have left and right inner tie rods and outer tie rods on your car.
You also have lower ball joints which can wear loose too....not to mention the left and right struts and upper strut bearings.

A cheap (China) tie rod may last only a year.(plastic inner wear points)
A good quality tie rod may last 10.(nylon and/or metal wear points)

Replacing tie rods for a 2000 ford escort ZX2


The tie rod ends are at the inner wheel of your steering rack.

Loosen the road wheel and jack up the car, then put the car on an axle stand.

Now remove the wheel.

There is a locking nut on the steering arm locking the tie rod. Slacken this nut and replace it finger tight.

Undo the nut holding the tie rod to the hub assembly.

Using a ball joint splitting tool, loosen the tie rod ball joint and lift it clear from the hub assembly.

Now unscrew the tie rod and count how many full turns it takes to come of the steering arm.

Refitting is the reverse of the dismantling proceedure. However count the turns as you put on the tie rod, the same way as you did when you took it off.

When all the work is done. You will have to get the tracking checked out by your local tyre centre.

1994 chevy cavalier,inner tie rod end.


Usually they can be replaced with a little effort. You would need to get under the car and pry the broken part off the control arm. The tierod end is threaded onto the shaft. There is a bolt which compresses the tierod end onto the tierod. Loosen the compression bolt and unthread the end from the shaft rod. Counting the number of turns to remove it will be the number of turns to replace it. Mount it and then get a front end alignment which is a good idea before something else breaks.

94 ford escort..help on auto repair


I can walk you through it, be sure it is your outer tie rod that is bad the inner tie rods go bad also. It's actually quite simple to replace. Jack up and secure car with safety stands, remove your tire. Remove cotter pin and the nut holding in onto your steering knuckle, Loosen lock nut on the inner tie rod shaft. Either rent or buy you a tie rod removal tool they are cheap, but autozone and many other stores have a tool loner service that is free. Remove the tie rod from the knuckle and hold inner shaft and rotate the outer rod end till it comes off. When you go back with the new one measure across the front ties on the front and on the rear side about the same place. Screw the new tie rod on till the fron and the back of the tires measure the same distance, that is zero toe. Most fwd cars drive great right there. Be sure you tighten everything properly and reinstall the cotter pin If this helps please vote fixya!
