Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
My shop said I need to replace both inner tie rods and bushings, but would require special tools. What special tools are needed, and what steps to take to replace them. My manual only covers the outer tie rods and replacing the whole rack and pinion. Should I just replace the whole rack and pinion with 222,000 miles on it? I would like to do it myself if possible.
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.

Hi, usually steeing wheels don't come loose. The steering colomn is probably just worn out an needs replaced. If it is just loose you need to unhook the battery and pull out the screws on the back of the steering wheel that will let yu remove the airbag and once that is out of the way you can see the nut in the center of the steering wheel and just tighten it back up and put everything back together.
Actually tilt wheels can come loose, do the same as above but instead of tightening the center nut undo it then with a steering wheel puller, take wheel off, take out signal switch, now the tricky part theres 3 torx screws which attach the top half of the column to the tilt knockel. Can only tighten 1 or 2 sometimes but it works.
