You're on the right track. It's going to take breaking up the rust and getting a large wrench to get some leverage and twist it off.

SOURCE: How to remove inner tie rods on a 95 Tracer/Escort wagon

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.

Replace steering rack on 2004 grand prix


Jim, this is not a hard job but you must do it right. I suggest you purchase the Chilton Manual for your car. Before you take it apart mark the location of the outer tie rod ends so you can have the toe-in at least close when you reassemble. You might want to replace the outer tie rod ends at the same time. If i am buying a rebuilt unit i always try to get a "A-1 Cardone complete unit" with the inner tire rod ends already factory installed.

Getting the outer tie rod off of a 2001 Grand Prix


If you are talking about the ball joint on the tie rod then you must use a spreader to seperate the two.
These are sold at your local auto parts store. When unthreading the rods make sure to count the number of turns out and turn the new one back in the same number of turns. Then take the vehicle to be aligned. The money saved doing the job yourself will be wasted on excessive tire wear unless you do.
Also keep in mind one side of the tie rod is left hand thread and the other right hand thread.

Good Luck
