Question about 2005 Pontiac G6 GT
I just bought a 2005 g6 and I was told the tie rod needed to be changed. I got it changed but I am still having slack in the steering while going around corners. I took my car to another mechanic and he said its my rack and pinion. I am wondering if I can replace this myself and how technical of a job it will be.

To make it easier to remove, Place a jack at the rear of the of the sub frame.Remove the rear bolts which there are usually 2 on each side or more.Next make sure the car is high enough off the ground loosen the front bolts.DO NOT REMOVE!!!!!!!After you have done that slowly let down on the jack.Just enough to pull the rack out..Lowering the jack to far could break some stuff so be careful and go slow..

sounds like your front end is worn out and yes tie rod ends are a common source of this problem along with out of balance tires and seperated tire cords, any tire store will inspect your car for free and give you an estimate to repair.

Testimonial: "i felt it would have some dificulty to it. but if a hyanes manual is truly step by step, thats good somtimes hyanes is based on full disassembly"
The diagnosis of this kind of problem is made reading codes with a Tech 2 GM Diagnostic Scan Tool. If they did code reading the first time, even before doing the job at a generic garage, then you would not have wasted money in wrong part and time.
If they said that EBCM must be replaced, then code returned was U1040, which means: Loss of Communications with EBCM
Before replacing the the electronic brake control module (EBCM), check connector and wiring to module. Ask the dealer if they did code reading, and ask if the EBCM replacement choice was determined by codes.
