If you've undone the nut you need a ball joint splitter. Go for the scissor type they cost a bit more but they work better,

How do I change track rod


Hello there.
You should really buy a 'Haynes Manual' if you are doing this kind of work on your car.
The item you are renewing is either a 'Track rod end ' or a 'Tie Rod'..
I presume you are going to change a Track Rod End.

Here we go !

.1) First Jack up the car and support on axle stands properly. You should ALWAYS do this. Jacks CANNOT be trusted EVER.

2) Undo the small nut on the top of the Ball joint. You then need to use a Ball Joint Splitter or a 'homemade metal wedge' and big Hammer, and insert it between the two parts (Track rod end and suspension extension) and separate the two parts. The 'bolt' that the nut was on is a tapered fit so it will be hard to separate the two. .

3) When separated, undo the locknut on the other end of the Track Rod end and 'unscrew' the whole Track rod end from the Tiie Rod..
IMPORTANT Make a note of how many turns it took to 'unscrew' the Track Rod end from the Tie Rod.

4) Screw the new Track Rod end into the Tie Rod as exactly the same number of turns to take out the old one if you can. (DONT forget to put the old locknut on to the new Track Rod End first !!!!)

5) Locate the thread of the new ball joint through the Suspension extension as was initially found and then fully tighten a NEW Nyloc nut on the top of the threaded part. (If you use the old nut and the steering comes apart at 70 MPH don't blame me)

6) Tighten the lock nut on the other end on the Track Rod End.

7) Take to a Tyre shop and have the TRACKING re-aligned. If you dont do this your tyres will only last for two weeks or so. !!!!!!

Good Day. I have changed fuel sender unit for Audi A4 1996 and it seems not to be working as the gauge needle does not move when the sender is inside the tank. The suprising thing is that the needle m


Hope you used factory sender. Aftermarket senders have contact problems. Audi updated their senders to gold contacts to improve performance. Moving it by hand may force good contact as opposed top free floating in tank

My car is Honda Civic 1995 model. When I drive it on an irregular road or even on straight road it's steering moves left and right. It did not have complete grip on the road. It seems like the where ever...


Hi, to me the problem sounds like the track rod ends need replacing these are what connects the steering to the hub now when you turn the wheel the track rod ends push the hubs in the way you want to turn but what happens ball joint on the track rod end get play in it is it allows the wheels to turn slightly on their own left and right now once these have been replaced you will have no problems.
if the ball joints where to break you would lose control of the car as the steering wheel would not turn the wheels as instructed and they would be free to turn any way they liked, this would cause damage to the front wings and the hub costing a fortune to put right, but as it stands the track rod ends cost very little to buy and dont cost much to get replaced.

how ever this isnt the kind of job you can do yourself as you would need to get the tracking set up to ensure the wheels are driving in a strait line as their is adjusters that need to be set up after the track rod ends are fitted.

once you have the track rod ends ( tie rods also known as) fitted you will have no further problems and you will then be in full control of your vehicle it will feel a lot more responsive to your control so this needs doing sooner rather than later.

How to remove the tire rod end on a 1998 a4 audi


Jack up the car and support the car on the frame allowing the suspension to hang free. Locate the inner part of the tie rod and loosen the adjuster lock nut on the rod length part of the tierod (sometimes you must heat it ) proceed to remove the cotter pin on the nut at the outer section of the the tie rod after removing the pin loosen the nut but don't take it off all the way unscrew it about half way then using a ball pean hammer hit the knuckle of the tie rod untill it pops off, if you want you can purchase a pickle fork that will remove it also but it will damage the boot during removal.

My 2000 audi A4 squeaks when i turn to the right


Remove the tie rod end and move the wheel manually. If you still have the squeak, you need the ball joints replaced. If not, it is in your tie rod ends, most likely not the inner as it doesn't rotate with the wheel.

Tie rod ends


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.
