Loosen all nuts and use some penetrating oil if tough. Sometimes some heat on the nuts will allow them to budge. If you mean getting the tie rod out of the steering knuckle, then use a good 3 lbs hammer and hit the knuckle where the tie rod is wedged into. dont go crazy, but a good solid even hit until it comes loose. The vibrations from hitting will allow the tie rod to pop out like nothing. may take a few hits depending how hard and how long the part has been in there. Hit the knuckle inline the the main part of knuckle to prevent breaking off the ear. do not hit 90 degrees of how the knuckle sits, the ear may break if you go too hard.

SOURCE: inner tie rod ends on a 2002 toyota celica

First, you do NOT have to remove the rack to replace the inner tie rod ends. Second, If you want a .pdf regarding the procedure, I'll be glad to send it to you. But, the tie rods just screw off. Whatyou WILL need to do is get a good front-end alignement after you replace the inner tie rod. If not, you will destroy your tires. Alignment is critical to minimize tire wear on Celicas.

SOURCE: a noise coming from front end of my saturn is it my tie rods

The noise you hear could be the tie rod ends or several other front end items. Can you jack up the front end? If so then turn the wheels from side to side with your hands griping the wheel at the 9 and 3 oclock positions. if you feel freeplay or looseness you have to reach arround and place your hand on the outter tie rod end and see if the play is there or the inner tie rod end at the rack. I worked for saturn for a few yaears and we had ALOT of front struts that made a clunking sound over bumps. Don't forget the lower ball joints could be bad also. Check these by placing your hand on the bottom of the wheel and pushing and pulling on the wheel with it off the ground while checking the tie rod ends. Good Luck, Scott

I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?


Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.
Cheers.

Remove a stuck tie end tod


The tie rod is a tapered fitted once the castle nut is off a pickle fork is beaten into the space between the rod and steering arm and falls out . no pickle fork then look for the raised portion on the steering arm smack it there 3-5 times hard it should fall out if this does not work suggest a 2 jaw pull and press the stud portion out . good luck.

How to change outer tie rod end


Jack up the front of the vehicle remove the wheel. Put a jack stand or similar under the side of the vehicle , dont just rely on the jack to hold it up. remove the split pin from the nut on the joint. Crack off the locking nut from the tie rod to the end. Dont undo it just back it off less than 1/4 turn. Undo the nut that the split pin came out of. Leave it on a couple of threads. place a rod,bar or lever of some kind to put pressure on the tie rod end away from its position . The end has a tapered fit where you have undone the nut. Hit the side of the steering arm that the rod end goes through with a hammer. You will need to hit it quite hard a few times ,this will jar the tie rod out of the taper. Take the nut right off then unscrew the rod end from the tie rod. Place the new and old tierod end together to make sure they are identicle. screw the new joint onto the tie rod to the same position the old one was. place the tapered end through the steering arm. tighten the nut then fit the new split pin. Tighten the lock nut on the tie rod to the rod end. If it is a greasable joint grease it with a grease gun. You may wish to have a front wheel alignment done. Replace the wheel and let the vehicle down. Happy motoring. If this has been usefull Please Vote Jeff

Steering is loose and makes noise


There are many different parts that can go bad to cause tire wear. I would take the car into a local shop to get the alignment checked. When a mechanic checks the alignment he MUST check for worn or loose parts on the front end. If there are any, he cannot adjust the alignment until they are replaced. Most likely inner or outer tie rod ends have play. Could be struts/sway bar links/ or hub bearings as well.

TYROD


to change a tierod on 2001 malibu, jackup and remove front tire, next locate the nut holding tierod on tire side, remove cotter pin and loosen but do not remove the castle nut from the tie-rod end ball joint stud. then install a small puller and break loose the tie-rod end from the steering knuckle. remove nut and detach tie-rod end. (I forgot to mention before taking tie-rod end off of vehicle,loosen the tie-rod end jam nut and mark the position of the tie-rod end on the threaded portion of the tie-rod. you can also count the number of turns to take off so you can put it back on.) make sure the new tie-rod end is aligned with the mark you made on the threads of the tie-rod. have the alignment checked or adjusted after you have installed tie-rod end. if in doubt you can go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your vehicle, they are based on a complete vehicle teardown. the cost is only about 20.00.
