Question about 1998 Volvo S70

1 Answer

Have a 1998 S70 volvo and it has a broken right outer tie rod...

I had the rack/pinion steering replaced last year (really expensive) and then I had to replace 2 front tires recently. My daughter just went into a body shop to get an allignment, and they told her that the right outer tie rod is broken and they could not do the allignment. Does this make sense? Also, is this something that is common, or should I take it back to the place that did the rack? Help.

if this has a conventional front end(not front wheel drive) then there will be one on each outer tie rod end one on each inner tie rod end, both upper and lower ball joints on each side, idler arm and pitman arm. if its front wheel drive it will have a rack and pinion steering. there for there will be one on each outer tie rod end and one on each lower ball joint, if they have grease fittings. so conventional steering has 10 fittings total and rack and pinion has 4 total.

Suspension and steering bad fast


did you replace all the parts your self or did you rely on the mechanics advice and paid for what he said it needed . Unless you really flogged the car I suspect that there was something going on and many of the parts may have needed replacing. For instance struts have an insert and it is not necessary to replace the whole thing including springs .

Change power steering pump


Play in the steering wheel is likely from worn tie rod ends. Have your inner and outer tie rods checked. The outer tie rods are connected to the rod ends coming out of the rack on each side, and are connected to the wheels. The inner tie rods are not visible-but are on the rods under the protective boots on each end of the rack and pinion assembly.
You may need a new rack assembly, but first check if you just need new tie rods.

The fluid is leaking from the boot at the outer tie rod Passenger side


This is a rack and pinion leak which is for the steering...The only thing you can do is change the complete rack component to stop the leak.If it keeps leaking and you let it get low you can also cause the power steering pump to start leaking...This will cause major steering failure !
Some racks will leak slowly for a long time and may never get bad enough to swap for a new one but it is not worth taking the chance....But if you keep a close eye on it and cant afford to change it you can save the system by keeping fluid in it...It may not leak but maybe a pint every month..It is still the weakest link at the steering system....They are not cheap and neither is the labor......
However ....the new one comes loaded.
I hopethis helps ........................................Metalpoet

Replace rack/pinion


The book calls for about 5 hours labor with a lift, air tools, and experience. It's a tough job. Here are a few tips, Take the lines loose from the rack; not the pump. With the tires off, Remove the nuts from the outer tie rods.Run the nuts back on the tie rods stud and hit the steering knuckle where the tie rod's stud goes through.This will free the stud. Remove the steering shaft from the rack.(take the bolt all the way out.Remove rack mounting bolts. Twist,pull ****,and fight the rack out the side of the car with the most room. The new rack will have inner tie rods already installed. Make sure the new rack is centered.(Turn left then right count the turns then center same # of turns from left to right). Count the threads or measure from the outer tie rod's jam nut to the last thread on the inner tie rod.(you can leave the jam nut in place and take the outer tie rod off and measure from the jam nut to the end of the rod.)Install the outer tie rods. Replace rack in car. hook up steering shaft.Bolt up rack. Hook up lines. Add fluid and work rack back and forth to bleed air. recheck fluid. Have it aligned. (or just take it to a shop.This job is going to be a nightmare!!!)

I need to replace the inner tie rods on my 97' conti......need a diagram of how to and any other info pertinent to the job - Bair


If this is a rack and pinion type steering, in order to remove the inner tie rods you will first have loosen the jam nut at the outer tie rod end,next unbolt the outer tie rod from the steering knuckle, unscrew the outer tie rod end off (be sure to count how many turns to remove), next remove the inner bellows boot (black boot) from the tie rod / rack and pinion, next is to unscrew the inner tie rod from the rack assembly (the do make a tool for this to make it easier) but if you do not have the tool,you can sometimes use a big pair of channel locks or a big enough wrench to fit on the fitting on the inside of the inner tie rod, and just unscrew the inner tie rod (normal left=loosen, right=tighten). Hope this helps. Would also recommend having it aligned after you are finished.
