How does my tie rod bar go back on?

I assume you already took it off? If not, unpin the cotter pin so you can r/r the outer bolt from the steering arm. Remove remove the bolt connecting the steering arm & outer ty rod end. Separate the steering arm & ty W a power hammer splitter ( or some type) loosen inner lock bolt, to keep alignment at same spec, count turns (counterclockwise) the amt of turns to complete the removal.Grease threads of new ty count clockwise turns to the same # removal took & lock the outer bolt to the steering arm and lock inner bolt too.Install a new cotter pin in outer holdown bolt & your set. You may still need an alignment unless you where counting turns already while remonig it. Good Luck Frank M

I also have a 1995 Dodge Intrepid with bad tie rods; I have purchased the parts, but I am having trouble removing the INNER tie rods. There is something preventing me from putting a wrench on the bolt

There is a special tool to remove inner tie rod. You usually can rent this from a Autozone parts store. When you return the tool, they give you back 100% your money as long as you don't damage the tool.
It consists of a long pipe with a open end wrench at the end.

I can't seem to get any of my tools into this small space to loosen the inner tie rod. i have many tools but it seems like i need to take my whole engine and transmission assembly just to get to it. any...

You need an inner tie rod tool. Looks like a pipe with a drive socket on one end, and a reciever on the other. Unbolt the outer tie rod from the knuckle, and loosen the lock nut on the rod

Either use a puller to remove the outer end, or hit the knuckle with a hammer, and remove the outer end from the knuckle. Unscrew the outer from the inner rod (break the lock nut loose before removing the outer from the knuckle, or you will not be able to loosen it)

Remove the bellows from the rack and inner rod.
Use a drift or punch and a hammer to push the lock plate off the inner rod end

Place the correct adapter over the inner rod end, slide the rod inside the tool, and lock the reciever end of the tool on to the adapter. place a ratchet on the drive end of the tool, and remove the rod.

Good luck.

Basic socket, set wrench set,hammer possibly pipe wrench,Torch. Jack and support car with jack stands, remove wheel, with correct wrench first loosen inside nut on tie rod this is the nut that keeps the inner and outer tierod from coming apart also this is how you set toe by loosening this nut then truning inner tierod. after nut is loose remove cotter pin from castle nut on outer tierod.then remove castle nut. hit spindle where tie rod goes into spindle hard tie rod will pop out. then spin outter tie rod off inner tierod.*** note you will need to have car alighned after but to get it close count number of turns when removing then install same number of turns. This area of the car is prone to rust so heat may be needed to loosen tight nuts. Dont forget to grease after install.

Replacing outer tie rod on a 2000 dodge neon

put the tie rod back in and thread the nut on. then you turn the inner tierod with a pipe wrench or a big pair of channel locks. you can spray the threads with pb blaster or wd-40. also if ya have a propane torch this helps loosen the threads. apply heat to the outer tierod do not heat the inner. good luck jimmy
