check for a lock pin some have them. there is a special tool to remove the inner tie rods and the slots if its the one I am thinking of is what locks them in place so they won`t turn. they are flattened to do this.

Have anyone out there ever change inner tie rods on a1995 honda odyssey?,if so simply explain,THANKS


Procedure on replacing the inner tie rod ends:


1) Raise and safely support the vehicle.

2) Remove the front wheel/tire assembly.

3) Clean the steering rod between the steering boot and outer tie rod end lock nut with a suitable penetrating lubricant and a clean cloth or shop towel.

4) Loosen the outer tie rod end locking nut 1/8 turn.

5) Loosen the steering boot clamp(s), and slide the small clamp off the boot.

6) Carefully loosen the boot and slide outward off the steering rack and onto the shaft to expose the inner steering rod mounting fastener.

7) If necessary, position the inner steering rack shaft in or out to allow for additional access.

8) Relieve the steering rod nut locking tab from the inner steering rack shaft, then loosen the steering rod ball socket nut 1 turn.

9) Matchmark the tie rod end to the threaded shaft.

10) Remove the cotter key and castle nut from the outer tie rod end threaded spindle, and using a tie rod end removal tool, remove the tie rod from the steering knuckle.

11) Hold the tie rod with a wrench, and remove the outer tie rod end from the threaded rod, counting the number of complete turns it takes to remove the tie rod end from the shaft. Write the number of turns on a piece of note paper.

12) Remove the tie rod end lock nut from the threaded steering shaft.

13) Slide the steering rack boot off the shaft.

14) Remove the inner steering rod ball socket nut from the inner steering rack shaft.

To install:

1) Inspect the tie rod end for looseness, and the steering rack boot and tie rod end boot for cracks deterioration or damage and replace as necessary.

2) Clean steering rack shaft and apply a light coating of Genuine Honda Power steering fluid as necessary.

3) Apply a medium strength locking agent to the threads where the inner steering rod ball socket mounts. Use a new locking washer and a new stop washer, and install the inner tie rod onto the steering rack shaft.

4) Tighten the inner tie rod end fastener by 58 ft. lbs. (78 Nm)

5) Peen the lock washer over the nut or onto the flat surface of the steering rack shaft.

6) Apply silicone grease to the outer circumference of the inner tie rod end ball socket, and onto the groove just outside of the socket.

7) Apply silicone grease to the inside of the small end of the steering rack boot, and slide the boot over the steering shaft and onto the rack and install the boot clamps. If the boot has air hose fittings make sure they are installed as removed.

8) Apply a light film of an anti-seize compound onto the threaded tie rod end, and install the tie rod end lock nut.

9) Install the tie rod end onto the tie rod, turning it in exactly the number of turns it took to remove it.

10) Install the tie rod end following the tie rod end installation procedure.

11) The balance of installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

12) Check the front end alignment and adjust as necessary.

How to replace an inner tie rod end on a 2001 s600 mercedes benz


I will enclose some pictures to also help you, First remove the wheel on the side of the bad inner tierod,make sure a jack stand is used under the frame for safety. With the wheel off you will next loosen the nut at the rear of the outter tie rod, just a few turns is good, theres a nut that holds the outter rod to the spindle you will need to remove the cotter pin first is it has a locking nut then there will be no cotter pin, remove the nut and seperate the tierod from spindle, this is done with a fork or hitting the side of spindle with a hammer, with that off you will untwist the outter rod, count the turn so it will be close until you have an alignment. with end off next remove the nut that you loosened that locked the outter rod. Remove the clip clamp on the boot and also remove the inner clamp and slide boot off, turn wheel so the inner rod on the side you are working on comes out all the way, next is to remove the inner rod by unscrewing it, if you look you will see a washer that bends over the end to lock it, use a chisel or screw driver to bend ends out of the way then use a wrench to remove the inner tie rod, the new one is ready to install, use locktight on the thread off the new inner tie rod to lock it and also bend washer ends back over to also help lock it, then reverse directions to finish the job. then you will need an ailgnment, hope this is helpful.johnjohn2_66.jpgjohnjohn2_67.jpgjohnjohn2_68.jpg

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.

How too change inner tierod on 2005 pontiac g6


If you have electric steering(no power steering pump)you have to change the entire steering gear assembly as no part is available.If you have the system with a pump a part is available.In order to change the inner tie rod you would loosen the 21mm lock nut on the tie rod.remove the 18mm nut on the outer tie rod and spin off after removing the outer tie rod from the steering knuckle.Remove the nut and the inner and outer clamps on the tie rod boot.remove the boot.You would then need a special inner tie rod tool to turn the threaded inner rod from the steering gear.

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.

Tie rod problem 98 Dodge


There is a tool that you can use that will make it easier for you. To get to the tie rod end, remove the wheel and take the outer tie rod end loose from the hub. You will have to use a hammer and hit the socket where the end goes into the hub to free it up. Once you have the tie rod loose from the hub, loosen the nut behind the outer tie rod end. Count the revolutions as you unscrew the outer end off and write te number down so you will know how far to put it back on. This will save your alignment. Now, the end that is still there is your inner tie rod end. You will have to undo the bellows boot to get to the nut. The tool will slide over the end and secure onto the nut. Now you just unscrew this and replace with you new inner tie rod end.
Please remember to rate this fix.

I can walk you through it, be sure it is your outer tie rod that is bad the inner tie rods go bad also. It's actually quite simple to replace. Jack up and secure car with safety stands, remove your tire. Remove cotter pin and the nut holding in onto your steering knuckle, Loosen lock nut on the inner tie rod shaft. Either rent or buy you a tie rod removal tool they are cheap, but autozone and many other stores have a tool loner service that is free. Remove the tie rod from the knuckle and hold inner shaft and rotate the outer rod end till it comes off. When you go back with the new one measure across the front ties on the front and on the rear side about the same place. Screw the new tie rod on till the fron and the back of the tires measure the same distance, that is zero toe. Most fwd cars drive great right there. Be sure you tighten everything properly and reinstall the cotter pin If this helps please vote fixya!
