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

1999 ford falcon futura change steering rack boot


To replace the boot first you have to remove the outer tie rod end form the spindle asembly. You will need a pair of wire cutters to grab the cotter pin that holds the nut in place. After the nut is removed whack the spindle where the tie rod goes into it with a ball peen hammer and the tie rod end will pop right out. Do not hit the tie rod end on the threads or you will have to buy a new one. Now you have to seperate the outer and inner tie rod ends. There is a nut holding the two tightly in place and a notch in the inner tie rod end to put a wrench on so the inner will not spin when you spin off the outer tie rod end. Mark the threads before removal so you can put it back where it was adjusted before. Loosen the nut and spin off the tie rod end. Now for the boot. There are two clamps on the boot you need to remove a small clamp and a large clamp. With the wire cutters grab these clamps and wrok them off. The new boot will come with new clamps. Always replace the clamps. Now just slide the boot off. You will need to remove the lock nut to change the boot so make sure you mark the threads on the inside so you do not wipe the mark off when you remove the nut. Now just reverse the process to reassemble. Be sure to put it back where it was adjusted before. Make sure to use a new cotter pin. When you reinstall the nut back on the outer tie rod end it is important to tighten it about one turn past snug and line up the cotter pin hole by tightening the nut do not back off the nut to align the cotter pin or it will come loose and ruin the spindle. Not that was not so hard was it. Thanks for visiting the site.

How to replace rear wheel bearings


If it has drum brakes, you'll need to take off the center dust cap, remove the cotter pin, remove the nut and washer holding the drum on. The outer bearing should fall out, the inner bearing usually stays in the drum, due to the grease seal. With the front bearing and washer off, put the drum back on and install the nut, then pull the drum, allowing to the nut to catch the inner bearing as you pull off the drum, and that should leave the inner bearing and seal on the spindle. Pack the new bearings with grease, install the inner one in the drum and tap in the grease seal in place, but the drum back on and install the outer bearing on the spindle, the wash, nut, cotter pin and dust cover. Tighten the nut snug and turn the drum a few times and snug up the nut. Don't overtighten it.

Removal of rear outter door handle


Ok
Remove plastic plug on the inside of door there is 10 mm hole use a hooked pick set pick put through the hole and pull the plastic cir clip towards the back of the door that will release the smaller part of the outer handle then the handle itself can be taken out.this is so simple but so deceiving the actual cir clip is hard to notice because of all the plastic **** on the inside backing plate the cir clip is just on the inside of hole look hard it is 2mm thick & 20mm high (black plastic) place point of pick in between backing plate & cir clip hook it and pull back the front door is based on the same principle but is a lot easier

Packing front wheel bearings


what I do is put a glob of grease in the palm of my hand and push bearing down in to grease untill you see the grease come out of the bearing or you can go to your local parts store and get a bearing grease packer. also wipe spindal with a genorus glob and put grease in between bearing in rotor. To get to the bearings all you need to do is remove tire, center cap (outter grease seal) the silver cap in the center. the cotter pin, Nut, washer outter bearing then the rotor will slip off inner bearing is in rotor still being held in by inner grease seal take seal off replace with new one pack your bearings and reverse removal procedure when retightening nut do not make tight just snug the go another turn if you go to tight you will burn your bearings real fast.
