Trouble with EPS on my 2014 wildcat 1000X ?? hit stump at very low speed on right wheel and now all the steering wants to do is turn hard right !!! I need HELP with this please


Dear George,
It really sounds like you have bent some parts underneath the front end of the car, and the car must not be driven until this is repaired.
I suspect the tie rod ends is bent, but it could be worse.
You will need to have it towed by a tow truck to the repair garage, but you can also jack it up high in the air if you wish to see what is bent. God bless your efforts.

HOW TO REPLACE BENT TIE ROD


if its the outer tie rod then you can loosen the lock nut on threaded portion that attaches to the inner tie rod then remove the nut that locks the tie rod to the spindle assembly.you can hit the area were the tie rod stud goes through the hole to loosen it to remove it from the assembly.then count the number of turns to remove it from the inner tie rod end.then install the new one the number of turns you took the old one off and reassemble in reverse order.its a good idea to get the alignment done to make sure the wheels are positioned right and not wear the tires out early.

How to replace outer tie rod


There is a cotter pin that you remove first. Unbolt the tie rod end to where it attaches to the vehicle. You will the need to use a tie rod end separtor to separate it from the knuckle. It is a U kind of tool that you hammer in and it will separate it for you. You will understand what I mean when you see the tool. Next you take two wrenches, one that fits on the flat part of the tie rod end itself ( close to the nut you will see one the treaded bar it is attached to. Take the other wrench and turn the nut on the treaded part of the bar that the tir rod end is attached to. Loosen the bolt, it just needs to be loose so you can turn the tie rod end around. Now that it is loose "unscrew the tie rod end from the treaded bar. Remember to count how many times you turn the tie rod end so you turn it the same amount of turns when you put the new one on. Reassemble in the oposite order remebering to turn that tie rod end the same amount of turns. Make sure that the bolt attached to the treaded bar that the tie rod end screws on is good and tight against the tie rod end so it stays put. I would still think about getting an alighnment and would replace both right and left tie rod ends. I hope this helped and good luck

I hit a hole backing out of a driveway and after i heard a noise in the front end from hitting a hole the front tire started to wobble and pull to the left, something is wrong please tell me what


This could be a few things, first try switching a rear tire to the front and see if that helps, you may have bent the rim but you would need to look at it and see is the rim is bent then look at the tie rod end to see if its bent, you could have bent the strut or lower control arm too. i would take a look at the tie rod end and see if its bent, here the thing, you say it wobbles and pulls, a tie rod end or strut or control arm will make the car pull but not wobble, a wobble would be caused by a bent rim or tire witth a bubble and this can make the car pull, tire putting the spare tire on and see if it still pulls and wobbles, if it doesnt then you know its the rim or tire, hope this helps.

My 66 mustang pops when I turn it right. I think


The first suggestion is to replace the tie rods. In most cases where there is alot of play and a popping sound when the wheel is turned is because the inner parts of the tie rods are worn through and should be replaced as soon as possible. You could lose control easily if the tie rod pops out completely.
There are inner and outer tie rod ends which keep the wheel in a straight line while attached to the axle. Tie rod ends can be found on the inside of the wheel and are attatched to a longer metal bar which allows tight steering by controling the path of the wheels. The tie rod ends themselves look of a ratchet, with the handle end being threaded.

TOP OF RIGHT SIDE FRT. WHEEL ANGLES INWARD AFTER HIT POTHOLE IN ROAD ALSO BENT INNER TIE ROD REPLACE IT DID NOT SEE ANYTHING LOOSE OR BENT


get a front end alignment IMMEDIATELY. Something is not correct and could break off while driving. If a garage replaced the tie rod, make them align it as they should have done.

2000 caravan drivers side rotor wears out told tie-rod true or no


Look behind front wheel for rod that attaches to spindle/knuckle, and moves your wheel back & forth from steering rack. The tie rod (outer) is the piece attached on the end, that is threaded on that rod, and attaches to the spindle/knuckle, behind the wheel. Grab your tire and try to wiggle it hard from side to side. (hands at 3 & 9 o'clock ) Push with one hand while pulling with the other. If there is slop, or play, you have probably got a bad tie rod end, which you can observe it move by looking at where it attaches, while someone else wiggles it. Maybe this picture will help you I.D. it.498e60a.jpg

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.
