I am replacing my rack and pinion in 1996 dodge intrepid.do i need to replace my inner tie rod ends as well?


Power Steering Rack -I don't think you need to replace the inner tie rod ends as well unless they have excessive play. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The power steering gear should not be disassembled in an attempt to service or adjust. If a malfunction or oil leak should occur, the complete rack and pinion steering gear assembly should be replaced. Note that Chrysler LH platform vehicles use two different power rack and pinion steering gears; standard and an available electronically controlled, variable-assist speed-proportional power steering rack and pinion assembly. The removal and installation procedures are similar and the following procedures should suffice for both units. And, as with the standard unit, the complete variable-assist rack and pinion assembly should be replaced in event of malfunction, although the solenoid control valve control module and solenoid control valve may be replaced separately. CAUTION
The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before removing the rack and pinion steering gear. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Disarm the air bag system.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the gear shift cable from the shifter lever on the transaxle.
  4. Loosen the bolt at the gear shift cable to transaxle mount. Remove the cable from the transaxle.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. If necessary, disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body and remove throttle cable bracket.
  7. Remove both wiper arm assemblies from the wiper arm pivots. Remove the cowl closure panel and weatherstrip as an assembly from the cowl.
  8. Disconnect the wiper module wiring harness from the vehicle wiring harness. Remove the wiper module assembly from the vehicle cowl panel.
  9. Disconnect the air plenum from the throttle body, PCV make up air tube and the idle air control motor. Remove he plenum from the right side of the vehicle through the wiper module area.
  10. Remove the vacuum connector from the power brake booster at the intake manifold.
  11. Turn the front wheels to the full left position. Then turn the wheels back in the other direction until the roll pin in the lower steering coupler is accessible. Turn the ignition key switch to the LOCK position to keep the steering column from rotating after the coupler is removed from the steering gear. If the steering column shaft rotates beyond the normal number of turns in either direction, the air bag clock spring will be damaged.
  12. Using paint, mark the steering coupling and steering gear shaft for orientation. Using the correct size punch, remove the roll pin from the steering coupling.
  13. If equipped with a brake pedal travel sensor, remove the pedal travel sensor from the brake booster as follows:
    1. Pump the brake pedal approximately 20 times. This will bleed the vacuum stored in the booster.
    2. Remove the wiring harness connector from the sensor.
    3. Using a small flat tipped tool, lift the retainer ring from the notch. Then remove the retaining ring from the grommet.
    4. Remove the pedal travel sensor from the brake booster by carefully pulling it straight out of its mounting grommet. Do not twist the sensor.
  14. Loosen and remove the two nuts attaching the master cylinder to the brake booster. Remove the master cylinder with the brake lines connected, and position aside.
  15. Remove the power steering pressure hose and return hose from the power steering gear.
  16. Bend back the retaining tabs on bolt attaching the tie rods to the steering gear and remove the bolts.
  17. Lay the tie rods, bolts and plate as an assembly on the bellhousing of the transaxle.
  18. If the rack and pinion steering gear unit being removed is a speed proportional steering gear, disconnect the vehicle wiring harness from the solenoid control module.
  19. Remove the four bolts attaching the steering gear assembly to the crossmember. Slide the steering gear forward in the vehicle to disengage steering coupler from the steering gear shaft. After gear is disengaged, do not rotate the steering gear shaft.
  20. Remove the steering gear assembly from the vehicle through the area in the cowl from which the windshield wiper module was previously removed. To install:
  21. If a replacement rack is being installed, grasp the shaft of the steering gear and rotate until steering gear center take off is in a full left turn position. Install the steering gear into the vehicle through the wiper module opening in cowl.
  22. If the original gear is being installed, align the paint mark on the steering coupler with the mark on the steering gear shaft and install the steering gear shaft into the steering gear coupler.
  23. If a replacement rack is being installed, the steering gear shaft and steering coupler must be aligned. Rotate the steering gear shaft back from the full left turn position until the master spline on the steering gear shaft is aligned with the master spline on the steering coupler. At this point, install the steering gear into the coupler.
  24. Align the steering gear with the mounting holes in the crossmember and install bolts. Be sure the brake line routing clip is installed under the left steering gear mounting bracket. Tighten the mounting bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
  25. Install the steering coupler to steering gear shaft retaining roll pin until it is flush with the top edge of the steering coupler.
  26. If equipped with 3.5L engine, correct orientation of the power steering pressure hose at the power steering pump must be maintained. Be sure the power steering hose is installed in orientation clip at the power steering pump prior to tightening tube fitting. Attach the power steering pressure and return lines onto the proper ports of the power steering gear. Tighten both fittings to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
  27. Align the center take off on the steering gear with the tie rod assemblies. Install the tie rod attaching bolts and washers into the steering gear assembly. Be sure the washers are installed between the tie rods and the steering gear. Tighten the tie rod to steering gear attaching bolts to 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm). Bend the retaining tabs against the heads of the bolts.
  28. Install the pedal travel sensor retainer ring on the travel sensor grommet in the vacuum booster. The tab on the retaining ring should be located in top notch of the mounting grommet.
  29. Sparingly lubricate pedal travel sensor O-ring with fresh brake fluid. Install the pedal travel O-ring into the pedal travel sensor mounting grommet. Coat the end of the sensor with fresh brake fluid and install by pushing straight into the mounting grommet on the brake booster until the tab on the sensor is past the retaining ring on grommet.
  30. Install the wire harness connector to the pedal travel sensor.
  31. Install the master cylinder and tighten nuts to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm).
  32. Install the power booster vacuum hose to the intake manifold. Install the windshield wiper module to the cowl panel. Reconnect the electrical harness to the module.
  33. If removed, install the air intake plenum and reconnect to the idle air control motor, PCV make up air tube and throttle body.
  34. Install the windshield wiper module assembly into the vehicle cowl area and reconnect the wiring harness from the wiper module to the vehicle wiring harness.
  35. Install the cowl closure panel and tighten the six mounting screws. Install the weather strip on shock towers.
  36. Install the windshield washer hoses on the wiper arms, then install arms on the windshield wiper pivots.
  37. If removed, install the throttle cable to the bracket and install to the throttle body.
  38. Reconnect the wiring harness from the solenoid control valve onto the solenoid control module. Be sure that the harness connector seal is in good condition before installation.
  39. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  40. Install the gear shift cable onto the shift lever on transaxle. Install gear shift cable on cable mounting bracket of transaxle and securely tighten bolt.
  41. Lower the vehicle. Connect the negative battery cable.
  42. Refill the pump reservoir to the correct lever with Mopar Power Steering Fluid or equivalent. Do not use any type of automatic transmission fluid. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel several times from stop to stop to bleed the air from the fluid in the system. Check and add fluid as required.
  43. Adjust the front suspension toe setting.

How to get the blinker switch assembly out of a 1966 oldsmobile 98?


1966 Olds 98?
It's been a while, so bear with me. The main objective is to remove the steering wheel, to have access to the turn signal switch.

1.Negative battery cable disconnected

2.I believe you twist the horn button in the middle of the steering wheel, and pull up, to remove. The horn button should have a ring of thick rubber on the bottom, which keeps it in the steering wheel. The chrome piece under the horn button may come off with it, or it stays on the steering wheel. This is the part that is fuzzy to remember.

3.Remove the steering wheel nut, and lock washer.

4.If you do not have a steering wheel puller, go to your nearest auto parts store, and see if one is available to rent. The cost of this puller is relatively low, so you may just want to go ahead, and purchase one. While you're there you need to obtain another tool also. Steering Wheel Lock Plate Tool.

5.After the horn button is removed, and the steering wheel nut, you will see a flat metal area of the steering wheel. On each side of the threaded part of the steering column shaft, there are two small threaded holes, in this flat metal area.

The steering wheel puller, is a bar shaped piece of metal, that has a threaded hole in the middle. There is a threaded shaft that goes into this hole. On each end of the metal bar are slots. Threaded bolts go through these slots, and line up with the two threaded holes in the steering wheel. There is a pointed tip, that rotates on the threaded shaft, of the steering wheel puller. This pointed tip goes in the middle of the steering wheel shaft. (The shaft that you removed the nut from)

Find the two correct threaded bolts in the steering wheel puller kit, that matches the threads in the steering wheel holes. They HAVE to be the correct size, AND the correct thread. (Fine thread, or Coarse thread. They will be SAE thread, and not Metric) If the puller does not come with bolts, or the correct bolts, you'll have to purchase them separately.

Place the puller on top of the steering wheel shaft. Run the threaded shaft of the puller down, until at least 3 to 4 threads of the shaft, are showing on the steering wheel side. Now place a threaded bolt in the slot on the outside part of the bar.

Run the bolt down into the steering wheel threaded hole on one side. Make sure it goes in at least 1/2 inch. Do the same with the threaded bolt for the other side.
Adjust the length of the threaded shaft of the puller, so that the two outside bolts will go in as advised. Adjust the threaded shaft out, or in. Be SURE the two threaded bolts, are threaded down into the steering wheel the same depth, and the bolts are the same length!

Now turn the threaded shaft of the steering wheel puller in, with a ratchet and socket, to remove the steering wheel. (Turn the shaft to the Right)

6.Now remove the steering wheel lock ring. The steering wheel lock ring tool is now used.
There is a cylindrical shaped piece that has threads on the inside of it, and has a hole at the top, that a lock pin slides through, for the above tool. This cylindrical shaped piece is threaded down onto the steering wheel shaft.

The tool has a handle shaped like a screwdriver handle, and a shaft attached to the handle. The shaft goes down into the cylindrical shaped piece. Then the lock pin goes through the cylindrical shaped piece, and also a hole in the shaft of the tool. This lock pin locks the cylindrical shaped piece to the shaft of the tool.

BEFORE the cylindrical shaped piece is pinned to the shaft, you slide a U shaped piece up on the shaft. (Thought it would be better to explain it this way)
The opening of the U, goes down towards the steering wheel. It's U shaped to clear the steering wheel shaft.

As you turn the handle of the tool to the right, it pushes the U shaped piece down. The U shaped piece then depresses the steering wheel lock ring down.
(There is a Thick metal spring under the steering wheel lock ring)

You have to take a metal pick, and a small flat tip screwdriver, and remove the round snap ring. May take a little finesse, and a few tries. Use patience. Now back the steering wheel lock ring tool off. (Turn to the Left) The steering wheel lock ring will come up, so that you can take it off. Remove the spring. Remove the plastic horn contact assembly. Now you can see the screws to remove the turn signal switch.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figures 2, 3 and 4
  1. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  2. Disconnect the feed and return hoses from the power steering pump, then drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.

On models equipped with a remote fluid reservoir, disconnect and plug the hose(s) in order to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
  1. Remove the drive belt from the pulley.
  2. Install a puller tool such as J-25034, or equivalent onto the power steering pump pulley. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut counterclockwise in order to press the drive pulley from the pump.

When installing the puller tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.

  1. On most models, it may be necessary to unplug the electrical connection from the A/C compressor, unfasten the compressor mounting bolts and set the compressor to one side without disconnecting the lines.
  2. If equipped, unfasten the power steering filler tube bolt and remove the filler tube.
  3. Remove the rear brace retainers and the brace.
  4. Remove the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts and then remove the pump from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle and secure using the front retaining bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) 2.2L engines. (50 Nm). On 4.3L engines tighten the bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  2. If equipped, install the rear brace and tighten the retainers to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) on 1994-98 2.2L engines. On 1999 2.2L engines, tighten the brace retainers to 37 ft. lbs. On 1994 4.3L models tighten the retainers to 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). On 1995-99 4.3L models, tighten the retainers to 31 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the A/C compressor.
  4. If removed, install the filler tube and its retainer. Tighten the retainer to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  5. Use a pulley installer such as J-25033 or equivalent to press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut clockwise in order to press the drive pulley onto the pump. Check that the pulley is flush within 0.010 in. (0.25mm) of the shaft end.
