SOURCE: how to change left front tie rod on nissan quest

Loosen the wheel lugs, jack up the vehile,use jack stands under the frame for safety, remove the tire.Turn the steering wheel hard right.Now I am assuming you want to change the outer tie rod on the steering rod.Or maybe the inner.
Then loosen the nut and bring the nut up to be flush with the tie rod joint.
Now either with a splitting tie rod fork (you can rent one from a local parts store free) hammer it tight between the ball part of the joint and the tie rod, it should pop off from the taper lock.
If not give a few sharp raps with good sized hammer and will break it loose.
You can get a manual from your local library on the vehile to help .

Yes degreaser will not hurt it. The outer tie rod is retained only by one nut that connects it to the inner tie rod.Once you have this loosen just turn the outer tie rod to the left to remove it from the inner tie rod.

SOURCE: 2002 ford escape tie rod squeaks

My outer tie rod did the same thing when just out of warranty. I could tell it was "bad" by putting my hand on the tie rod while someone else turned the steering a little and I could easily feel the vibration.
Check the other side to feel the difference. Tie rods don't cost that much, if you can replace it yourself, and take a chance on foregoing the wheel alignment. Maybe a $150? job at the shop.
In my case, a tie rod was not readily available. I verified that it was a good joint; no shake or rattle. Then I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and put it back together. 70,000 miles later, the new tie rod is still on my shelf waiting for the squeak to return.

On the front end of my 1996 vw jetta 2.0 you can jack up the front end and the front right tire has lot play in it and when driving it pulls to right and left when giving it gas


Does it have play in north/south , or west/east direction? Get the bearings and tie rods checked depending on if play is up/down or right/left .... After fixing, get another alignment done if it is bad or if tie rods are replaced.

Is the tie rod part of the front axle


to answer your question No. some cars u don't have to bother the tie-rod to replace axle but it is very much right there and it is not a part of the axle removal job unless you were charged for a tie-rod and it doesn't sound like u were. it would have been wise to replace it then for maybe a few extra dollars

I have loose tie rod ends on both the right and left side of a ford 1999 expedition. On the passenger side the bottom bolt is missing completely. Do I need to replae both with a whole new assembly?


If the tie rods are just loose,you replace the bolts

Obviously if the end joint or brg is worn & loose you replace
them. (not the entire arm,just the joint)

You can replace the bolt or the tie rods yourself,
then have the front aligned within a few days as the
toe will be off.

I assume your talking outer ties rod ends,
not inner --- inside the steering rack boots!!

The inner joint does require the complete, what
looks like a rod or arm to be replaced

How to replace the tie rod end


Tie rod ends are replaceable, whether the steering system is rack and pinion or parallelogram steering system.
f42-02.gif Parallelogram steering system mounts. Figure A - behind front suspension; and Figure B - ahead of front suspension. f42-04.gif A rack and pinion steering system. Tie rod ends are threaded to provide a means of adjusting toe. When a tie rod is replaced, measure the old tie rod assembly before disassembling it. An approximate toe-in adjustment can be made to the new one prior to installation. When removing the old tie rod end, count the number of turns it takes to remove it. Then, turn the new tie rod end onto its threads the same number of turns.
Some vehicles have tie rods that appear to be the same on both ends. The difference is in the threads. One end has left hand threads and the other has right hand threads. It is possible to install the entire shaft backwards (which will work). Mark the tie rod to identify the inner or ourter end before removing it.
Before tightening tie rod clamps, check to see that they are in good condition and are positioned properly so they can be clamped tightly. Before doing a front end adjustment, spray penetrating oil on the threads of the tie rods. Do this during the steering linkage inspection so the lubricant has time to soak in.

It sounds correct to me I paid $220 for a front end alignment with a new tie rod installed. A window switch alone is near $100 for the part

Any info on tie rods


You have left and right inner tie rods and outer tie rods on your car.
You also have lower ball joints which can wear loose too....not to mention the left and right struts and upper strut bearings.

A cheap (China) tie rod may last only a year.(plastic inner wear points)
A good quality tie rod may last 10.(nylon and/or metal wear points)

Wheel Shaking


Sounds like the tie rod is worn. It is common when a CV shaft goes bad that it wears out the tie rods as well. the tie rods hold the wheel in posiition and that why you get the movement 3cm left to right. The tie rod is on the upper part of the wheel hub and if you grab it where it meets the wheel, give it a good shake. If there is movement replace it.

One wheel wont turn


Turn, I assume you mean turn right and left?

Yes, that arm is likely the tie rod. There is no pin that can be replaced, the unit needs to be replaced.

If it is the outside tie rod end, you have an easy job ahead of you. Cost about $30 or so. You'll need a front end alignment.

If it is an inside rod end, you should replace your rack. Cost around $100. You'll need a front end alignment.

Have fun!

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!
