First- remove the cotter pin if it's not a lock nut..
Second- remove the nut
Third-They make a tool (ball joint fork) to se seperate the joint. once the tie rod end stud has been removed, loosen the locknut on the tie rod and turn the tie rod end out of the adjustment sleeve, while counting the number of turns, when reassembling, install the new tie rods in the sleeve the same number of turns as when removing.....hope this helps you??????????

Need to replace inner tie rod on a 1998 ford ranger two wheel drive , driver side . engine size is 2.5. do i have to take outer tie rod off as well?


webbraymond2, Yes, you have to remove the outer tie to access the inner tie rod. When you do this, count the rotations of the tie rod as this will have to be replaced when the new inner tie rod is installed. Counting the rotations will allow you to put the outer tie rod close to where it was when you started the job. You are changing the toe setting when you have to replace either the inner or outer tie rod. You need to access and remove the jamb nut and boot before you can access the inner tie rod and this is why the outer needs to be removed first. A wheel alignment is advised after you finish the job. Good luck with this.

1 PUT ON YOUR EMERGENCY BREAK, LOOSEN THE WHEEL NUTS ON THE FRONT WHEELS,JACK UP THE CAR AND REMOVE THE FRONT WHEEL. WITH SOME YELLOW PAINT ,MARK THE THREADS WHERE IT SCREWS INTO THE TIE ROD END SO YOU KNOW HOW FAR TO SCREW THE NEW ON ONTO. TAKE OUT THE COTTER PIN AND REMOVE THE CASTLE NUT FROM THE ROD.

ONCE SEPARATED YOU SHOULD BE ABLE UNSCREW THE OLD TIE ROD END OFF THE SHAFT..TAKE THE NEW ONE AND SCREW IT BACK ON ONLY TO THE YELLOW PAINT MARK THAT YOU MADE ON THE ROD EARLIER. THEN JUST REASSEMBLE THE SAME WAY YOU TOOK IT APART. MAKE SURE YOU TORQUE THE NUT TO 50 LBS.AND BE SURE TO USE A NEW COTTER PIN ON THE CASTLE NUT..

Need to replace front outer tie rod end. How do you do this? Is it simple replacement? 1989 Ford Festiva


Locate the tie rod end, and remove the nut that hold it in place.

Using a hammer and prybar, lodge the prybar under the tie rod end, and against something else, and pry up gently from underneath, while striking the area of the knuckle that it connects into with appropriate force. The tie rod end will dislodge. There is also a tool for this, if you'd rather use it. It looks like a tuning fork, and is called a "tie rod remover". Its use is self-explanatory. You can rent a kit to do this from AutoZone or Advance, the rental is about $50, IIRC, and you get your money back when you return the tool.

After having done that, loosen the locknut on the back of the tie rod, and count the number of threads that you have to turn the tie rod end to get it off from wherever it's installed. This is VERY important.

Once the old one is off, thread the new one on EXACTLY the same number of turns. This will ensure that your vehicle's alignment is about as close as you can get it without taking it to an alignment shop. Tighten the lock nut, reinstall the joint end into the hub, and torque the retainer nut. If there was a clevis or pin, reinstall it.

How do you remove the tie rod from a 2000 dodge caravan


Depending on inside or outside tie-rod i'll go over both. Outside tie rod step: 1:Jack vehicle and remove tire
2:Loosen jam nut on tie rod, this is the nut directly behind the tie-rod.
3:remove cotter-pin on castle nut of tie-rod,remove nut.
4:turn the wheel completely to the extended side so that the tie rod is stretching out and you can get at it with a hammer. If doing driver-side turn wheel all the way to right.
5:Hit the nub that the tie rod is bolted to not the tie rod it will take some swinging. but you'll know when you have broken it free it will pop right out.
6:marking a spot on the shaft that the tie rod is on or leaving the existing jam nut as a marker to thread the new tie rod on. this can effect your alignment angle.
7:using a wrench or vise grip thread the tie rod off and the new one on.
8:Put new tie rod on and bolt down.
9:dont forget to install cotter pin good luck.

Changing tie rod at what point and is it fairly straight froward


You would need to get the front end aligned for a good install,but if your going to remove and replace yourself,count how many turns it takes to remove the old one and turn the new one on the same amount.This will get you "close" to factory,but isn't right.After you put on the new tie rod,test drive it.You'll know immediately if your fix did the job or not.If it pulls toward the side you put the tie rod on add another turn "in".If it turns away from the new tie rod then lengthen it by a turn .

It should be aligned professionally for your safety.

How to take the outer tie rod off on a ford expedition


Best bet is to have an alignment shop do it since you will need special tools to seperate the ball joint. They may find the knuckle ball joints need replacement also. Since you will need an alignment anyways its best to have a pro do this. I have a 98 expedition with 100,000 plus miles and both the lower ball joints have been replaced recently.

How do you change outer tierod ends on a 1996 dodge grand caravan


jack vehicle up in front and make sure its secure. remove front wheels. tie rod is bolted thru steering knuckle. remove the cotter pin from tie rod end. remove the nut from tie rod end. use a small ball joint splitter and small sledge to release tie rod end from knuckle. if you dot have splitter a good hard hit with small sledge on steering knuckle where tie rod attaches will usually release it. b careful not to bend backing plate. loosen the lock nut on tie rod and spin old end off. try to install new end as close as possible to same position as old end. you will need a front alignment after replacement.

Tie rod broke and I am trying to remove the old one but can't figure it out. I have removed the nut from the outer tie rod but it still does not come off the tire. The inner tie rod I have no idea how to...


The tie rod close to the tire. Your have to get a pitch fork and a hammer.
If you don't have a pitch fork,
Then hit the spindle to make that outter tie rod end drop down.
make sure the bolt is remove.
Little hammer is not going to work you will need like a 32oz .
Once you have it loosing you will have to go counter-clock wise turn to remove the outer tie rod end from the inner tie rod, Remember count the turn very important to install it back. for you Toe Alignment.


The inner tie rod end will you will need a tool call tie rod end removal & install. It's a long tube with specail clip to removal & install.
Maybe you can rent it. Or buy it habor freight tools or something.

Let me know
