Question about 2004 Chrysler Pacifica
Tie rod is broken off of right and left front tire
Posted by Anonymous on
To make it easier, when you stop at autoparts store, ask for a "crowsfoot wrench'" to fit the new inner tie rod. Should be able to get it in 3/8' or 1/2 " drive to fit ratchet. It's basically the end of an open end wrench, with square drive for ratchet to fit into.

I use to work at a chrysler dealership and worked on these cars all the time, it was an ongoing problem because the tie rods were designed like **** (unservicable) they are not hard to change though. you can do it yourself you just need to count or mark the threads when you remove it so that your alignment (steeering adjustment) does not change. Or find a local guy, you might find someone on craigslist, people are hungry for work and will work for their money. also if you get the part aftermarket rather than the from the dealer the part is cheaper. dealers jack up the part price 20% - 60%. try partstrain.com or similar sites.. also search coupon codes on the net when your ready to order, often sides like this offer 10 buck or a percentage off.. itll be worth the time. good luck.

if your garage motor have rolling codes you need to put your car inside garage near the motor leave ignition on go to the motor locate learn button press it then quickly go to the car and press and hold one of the buttons for approximately 30 sec or until it start blinking rapidly, if you have a regular motor take one hand held opener go inside car ignition on same time press open button on handheld remote and on the car button 30 sec and it should be programmed.

yes. If the rack is not held ,when you try to turn the rod you could bend the rack.With the pin out it doesn't take much to hold the rack,loosen the end with the rack "turned " so the rack is retracted into the housing,not sticking way out .
