Changing an inner tie rod without THE tool

Postby 206ccEast » Wed Nov 22, 2017 6:56 pm

Im about to change an inner tie rod, the part that is connected to the car and not the wheel.
I saw a tutorial on it and it said something about a special tool, for getting the tie rod unfastened.
The guy mumbled something about it being possible to do this without the special tool on some cars..

Can it be done without it? Im in a pinch and need to get this car on the road by 8am tomorrow. :hmm:

So have you changed it? There are plenty of youtube videos and websites suggesting how it can be done although the location is going to make it pretty difficult. eg https://www.wikihow.com/Replace-Tie-Rod-Ends

My Haynes manual suggests a special tool but possibly not for the tie-rod but the track-rod end (the ball joint on the end that connects to the steering arm)

The reason I ask is I've seem a lot if parts misnamed .. especially when you look for them on certain "sales" sites ...

Yes, that's the thingy! It was fairly easy to do, but I can see where you could run into problems, depending on how large the tools you are using are. I got it with - again I don't know the right word in english:

There's not alot of space available, but it can be done without specialtools and without destroying everything. :big-grin: The ball-end I got off with a spare bolt and a rubberhammer.. :o I know, not the most beautiful sight, but it worked and the threads didn't take any damage.

I know about the 'wrong name' issue. Every part shop in Denmark label their goods with different names.. Really helpful for amateurs :clap:

Most people seem to call it a wrench, or a pipe wrench.
