Demi Nguyen: you just used a zip tie for the inner boot clamp?
TheTrusoul88: throw away the loose one and keep the tight one 😃
Davis M.J. Aurini: Thanks man, this doesn't look like it will be too awful.
tangodown86: everyone here is griping about the zip tie. the bellows boot shouldn't be moving around a ton so it's fine. if it really bothers you, use a metal zip tie. $5 a pack at harbor freight, right next to the plastic ones. honestly plastic on plastic is nice in this application bc metal can cut the boot
Dave Snapp: Nice. Did not know about the inner tie rod tool. Thanks for showing how it's done, my pipe wrench is not getting in there because the sway bar is in the way. My other concern was whether the rack had to be held back but apparently it is not needed.
cotaman7: Did Ford put locktite on their inner tie rods. I've been trying like crazy with the tool and it won't budge. I'm afraid I'll break the rack if I exert too much force. Any ideas.
Terrelle Harris: I hate it when a zip tie is used. everything else was awesome except for the zip tie part. that plastic zip tie can't withstand what the metal clamp puts up with.
gary thomas: so put old parts back on ?? ummm ya. it's cheap stuff. replace all inner and outer tie rod ends
kestral super: the 1 i need to replace has no hex on it, its as smooth as an acorn...its on a 2001 ford escort 55 van,- any idea if they are replaceable, or is it my dumb luck that i need to change the whole steering rack??
Giuseppe Agostinelli: i have fluid coming out the end of the bellows when turning the wheel all the way left or right. is there a seal in there that can be replaced? steering feels good. no hard spots or whines, just loses fluid. its an expensive rack so id like to know if it is a replaceable seal. thank you
John Murphy: great video. no bull crap here in this video. just getting er done . fast and we'll explained. Thanks lad. Irish respect
Patricia Posey: My inner clamps are missing on my Bellows Boot, and now I have a power steering leak, can those be replaced?
Len Williams: EXCELLENT VIDEO. THANKS...
Bobby B: the only thing I worry about is damaging the rack and pinion gears while taking off and putting on the new inner tie rod. I the instructions that came with my moog inner tie rod says you are supposed to have a wrench holding these gears while removing or installing the new inner tie rod so not to damage the gears, but I don't know how to do that. if I just put to blue thread loc on and tighten reasonably snug, would that be good enough. I really don't want to mess up the rack and pinion gears or am I just worrying too much...great video
Fred Murray: Good job!!
Branislav Stratrov: my idiot mechanic put oil (not grease) inside the boot. About 3 medium side syringe because i was having noise when turning the wheel. It didnt help, how i have oil inside the boot. If that oil goes into the vent tube it will clog it up and the boot will break from pressure.
jghk xgjvv: cause of this video I got off my ass and changed the outter and inner tie rods and saved about 400 bucks. great video. thank u!!
xx79 stromtrooper: Great video. You explained things short and to the point with clarity.
I will be changing my inner rods in the next few days.
Thanks for the great video! ☺
sndman60: Very good tutorial - straightforward and clear.
