Did this video help you?

legorickdeckard: what happens if you don't do the same amount of revolutions when reinstalling the outer tie rod? would it affect the steering?

Эд Красный: Thanks mister.

Jamie S: That was very helpful. Thank-you! :-)

Gabby Foster: Ive been trying for about 3 weeks now to take my inner tie rod off but it wont budge for NOTHING. Ive put PB Blast on there used a pipe wrench and hammer.. Nothing is seeming to work.. Can anybody give any advice? 

Mario Murillo: How do you know when this needs replacing? I have ML320 and there's like a whinny noise in the morning (or when its cold start) as I turn the steering wheel could it be that it needs power steering or is there a problem with the rack & pinion 

Alan Fletcher: Thanks man that's an easy fix

Chase Brooks: How much would this cost to do my self and how much would a shop charge 

Don Shires: Cool video. Very straight forward and thats good. 

ezrafett: Thank you so much for posting this video. I have a 98 Explorer, and noticed that the inner tie rod on the driver's side was loose months ago when I was changing the ball joint on the passenger side. My friend told me that it was very hard to change the inner tie rod, so I haven't done it yet. After watching your video I am sure I can handle it and save a load of money (vs taking it to a shop). 

Oz TheWizard: I got that same inner tie rod tool at harbor freight for 40 bucks.  Worked great.  The lower ball joint press tool which was twice as much on the other hand, cracked after the first ball joint I pressed in.  Guess I overtightened it.  Either it was cheap metal or I was extra strong today.  

Oz TheWizard: How much torque did you use when tightening the new inner tie rod?  I just did mine today but I couldn't find torque specs for it anywhere so I used 50 ft lbs.  Haven't driven the car yet, still have to swap the UCA, so I can re-torque it if necessary.  Thanks.  

Nathan Jenkins: Great video, very clear and to the point one of the best I've seen !! What video editor do you use out of interest. 

dennis sfsu-isys: Very informative!  Love that Inner Tie Rod removal tool... lol.

Terry Cunnane: Really good video. Thanks

Sean Marquiss: Definitely worth watching.  Been working on cars for over 30 years non-professionally and rely on information like this to improve my craft.  Recently bought a 1994 Mazda 929 for $500 and thanks to the internet and people like Dave here I have been able to bring it back to life.  I have needed to replace the water pump, timing belt, and now, at the insistence of the tech who performed the state inspection on my car, the inner tie-rod end on the passenger side.  I have saved thousands of dollars for myself and those I do the work for by being able to fix such things myself.  Such things are only possible because good people like Dave here are willing to open up and share their wealth of knowledge.  Thank you.  I have done all you have requested by rating, commenting, and subscribing out of respect.

Angel Kelley: One mechanic told me to buy Lucas but it continues licking...

Angel Kelley: how can I fix the Mazda 626 rack, it's licking all the oil????

Dawit Zekarias: Thanks thanks .
