Diagnosis of the tie rod end

To determine the state of the tie rod end, you should inspect the part using a flashlight, in particular, the tie rod joint rubber boots for cracks. Also, do not forget to check whether there is a joint gap. To evaluate it, install a car on a service pit. For another method of diagnosis you will need an assistant. The assistant will briefly turn the steering wheel several times to the right/left, and you at this time have to examine the part, identifying whether there is air in the tie rod joint.

Replacement of the tie rod end

Due to the fact that the tie rod ends are attached individually, you do not have to dismantle the entire tie rod to replace them. So, if you have found some defects of the part during the examination, for the replacement you should:

  • lift the vehicle, lock the front and remove the wheel;
  • loosen the locking nut from the tie rod end on the tie rod arm;
  • push the tie rod end using a puller at the bottom of the steering arm and remove the nut;
  • loosen the locknut on the end of the tie rod, holding the tie rod hexagon from the gearbox with a wrench;
  • dismantle the tie rod end (we recommend to remember the exact number of turns in order to facilitate subsequent assembly);
  • install a new part, repeat the procedure in reverse order.
