Track rod end or track rod joint is an important part of the steering gear. This car part is located between two elements – hub lateral pull lever and lateral pull. A few years ago in the device of the hinge mounting slotted nuts were used, but now self-locking nuts are used. Self-lubricating plastic liner, which envelops the steel ball head, protects against dirt and moisture. If in the track rod end there is a broken collar or gap, this part must be immediately replaced.

To check the problem, you need to inspect the track rod end collars whether there are cracks in them. Also it is necessary to check if there is a gap in the joint. To do this, it is better to take the car to a specialized inspection. To determine the problem when driving, you need sharply to turn the steering wheel to the right and to the left and to repeat this manoeuvre for several times. If you feel that inside the track rod end there is air, this indicates a problem. If the problem is with the ends, it is not necessary to replace the whole track rod. It is necessary to put the car on a plain surface, to remove the front wheel and loosen the end nut on the steering knuckle lever. After this it is necessary to press the end from the steering knuckle lever and unscrew the nut. Then, finally, get the necessary detail.

This has to do with other car parts such as throttle sensor, hydraulic filter or ball joint. Our online store guarantees you the best prices on parts for all cars and fast delivery terms.

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.
