Talking How to: Change Inner tire rod end

I was wondering if anyone could walk me through how to replace a inner tire rod end. Also post a picture of what the part looks like and is called that i need use to replace it.

Any input would be appreciated.

You can search for a YouTube video. I did the same thing last night, because Firestone advised me that I'd need my driver's side tie-rod end replaced in a few months.

That procedure shouldn't be too far off what you have to do. Tie-rods are tie-rods, all over the world, and the cars are structurally not that different. Search YouTube for your own make/model/year and you should find something very easily. The part itself is not that expensive, but you can search on RockAuto.com and Autozone.com. Ebay is a good place to buy parts too. My local Advance Auto Parts quoted me about $30, and showed me the part - it's small and easy to replace, just jack up the car, use jackstands, and don't forget to chock your wheels.

1. Put the entire front in the air
2. Remove wheel
3. Remove tie rod end. (I just cut mind off with a cutting wheel cause they were replaced as well)
4. There is a little house attached to the top of the rubber boot that needs to be released from its hold.
5. Using a long skinny flat head, pry off the metal clamp holding the rubber boot on.
6. Undo the smaller clamp with needle nose pliers.
7. Pull entire boot off the tie rod.
8. Push the white plastic sleeve away from the inner tie rod (remove completely after tie rod is out)
9. Using an inner tie rod tool, unscrew the inner tie rod.
10. Repeat steps backward for installation. And use a long zip tie in place of the rear metal clamp. You will have to break it off during removal.
