Q: Inner tie rod with tool cant remove

asked by on March 15, 2017

Inner tie rod end won't come off and why doesn't any manual have the removal of an inner only outer tie rod

My car has an automatic transmission.

In order to remove the inner tie rods you have to use a tool to bend back the lock tabs that hold it locked in place. Once the lock tab is bent back then the remover tool can loosen the tie rod. Install new tie rod and tighten and bend over lock tab to secure it in place.
