I have a 2006 Sonata with the V6 and 95,000. Last week the harmonic balancer pulley came apart. This week fixed a bad connection on the cooling fan controller and now I have a a drivers side inner tie rod that has a lot of play and needs to be replaced. Did a search on here and didn't find anything under "Inner Tie Rod","Tie Rod" or even "rod" for that matter.
Anyone have any experience replacing one? Do I need any ridiculously overpriced special tools?
Thanks. This forum has been a lot of help, especially with the harmonic balancer and the fan controller.
Thanks. Yeah I think I can rent the tool at Autozone or Advance Auto Parts. Had to order the inner tie rod, should have it Tuesday.
Do you know if the clamps on the rubber boot can be reused? or do you have to destroy them to get them off?
|Removal tool is a free rental at advance auto parts and the job was pretty easy with a good impact gun and compressor. Went ahead and replaced the outer also. The inner tie rod that failed was very corroded and didn't look like it got greased at the factory. The boot was fine with no damage and the inner ring has to be destroyed to get the boot off. Replaced it with a large zip tie.|
