How do I replace tie rod on a Dodge Aries?


Answer by  78Camaro (200)

To replace a tie rod you have to remove the connecting bolts from each end. Then you can pop in the new tie rod. It should be rather straight forward.

You need to remove the cotter pin on the tie rod and remove the castle nut. Then use a puller and pop it out and replace it.


Answer by  happytimes63 (865)

The tie rod has castle nuts with kotter pins holding the tie rod in the proper position. You will have to make sure you adjust the tie rod to the proper setting or the vehicle may not work properly. You may also need a special tool to remove the rod which can be rented at the auto parts store.
