1/ Clean and Inspect the exposed section of the steering rack... It should be clean and rust free.
Mine was perfect.
Apply a light coat of high quality hi melting point grease.
2/ Inspect the Tie rod end for damaged threads or split boot.
Mine was good, so I can reuse it.
3/ Wrap the threaded section of the rack arm with tape, to protect the boot when you slide it on.
4/ Apply a little grease to the tapped section and stide the boot on.
5/ Push the boot on untill it reaches the correct place(An indented section on the tie rod)
Using pliers, put on the new outer clamp.
6/ Under the car, slide the inner section of the boot into place...
This was the hardest part, due to lack of space. The exhaust manifold is right in the way..
I found that pushing the boot UP and onto the rack, then holding it there while you grab the lower part with pliers and pull it down and over... took me maybe 5 mins of grunting and juggling to get it on!
7/ Position the boot where it needs to be, and Put the boot clamp on and pull it tight, folding the clamp over and back on itself. take a flat screwdriver or punch and with a hammer, tap the clamp sleeve flat so it grips the band.
8/ Fold the boot flap back over.
9/ Screw the lock nut onto the tie rod, then screw the tie rod end back on the same number of turns again... in my case, it was 11!
10/ Put the end of the tie rod back in the hole, and retighten the 19mm nut.
Put in a new split pin, and fold it over.
11/ Now the end of the tie rod is secure, tighten the lock nut down onto the tie rod end.
12/ Replace the wheel, and do the other side if needed... I suggest you do them both... if one is done, the other is close behind..
13/ Go get the Alignment checked!
