Where are the tie rods on a 1998 Mercury Tracer?
If you turn the steering wheel all the way one direction or the other, the tierod ends will be in front of the driveshaft(cv joint). They are fairly easy to change.

What could the squeaking coming from under the front end of your 95 Eddie baurer be also you had the bushings replaced two years ago?
The squeak possibly could be tierods. My '98 Mercury had a bit of a squeak coming from under the front and I figured it to be just old car sounds coming on. The steering started getting a bit tight and shaky, from there I was told the steering trouble was undiagnosable, but the tirods needed replacement and the squeaking was what alerted them to that. I went to a different mechanic to have that fixed and they told me the steering trouble was definitely related to the tierod. After they replaced that the squeak and steering trouble was gone.

Where are the grease fittings on 1997 Sunfire GT?
Do you ask because you think you need a grease job? I recently had an oil change done on my '96. When I asked the shop guy if the job included a lube, he told me no, that the fittings on those cars are sealed. Probably the same on your car, if indeed, the fittings are sealed. FriPilot In fact there are two that need to be greased. They are on the outter tierods. Lube shops never do their job, i always lube them myself. The best way to know is to remove the tire and have a look, if you see this kind of tierod then it needs grease. Look for the connector ontop of the tierod. Just.
Asked in Cars & Vehicles
Your car feels light on the steering on one side?
What do you mean by light? like lose? start by jacking up the front end and shake both front wheels, one at a time, from side to side, look/feel for any kind of 'play' if there is some kind of 'play' or movement than it can be the 'tierod' or the 'rack and pinion.' Depending on what make/modle the car is. Try that first.
Asked in Ford Escort, Ford Escort GT, Ford Escort LX
How do you change the front bearing on the 95 ford escort LX wagon?
first of all be sure you have a "jaw type puller" a 2 or 3 jaw puller should work and a "torx" bit set usually between T35 to T50. and you will also need a hydraulic shop press, this is the only way to remove the cartridge bearing from the hub and the knuckle. if you dont have access to a shop press find a local automotive machine shop they should be able to press out the old bearing and press in the new bearing they usually charge about 30-45 bucks to do this do NOT attempt to use a hammer to remove the bearing, doing this will only cause the cartrige bearing to "mushroom out" and with every blow it will become increasingly more difficult until it seizes. How to change front wheel bearings on a 95 escort. first jack the car up and place a jackstand underneath the car then remove the wheel, once the wheel is off get a old srewdriver and stick it in the rotor so that it will not rotate. then use a hammer and chissel or stake to raise the flat spot on the big axle nut that prevents it from loosening, you will need a large socket with a "breaker bar" then remove the big nut that is in the center of the hub, these are usually torqued to 170 ft lbs. so it will not come off easy you might have to get a steel pipe to get more leverage on the breaker bar. then you'll need to remove the tie rod nut be sure to pull out the cotter pin first. once the nut is off the tie rod end will most likely be stuck you can use a hammer on the underside of the tierod end body but dont hit the threaded portion unless the nut is threaded on part way to protect the threads. if you still cant remove the tierod get a "pickle fork" from an auto parts store then insert the pickle fork between the tierod and steering knuckle and hammer until it pops off *note if you use the pickle fork method you will need a new tie rod end as the fork will destroy the protective rubber grease seal allowing dirt to wear out the tierod end. and you will have to have the front end alligned by a professional shop. After the tierod is off remove the brake caliper bolts using a "torx" bit with a rachet, you can let the caliper hang on the hose but you should use a piece of wire to hang the caliper out of your way while you work. then slide the rotor off the hub now get your jaw puller and attach it to the hub flange and center of the axle and tighten until the axle is pushed through the splines. now remove the 18mm bolts from the strut where it meets the steering knuckle, then unbolt the balljoint from the lower control arm after you remove the knuckle assemly take it to a maching shop and bring your new bearing so they can press it in. installation is reverse of removal be sure to grease the axle spines before reassembly so its easier to push through the hub. and when tightening the big axle nut torque it to 170 ft lbs if you have a torque wrench if not get it really tight! and be sure to use your chissle to stake in that flat spot so the nut wont come loose
Asked in Buick Century
Where are the grease fittings on a 1999 Buick Century?
on this new a car the balljoints and tierod ends are probebly sealed wich means they dont need you to grease them. if not they are on the upper and lower ball joints wich are behind the tires so you will need to take the tires off for easy access to the grease fittings. there may also be 3 or 4 on the steering linkage located neer the front of the car underneth.

Asked in Mitsubishi Mirage
How do you replace 1999 Mitsubishi mirage tie rod ends?
In order to remove the tie rods from the steering rack you are first going to need to remove the bellows from either side of the rack. Break the lock nut loose from the tie rod end Separate the tie rod end from the spindle Unscrew the tie rod end and the lock nut from the inner tie rod. Remove the two clamps holding the bellows on the steering rack housing and inner tie rod, then slide the bellows off the rack. With the bellow removed, you will see the inner tie rod terminates at a ball joint that goes into a large nut receiver. The large nut is threaded into the steering rack. If you have just the right size adjustable wrench you can often get in there and loosen them (both are normal right hand thread), they are not terribly tight. If you do not have enough room (no suitably sized adjustable wrench) to get in there, you will need to get a tie rod removal tool. These are often available to rent at auto parts stores, or can be purchased for around $60. You would need something similar to this which slides over the inner tie rod to access the nut with a ratchet.

Asked in Ford Windstar, Ford Escort, Toyota Camry
Is it difficult to change the front wheel bearings on a 1988 Toyota Camry?
yes. impossible actually if you dont have access to a press. first remove the wheel, brake caliper, rotor and the large nut on the end of the drive axle. it also requires removing the steering "knuckle" which mounts in 3 places, to the bottom of the strut, to the lower control arm, and the outer tierod. the hub must then be pressed out, then the bearing. replace the hub and bearing again using the press. installation is reverse of removal. You may also change the bearing without removing the "knuckle from the vehicle... if you own a cutting torch and a slide hammer
Inner tierod ends on a 96 ford winstar?
loosen lock nut on tie rod, just connect outer tie rod from spindle remove outer tie rod measure from lock nut to end of inner tie rod so on the new one you could put the lock nut back in the same spot, remove rubber boot over inner tie rod, you now need a special tie rod socket to remove inner tie rod or a crow foot and a long extension turn the steering wheel so the shaft on rack and pinion is sticking out so you could work on it remove inner tie rod installer in opposite order don't forget to put the new lock pin on new inner tie rod and alignment done so the toe setting is right if off you could wear you tires out
Where is the alternator located on a 1989 Mazda 626?
passenger side of engine, low, towards firewall seat. i just removed mine, but can't get it out of the engine cavity. may have to remove the tierod, maybe even axle>? The alternator can be coaxed out from the top by moving a couple of hoses and the wire harness as far towards the driver side as you can. With just the right tilt--it will come out!
