I just finished replacing all my front suspension 'stuff'. At alignment shop and was asked where I got the outer tie rod ends. The tech showed me where the threaded shaft coming out of the actual end moved in and out of the end piece when the wheel is wiggled by hand. Is that correct? Is...

I am trying to change out the steering knuckle on my 2003 1.8t Passat Wagon. Unfortunately the upper bolt for the tie rods head popped off as I tried to loosen it. What suggestions do you guys have for getting it out? It doesn't appear to have enough room to get a drill in there? The point where...

I am having issues with removing either... I want to replace the inner and outer but they both spin inside the rubber bushings. I can not reach the 1 time clip on the inner (furthest) one close to the motor (dust cover) to expose the large nut on the inner tie rod get a...
I've seen torque specs for the inner tie rod, which I assume are the large (slightly larger than 1 1/5") nut. I can't imagine how it would be possible to gauge the torque on that nut. Do I just tighten it very firmly?
AutoZone sells two versions for the B5 Passat:
Duralast ES4008, about $30
Valuecraft VES4008, about $16
I bought the "better" (more expensive) ones, only to discover that they use only a pinch bolt. Where the top bolt is on my stock units and on the Valuecrafts, the Duralasts have a 7 or 8mm...
So, I just picked my car up from the mechanic for fixing the passenger front inner tie rod. It was a week waiting for the part, and I paid $117 including a 2 wheel alignment which I was actually happy about. I thought I'd be paying out the rear. However, they told me that my drivers side has...

2002, GLX 4 Motion, V6 I replaced the tie rod ends and took the car to Tires Plus for an alignment. The guy who did the alignment said one TRE was set almost perfect he barely needed to adjust it. The other was off quite a bit and he had to adjust it a lot. I was paranoid that I did not...
Needed ASAP .... got a 2014 Passat ... was going to put the kayak on the car for the first time for the weekend .... DOHHHHH .... no where to tie the straps down.

Ordered MOOG tie rods (inner and outer) for my 2000 B5 (V6 ATQ 146K miles). The parts arrived in two separate boxes(!) which should have hipped me to an issue....The parts are clearly not the same.
Here's a picture.

Got a new suspension kit from another member. Had uses one of the inner tie rods on his car. I have one complete assembly and a pair of HD tie rod ends.
Just looking for a new inner Meyle HD tie rod here first.
In a couple of days I will change both Outer Tie Rods in one of my Passat's :wrench:
Is there any DIY here on PassatWorld or any other VAG oriented internet site ?
Anything special to look out for ?
Will I be needing some special tools ?
