TIE ROD REPLACEMENT

Post by EDDIE-F »

Hi
I am going to replace the non adjustable tie rod on the near side of my Scirocco GT. With a new one which is now adjustable.
Am I going to be able to do this with just normal spanners etc. OR am i going to need one of these fancy tubular tools to get it on and off?

Nothing special needed, just good normal tools.

You do need a thin spanner to fit the locking nut at the steering rack end of the tie rod, that’s the only extra tool I needed to find.
