RE: [DML] ?? Separating Tie rod end from steering knuckle, HOW?


That's an old trick I also used to utilize too but since the DeLorean came
from the factory with Nylock nuts I would substitute a regular 3/8"-24 hex
nut as the "sacrificial lamb". Now I have a T.R. removal tool that protects
the boot while you screw the (adjustable threaded) stud. I'll leave a
picture of that to your imagination :) It's made by "Stahlwille" and the
part number is #12616. I've had the tool at least twenty years so I don't
know if it's still available or the cost but that company's prices are more
comparable to Snap-On than Sears if you know what I mean. Over the years
that little tool has saved hundreds of DeLorean T.R. boots from an early
demise. The most important thing however is to use a NEW Nyloc nut to
re-secure the tie-rod as it's the only thing keeping you from a rather
sudden unintended change of direction!

If it has a castle nut on it, flip the castle nut upside down, screw it back

on just enough so it catches the thread a few turns and bang it with a
