[DML] Re: tie rod end removal

Go back a little, this subject was recently gone over. The tie rod end
is a taper fit into the steering knuckle. Even after removing the nut
it is a very tight fit and needs a lot of "encouragement" to come
apart. You either whack it out or use a tie rod remover (a miniature
press) or a "pickle fork". PB blaster won't help you much here, it is
not rusted together. Don't use a vise grip on it, you will not get it
to turn. The nut should come off fairly easily if you remove the
cotter pin.
