“Matthew was very friendly and professional in his work. He gave me advice on a job that my local garage told me needed doing, turns out it didn't, saving me time and money.

The car has been on the road a few days now, having had a new timing belt and water pump, brake pads and discs all round, a new track rod end, and battery.
All works perfectly, and feels more like a new car now.

Well pleased with Matthew's work and the service that click mechanic provide. Will definitely use again when required, Thanks!!!!“

What does a Tie Rod End do?

The tie rod end is an adjustable rod on the end of the steering control arm that joins to the wheel's upright. When the steering wheel is turned the tie rod end essentially transfers the motion from the rack and pinion steering gearset to the upright, making the wheels turn as well. It includes a ball joint that enables the necessary flexible movement between the upright and the control arm for a smooth steering motion under different angles and conditions.

Moreover, the tie rod end allows for the front wheel alignment to be adjusted. A correct wheel alignment is crucial for well-balanced handling and prevents excessive tyre wear.

How do you know there is something wrong with a Tie Rod End?

  • When the car vibrates whilst driving, noticeable through the steering wheel.
  • When the car feels unstable or pulls to one side.
  • When there is a thudding or clunking noise coming from one of the front wheels.
  • When the car's tyres have worn exponentially.
  • When the steering 'sticks' when turning the steering wheel.
  • When there is a squeaking noise when cornering, stopping or going over a bump.

When should you consider a Tie Rod End replacement?

Tie rod ends in itself do not usually wear out, rather the metal might be damaged in the continuous impacts caused by the irregularities in the road surface, like potholes, humps, crests and so on. It can be that, although rare, at some point a tie rod end cracks under this stress.

That said, a tie rod end's ball joint can wear out due to prolonged use. Sometimes the ball joints dry out if they have not been lubricated correctly, which leads to increased friction and, for example, heavier steering. In some cases the steering might even stick. Eventually, due to wear the ball joints can become loose leading to imprecise steering and handling, usually identified by a 'woolly' steering feel.

Problems can also be identified when going over bumps, stopping the car or going around a corner. A thudding or clunking noise coming from the suspension will then point to problem with a ball joint. In turn, this can unbalance the car's wheel alignment, in turn leading to increased tyre wear. In more severe cases the tie rod end's ball joint can fail outright leading to a potentially dangerous situation where you, as a driver, can lose control over the vehicle.

Addressing issues timely and professionally is therefore key to ensure a safe driving experience. Should you experience problems with the steering it is advisable that you have it inspected and, if necessary, have the tie rod end replaced. Always remember to service the tie rod ends as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Tie Rod End replacement?

  • The mechanic will jack the car safely and remove the front wheels.
  • The mechanic will inspect the tie rod ends and its ball joints.
  • If necessary the mechanic will replace the faulty ball joint.
  • The mechanic will advise if other components need to be replaced.
  • The mechanic will realign the wheels.
  • The mechanic will recheck the suspension and test drive the car.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will make adjustments.

How much does a Tie Rod End Replacement cost?

The cost of a tie rod end replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your tie rod end replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
