Default Inner tie rod

I have a slightly bent inner tie rod on a 2006 kia spectra. I have removed the boot from the steering rack and the inner tie rod is secured by screwing the tie rod into the rack and is retained with a square drive pin through the shaft. What is the proper method to remove the pin and the tie rod? Is it tapered? Can I drive it out? Doe the steering rack need to be supported in some way?

Thanks in advance

The online kia service manual are no help in my quest - they don't even show the inner tie rod in the steering rack. Has Anybody out there replaced an inner tie rod on a '06 Spectra?

Did you infact come up with a part number for the inner tie rod? Before you go down any road, find out if what you think you should be able to do is in fact able to be done with a part buyable. And most times the rack has to come out to do anything like that. As well as the issue of if the inner tie rod got bent in the first place how sure are you the rack is still good. Or again you hope and think it should be. Sometimes wishing it so is not enough.

The rack is good -

The mitchel service manual states that the inner tie rod can be replaced in the car. It would be absurd to pull the rack in order to change a tie rod.The kia service manual doesn't even show the car having an inner tie rod.

I figured out the square hole I am seeing is where the claw nut fits into the end of the rack. I don't know the purpose of the hole in the tie rod.

Ok I will not make the comment that I would have out of respect. So i will just say a few short things. Based on my reply to you from before.

1)Your here asking us. Nothing we can say here will make your knowledge base less since your here asking us about. And knew little you said before. Or you would not be here right?

2)"pulling the rack is absured......." Been there done that sometimes it is not absured and required weather you wish to hear it or not. YOU just do not know that since you reply on Mitchells too much for your info. Thou you do get points form me in this if you were asking about a OUTTER TIE ROD END. Then yes it would very likely be ABSURD. But since you ask for INNER TIE ROD END, something that goes INSIDE the rack it is not absured inn the least.

3)"the kia service manaul doesn't even show the car having an inner tie rod" kinda tells you something do it not. Sorta like somewhat answering my question you still did not yet. "Did you infact find a part number nor the part to replace avalible?". But then Mitchells knows better right and your not able to see the point and difference either.

4)"The Mitchells manual states the tie rod can be replaced in the car". First Mitchell weather you beleive it or not is not a OEM book maker. They do reasearch on vechs in general. And then make books on fixing certain ones as you find. That does not mean they use as you also can see at times even pictures of the vech on the cover inside that book. Many times you will see and they use a disclaimer too to tell you that. That things we tell you may not apply to your vech nor might the pic be of your vech in the book. It is just the procedure most times used on vechs in general to do the work we describe for you. So that tells you if you thought two seconds that maybe they gave you general info and not model/car for sure specific info. They can not or they would have to take each and every model car part and put it back together again to do so.

5)Since you have not been to dealer/parts store yet, as you have not answered that you did in fact go as asked. You nor we will ever know if a part is in fact buyable. That is the key first thing to doing the job. It is of little use asking how to do the job. Unless there is a replacement part number for a job that can be done on your vech. That is how we in the other 49 states does it. Maybe just not in Arkansas.
