What steps are involved in changing an outer tie rod end on a Volvo 850?

It's a 96 automatic non-turbo sedan. I know I will need an alignment (most likely the toe), but I was wondering if it was a job that can be done at home, or should I leave it to the pros on Monday? I already have the part, and nothing to do tomorrow!

You will need to take off the tire. Once you take off the tire you will need to get under the car to loosen a 21mm (as far as i remember) nut which keeps the outer tie rod attached to the inner tie rod.

Once you do that you will need to use a 13mm (as far as i remember) wrench and make sure the outer tie rod end is not seized/rusted to the inner tie rod. You will move the inner tie rod around to see if both are moving freely.

If both are moving freely you can now use a 18mm (wrench/impact or whatever you have available) to loosen the tie rod end form your steering knuckle.

Once out have done all of these you can spin the tie rod end off while you count how many turns it took to get it off. To put the new one on as close as possible you spin it back on as many turns as it took to take the old one off.

It will get you close to where the old one was originally. You will still need to get an alignment but it will be close.

Hopefully that helps.
