Tie Rods DIY 2000 V40 1.9T

MVS Forums member wildgoats2 goes off the rails with details on his V40 tie rods DIY tutorial, inner and outer. And saves $400 by doing the job himself:

I did my inner/outer tie rods on our 2000 v40 1.9t with 80k miles. They were most definitely the originals and taken a beating over the last few months. Passenger side were both bad, diver’s side just the outer was bad, with the inner in decent shape. Lamforder brand boots $10 ea. Uro outer tie rod ends $15 each. Uro inners $25 each. If you get Myle outer ends it does not come with the cotter pin whole, rather a locking nut.
After reading some online write ups, i decided i could do it and save myself about $400. None of the write ups i read were for V40/S40 specifically. The V40/S40 have some challenges that could cost a home mechanic a whole lot time n money.
If there’s a good write up then just ignore this one.
