Loosen the jamb nut behind the outer tie rod end.
Remove the nut that holds the bottom of the outer tie rod end to the steering knuckle.
Remove the outer tie rod end from the steering knuckle. Volvo has a special press tool but you can leave the nut on the end of the tie rod end and give it a couple of whacks with a short 5 lb. sledge hammer. It will pop right out.
Remove the outer tie rod end without letting the jamb nut move.
Measure and record the distance from the end of the inner tie rod to the jamb nut. Remove the jamb nut.
