Watch this video to learn how to install a new TRQ outer tie rod on your 2013-18 Nissan Sentra.

You wanna keep in mind when you're doing this job after you're done, you're gonna wanna go to a local garage and have the vehicle aligned so you don't have premature tire wear. Take the wheel off. I'm gonna use a 21-millimeter socket. Remove the wheel. Now, you're gonna loosen up this jam nut. I'm gonna use a 17-millimeter wrench. And it's loose enough. Use a little rust penetrant on here. Soak that down for a little bit. I'll use a 14-millimeter socket, take that nut off. And just take a hammer and just hit it out. Just give it a tap. Now, I'm gonna remove the outer tie rod. Just count the turns when you take it out. One, two, three and so on just so that you know where it was when you go to put it back together. Four, 5, 17, 18, 19. And just take the tie rod end and just count the turns, 1, 2, 3, 17, 18, 19. Just move the jam nut a little closer. And I'll just take this castle nut off first and slide it into the knuckle. Put the castle nut back on. And torque this nut to 25 foot-pounds. And take the new cotter pin and line it up. Use some side cutters. Just bend the tab over. Then you can cut off the excess. And just use a 18-millimeter wrench, tighten up the jam nut. If you have the ability to torque this, torque this to 31 foot-pounds. Put the wheel back on, and the lug nuts. Now, I'm gonna torque these lug nuts to 83 foot-pounds in a star pattern to tighten the wheel down evenly. Just go around again, double-check.
