Attempting to replace inner+outer tie-rods. Situation: outer tie rod is screwed-in and showing strong resistance to being unscrewed. The outer tie rod must be removed in order to apply the tie-rod tool to unseat the inner tie-rod.
It was suggested that the inner tie-rod could be severed \ sawed to remove the outer tie rod. If this was to be done is it possible \ practical to use a hack saw or does a motorized saw need to be used?
I would really like to hear from anyone that has done this before: please state this in your response if you have sawed-off a tie-rod.
