I am in the process of removing the passenger side outer tie rod. I have removed both nuts connecting the tie rod to the knuckle and other nut.

What direction do I turn the tie rod to screw it off? I am assuming the turn left.

:confused:

Let's use a little ingenuity here. With white nail polish or similar, mark the two threads closest to the tie rod. Let it dry and while counting, turn in one direction. The rest should be quite obvious.
