I'm trying to remove the tie rod assembly but there is a 17mm bolt that I just can't get to. There are 4 total and the one that is a PITA is the one circled in the picture below. It's tricky because the head faces up towards the engine and the access from above is completely blocked. Also there is not enough room from below to access it either. The only thing I can think of is removing the linkage that attaches the assembly to the frame (not shown in pic). This is what this bolt is attached to.

Bazzle is working on a fix for me, but in the meantime, any assistance would be greatly apprecated.

Thanks

Thanks Bazzle. It's not the ends but one of the center bolts. Too little space for a tie rod tool. Maybe since I'm replacing the assembly I can use a pickle fork as suggested in yout email?

Thanks
