I believe on a dodge intrepid that there is a bolt that holds the inner tie rod to the steering rack, and a nut that holds the outer to the steering knuckle. If I remember correctly the inners are a pain.

Question tie rod sleeve?

You didn't say what kind of vehicle it was. I don't know how civicminded knew it was an Intrepid? Inner and outer? Are you talking ends? Not enough info. for me! SORRY!

Oops! Didn't read the complete post. Anyway, haven't worked on Dodges, but the chevys have a screw on universal type joint at the rack and a typical tie rod ent at the other(wheel) that is adjustable/removeable. I use a ball joint type split wedge to separate the tie rod end from it's receiver. Hope this helps.

OK..........IF it's an Intrepid or one of the frt whl drive PITA's You'll be able to see the 2 22 mm bolts that secure the inner tie rod to the rack by turning the wheel all the way right or left........I always found it easier to bring the bolts as far to the right as possible..........
The bolts will have tabs on them to keep them from backing out. These you will have to get around with either a pair of cutting pliers (gently) or needle nose
You will have to loosen BOTH sides to reassemble so I advise you do this on disassembly for ease of extraction.
HOWEVER ...........DO NOT remove both inner ends at the same time or yoy'll be a VERY old man by the time you realign all the items that are involved........
AND there's a flat washer BEHIND the inner end ........DON"T LOSE IT!!!!Beer 4U2
