I don’t see any threads on this and forgive me if there already is...

How are you guys removing them? My st inner tie rods don’t have the notches for the inner tie rod removal tools for example. So I’m not sure how they are supposed to be removed..

In the shop we have used an air chisel with a sharp bit or there is a specialty tool that grips into the tie rod itself to remove it.

You used a chisel to make notches to use a standard removal tool?

I ran into this issue on my daughter's PT Cruiser, it too had the round inner tie rods. I was able to remove them without the special tool, but I don't remember how. Maybe Vise-Grips?
