C5 X7: Inner tie rods

Post by j001 »

Hi guys,
I want to change tie rods, I got this tool:

But in servicebox they use also another tool (see attachment). Is it necessary? Do I need this tool also? Do I risk damaging something by not using it? I haven't seen such thing in any tie rod removal videos.

It's to prevent damage to the steering mechanism during the slackening-tightening of the track rod. If it wasn't required, they wouldn't be using it officially...
