You'll need something like this Timmo

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-Universal- ... 1823063842

To release it and to tighten it up with.. Remember to use something to lock the thread or it'll unscrew in a few hundred miles.
I found that the the tool kept slipping as I was trying to undo the inner track rod end so I used a strip of old cycle inner tube to help it grip better.

Hope this helps, good luck,

Chris

I couldn't find anything to take the first inner joint off with so I had to resort to a grinder.. This is much easier as acccess is limited especially if you have large hands!!
