    2004 VW Jetta mk4 bad tie rod?

    I have a 2004 VW Jetta GLS 1. 8T. I took it for an oil change, and I was told that I needed to replace my "right tie rod assembly", and also the "Pendulum engine mount/VF Pendulum mount. I've been hearing a loud popping noise on the right.


    A tie rod is just as it sounds, it "ties" the steering rack to the wheels. There are two ends two any rod, and two ends to your tie rod. A tie rod assembly will be the rod and both ends.

    Tie rods affect handling? what are tie rods?

    I just noticed that my car shakes when im on freeway , when i went to do my oil change they told me my tie rods are damaged. What exactly are tie rods.

    Car Question?

    Since I am a lady, I don't understand car termonology sometimes. Ok here's the question. What is a "tierod". The guy said that I need to get it fixed. Would it be safe to drive otherwise or will it mess up the car if it isn't fixed.


    The tie rods on the front end are part of the steering linkage/assembly. They keep your wheels pointing in the same direction while you are driving. If a tie rod lets go while you're driving.

An interesting building in Well Street, next to the Red Lion. It boasts a Lacons Brewery sign and gryphons(?) on the tie rod ends. At the time of the google street view it was used by the "Assembly of God"
