  1. Thank You very much for your help, it works without having to remove the rack and pinion. but when I centered the steering wheel then remove the jack the steering wheel is off again, is this because that my tires are worn out?
  2. thanks for the reply I've been busy cleaning the garage and house so my daughter can move back in. I was hopping to fix it soon so i can go to the river. since everything has been install back to the car, can I just loosen the nut where the steering connected to the rack and pinion without taking everything apart? sorry I'm not lazy but want to find a quickest way to adjust this. because if I have my car apart to long the city will give me another ticket even though its parked in my driveway. thanks
  3. I'm sorry I don't understand when you said "Loosen and unmesh the splined shaft on the rack from the steering linkage" is that the bolt that goes from the pinion to the steering so this way I can can centered the wheel? another word I don't have to remove the rack and pinion and the tie rod end. Please bear with me. Thank you
  4. Thank you for the reply, I did lock the steering wheel and counted the numbers of turn on the tie rod ends, but I don't know why it's so off. I will do what you suggested and get back to you. Thank you
  5. I just replaced rack and pinion on my 2000 pathfinder but my steering wheel is 108 degree off how can i adjusted without removing the whole rack and pinion? I took it for alignment and they won't do it until i centered it. thanks
