Replaceing inner tie rod end.

(2008 Mercury Mariner)
in Church Point, LA on August 30, 2011
I have slack in an inner tie rod end. The mechanic says it will be an expensive repair doe to the the inner TRD not being able to be removed from the rack and pinion. I will have to buy the whole rack and pinion and TRD together. I have never heard of this before. I see that I can buy the parts seperately. Am I missing something here?

Agree with Roy. There is a special tool made by a company called Lisle used to remove inner tie rod ends.
