330xi needs new left front tie rod.?
Hello, I got new ties this past week and went to get the wheels aligned, The guys at the alignment shop said that my left front tie rod was seized up. Can anyone tell me the part number for a new tie rod? I searched this site and realoem and can up with nothing?

You probably don't need a new tie-rod!

Go to a BMW shop and tell them to heat it up with a torch and it will come free.

You may even still be in spec on the front left. Did you get a printout?

This is typical tire shop BS. You MAY need a new tie-rod if it has to be heated up so much that it damages the threads, but this is not usually the case. It's BS to assume it already needs replacement. Especially on a casually driven car with no previous sign of odd tire wear.
