About Tie Rods

Tie rods are an integral part of a motor vehicle’s steering system. The Audi tie rod component bears the responsibility for connecting the steering system to the vehicle’s wheels on either side of the vehicle and are pivotal in the operation of the vehicle’s steering.

In a typical steering system a rack and pinion gear set is enclosed within a metal tube. Each end of the rack protrudes from the ends of the tube. Both ends of the steering rack are connected to a rod, known as a tie rod and the one on the of the vehicle is known as the Auditie rod. When the pinion, which is linked to the steering column, responds to the turning of the steering wheel it rotates, which has the effect of moving the steering rack from side to side. The tie rods on either side of the steering rack connect to spindles on the car wheels. The transverse movement of the rack thereby causes the wheels to turn right and left according to the direction in which the vehicle is being steered. If the steering wheel is turned to the right the Auditied rod will force the offside wheel to turn.

Audi tie rods are liable to bend, warp or break if the vehicle hits a kerb or a pothole and this type of tie rod damage would render the car incapacitated and necessitate replacement.

Audi trivia

  • Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
  • Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
  • The Olympics Committee tried to sue Audi in 1995, claiming that the four rings logo was too similar to the Olympic rings. Audi easily won.
  • The classic Audi ‘four-ring’ logo is instantly recognisable and is meant to symbolise the four companies that make up the main trading arms of Audi.
  • The oldest car race event in the world, the 24hr Le Mans, has been won by Audi an impressive 13 times, most of which were in the classic R8 racer.
