Inner Tie Rod tool

Hi,

2009 R55 Clubman. Does anyone know what size tool is required or where I could get one. So far tried 2 sets. Both fails. Sizes included: From Amazon, Dual tie rod tool 1-3/16” and 1-5/16” hex; 3 adapters: 1-3/16”, 1-5/16” and 1-7/16” in 1-5/16” hex; red case

The other one was from Harbor Freight https://www.harborfreight.com/inner-...set-63705.html All sizes from both kits were to small or to big. Nothing seems to fit.
I know there are universal ones.
https://www.amazon.com/ABN-Inner-Tie-Rod-Tool/dp/B06XWBZ4YN/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=universal+inner+tie+rod+tool&qid=1554136324&s=gateway&sr=8-8 https://www.amazon.com/ABN-Inner-Tie-Rod-Tool/dp/B06XWBZ4YN/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=universal+inner+tie+rod+tool&qid=1554136324&s=gateway&sr=8-8

Any help is really appreciated!

Thanks,

Frank

I literally JUST completed replacing my inner tie rods over the weekend, haven't even been able to get the car int the alignment shop yet.

I used this tool:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DRDH6N8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DRDH6N8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Tool worked great, just needed to use all of my 1/2" socket extensions to get out past the brake rotor.

Where are you located? I could loan it to you...

I also just finished my tie rods.

I used a sawzall and a right angle grinder because when trying to spin the nut the hex stripped on the other end.
