Default Inner Pass Side Tie Rod end...

Ok so what am i getting my self into if i try to do this my self?

Its my inner Pass side tie rod is going bad, it has a little slop in it and it makes my car shake just a little at highway speeds..


I looked at it and i said to my self " i dont think ill be able to fit my big arms up there"


Do i have to remove anything to replace it or do i just take the Joit cover off and un screw it and put new one in.
I know ill have to get an alinement after words or if i mesure everhing twice i should be able to put it back in the right spot...


-Thanks

The only inner that I have done was on a pickup which is a whole different ballgame. If I ever have an inner go, I'll probably let someone else struggle with it!
