Remove open spring clip - 1 - from boot.

Set toe by twisting the left and/or right tie rod.

For this purpose, an open-end wrench can be placed on hex head of tie rod.

Be sure that boots are not twisted after turning tie rods!

Twisted boots wear out quickly.

Check toe value again.

Setting may change slightly after lock nut is tightened.

If the measured toe nevertheless lies within the tolerance, the adjustment is correct.
