Default Tierod end removal help!!!

Hey guys, aquired another golf cart. Its a 99 club car DS. I inspected the front steering and noticed the drives side tie rod end was loose. tired to tighten but all the threads on the end were bent. Ordered a new tierod but I cant remove the old end from the shaft( if thats what its called?) that has another tie rod end on it for the passanger side. I already have a new end to replace it with. Is there a trick to removing the end from that shaft? Thanks

thanks very much for the fast replies. Im trying to replace the drives side tie rod end, so I'm trying to remove it from the shaft. I'm guessing its just very hard to do because its an old cart and its just stuck or is there a trick to getting it unscrewed from the shaft? The replacement I have just looks like it screws right into the shaft one I remove the old end

If memory serves me correctly, one end of the tie rod is reverse threaded. Any chance you are just turning it the wrong direction?

you have to loosen the nut, and then unscrew the tie rod end off the tie rod, and yes one is left hand threads, and the other is right hand threads
