Tip & How-To about Chevrolet C1500
If you have a full size GMC or Chevy pick-up you can get the bump feeling out of your steering. What you do to fix problem is pretty simple. First get your steering wheel strait. Then turn the wheel slighty to right so that the air bag is sitting vertical. Open hood and look for the steering shaft coming thru firewall. At the joint where two shafts meet will be a 15mm nut. Take nut loose and pull pin out of shafts. (Careful when removing nut the pin will fall out easliy). Once bolt is out carefully seperate shafts. (Note: be carefully not to let shaft rotate to much because it can damage air bag coil in steering wheel). Once shafts are apart stroke the shaft back and forth into firewall side of truck about 5 to 6 times. Reassemble and noise will be gone for another 20,000 to 40,000 miles.
