I need to remove my steering wheel on a 2004 Ford Escape I loosened the nob and the steering wheel comes loose but not all the way off it clicks like it feels like it is hitting something anyone know


If I am not mistaken you have an air bag on that vehicle, if you pinch a wire and short the air bag it will go off, and something you definitely want to avoid. I am leaving you a link to a video showing how to remove the steering wheel from an 06 model.. I am pretty sure they are the same..

Air bag deployment 2006 ford escape


You can still drive the car, just cut the air bag off. There is a lot more in repairing a deployed SRS than just replacing the steering wheel.

Everytime I turn slowly I hear this creaking sound. The ride is smooth my steering wheel is great. My power steering is capped off. I dont know what the problem could be. I don't hear it right off when I...


I had a similar problem on my 2002 Escape, but it was also creaked when cold. It turned out to be an outer tie rod joint. It may also be a lower ball joint. My creaking would happen when turning the steering wheel even a quarter turn. I reached behind the tire and put my hand on the tie rod while my wife slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth. I could feel the very obvious vibration. Try the other side to see if you can feel the difference. Can you hear it when standing outside the car, and tell which side?

I get a grinding noise and slight vibrations that I can feel under my feet. This usually happens at low speeds, but has become more noticeable now at c. 30 mph.


You need wheel bearings.. One for sure maybe 2. Do you feel it in the steering wheel or floor? The floor usually means rear and the steering wheel usually means front. Hope this helps. It should change pitch when you drive left to right at a steady speed. :-) Cobra

POWER STEERING ASSIST GOES AWAY WHEN PARKING


The PS system probably has air bubbles in it. The air needs to be bled from the PS hoses and cylinders. You will also find it easier if you turn OFF the A/C when you are parking.
In a safe place (your driveway), Put gear in Park, set parking brake, replenish the power steering reservoir with fluid (not transmission fluid) and start engine. "Work" the steering wheel full counter-clockwise / full clockwise a few times. The "groans" you hear are voids of air travelling / escaping through the system. After it has quieted down, turn off engine, replenish fluid and do once more before test driving. Be sure to replenish fluid before testing / parking.

2002 ford f250 v10 when making turns in four wheel drive the front end starts poping as you turn. you can feel it in the steering wheel and hear it.


Four wheel drive is designed to drive on grave or mud. You will always have a feeling within the steering wheel and the truck will feel as though it is hopping , this is normal on dry pavement. How ever you shouldn't hear noise this is an indication that your universal joint on your front differential shaft is worn. You should have both changed if you are considering driving it in four wheel drive a lot in the conditions that the vehicle was designed to drive in, slippery, muddy,ect.

When u press on the brakes on my expedition, i hear air escaping.


If it is a constant hiss with your foot on the pedal, you have a bad brake booster. If you hear a hiss, and nothing else while holding the pedal, it is the air escaping from the booster boot, and should not pose a problem.
