How much?? :(

Hi, I clipped the curb yesterday and obviously did some damage to the hub cap but now if I drive over 45 mph, it judders the steering wheel... probably bent the axle or something? could anyone give me an idea of how much it would cost to repair this?

Thanks

    it ended up being a dented rim so just changed the rim with the Spare's so it was 50 quid labour! ... then had to get a spare rim and tyre from the scrap yard for #20

The only way to know how much damage was done would be to bring it to garage equipped w/ a front end alignment machine, or an auto body shop that can give u an estimate of repairs. U probably bent the lower control arm which would throw the alignment out, and is causing the shaking of your steering wheel, the axle is probably ok. Let me know what u find. good luck! countrycurt0

Why would my steering wheel vibrate back and fourth


Obviously you have several things can cause this:
1) Bent Wheel,
2) Loose or Missing Lug Nuts,
3) Lost Balance Weight(s),
4) Wheels Badly Out of Balance,
5) Bad Front Wheel Bearings.
6) CV Joints badly worn.
Basically, anything to do with proper balance of the front wheels can cause this. Usually this condition exists somewhere around 45 MPH +/- about 5 MPH. Have a reliable ASE Technician check it out as soon as possible. If a wheel were to come off at any speed it could be instant disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Being a front wheel drive car, the CV Joints could be worn out. You don't give the Miles on your vehicle. Typically CV Joints and Hub Kits (Wheel Bearings) do wear out. If you have in excess of 100,000 miles replace what needs it. Get an estimate First and consider if is worth fixing as a 1999 Breeze may not be worth the investment of the required repairs.

While driving I make a turn around 45 mph and the cars front right side starts to shake. Also, when Im driving 60 mph on the highaway it starts to shake every 5-7 seconds. What can be the problem?


almost certainly a wheel bearing that is just about to break up.could also be track rod end if you have any play in steering.you need to jack up the car(wheel off the ground)and with your hands at 9-3 oclock, rock from side to side,any "play"will be OBVIOUS. enlist the "eye" or "hands" of a volunteer to help,makes it easier.

Hit the curb on that snow day pretty hard that it bent the rim and chipped some of the hub cap what should I do


Hi,
If the rim is bent severely, it could cause wear on your tire. If you are unsure of the severity, you might take the vehicle to a tire shop and have the wheel checked on a rotating balance type machine.
Worse case scenario, replace the rim (I'd get one from a wrecking yard). If the hub cap asthetics bother you, the salvage yard may also have one of those.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Vibrating steering wheel when the speed is above 70 mph


The wheel having been rotated to the rear of the car would eliminate it as the problem. I believe you may have 'tweeked' something when you hit the curb. Have a front end alignment. This would reveal if anything was damaged when the curb was hit, and it might just be in need of an adjustment to solve the problem. If a component was damaged, the tech should know when doing the alignment. Let me know how you make out.

Hydro planed and rear wheel hit curb, bent in 45 degrees


on rear wheel drive the hub and bearing assembly is connected to an axle.the axle will have to be replaced more than likely.in a front wheel drive with independent rear suspension,an upper and or lower control arm and hub.either way is expensive and your insurance deductible will be alot cheaper than the 2500 to 3000 dollars it will take to repair it.
