I would say the latter. The shaft should move. I had this problem but not this car. You should be able to retreive the shaft by going under the hood and pushing it back through. If not you have to take everything in front of you off. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: How to replace a middle bearing in drive shaft.

Replacing the mid-ship carrier bearing is not that hard.

You will need to unbolt the U-joints, seperate the drive shafts.
Unbolt bearing retainer. Take this to a good auto parts shop that has a machine shop. Tell them you need a new one and they will do the rest.

If you feel this rattle while driving at low speed or turning at low speed it is likely a worn out steering shaft coupler, it is very common.

My power steering pulley has begun to back off the pump shaft on my 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Duramax 6.6. Has anyone else had this problem and what did you replace?


Sounds like bearing is the problem but check all the other components driven from the same belt are sitting straight

2001 SILVERADO STEERING RATTLES. DOES NEW STEERING SHAFT AND BEARING CORRECT PROBLEM


I have a 2001 Silverado. Was making noises when I turned and hit bumps in road. Was annoying. Read up on the net about possible causes and found this issue with the intermediate steering column.

First went to the dealer who wanted $250/and a half day to do it. This encouraged me to read about how to do the fix and when confident and tired of the problem I ordered the part. It came in a few days. It took me about an hour to do alone.

What others do not mention is be sure to loosen the bolts to the old part before strapping the wheel (the strapping is to prevent freewheeling/turning when steering wheel is disconnected). You will have to first connect the new piece to the upper end after sliding it through the firewall from the top, then loosen the strap holding the steering wheel to allow you to turn the wheel enough to align the bottom to the lower steering link. The part fits perfectly with a little tapping to elongate the sliding part into the bottom fitting using a hammer and a pair of vice grips. I could do the next one in 30 mins easy.
This was well worth the time and dollars.

Love my new truck now.

Before messing with the steering box check all tie rod ends, pitman arm, king pins.
Have someone slowly move steering wheel back and forth while you watch for excessive movement in you components.
Worn tires, underinflated tires will also give a loose feeling

Rubbing or grinding noise in steering wheel


Hi, this could be a combination of many issues. i would check the following.

Check the strut mounts. there could be some damage here concerning the mounts. i would also check the control arm bushings as well. check for damage here. I would also inspect the CCV half Shaft as well. this is a known problem spot(re manufactured)CCT.

The last problem spot here will be the actual wheel bearings in the front. they may be worn or dry. this could cause the symptoms you stated as well.

you will find the issue in one or all of the above problem spots stated.

Please rate and god bless:)

Steering column noise


Same problem. The shaft they lubed is called the intemediate steering shaft. Not a safety issue according to GM. The shaft has to be removed and lubed using a kit and procedure from GM. Not a big deal to do but there are some precautions that need to be taken concerning the air bags/steering coil.
