Steering wobbles when driving


Improperly balanced wheels can cause the wheels to wobble at speed which can be felt through the steering wheel. A local tyre shop can test the wheels for balance and make the necessary adjustments to the wheels by adding weights to even out the balance.

Scrapping sounds whenever brakes beein applied


DONT drive it any more, except straight to the nearest brake shop.

Brakes can wear out in a year depending on the hardness of the pads fitted. Many are soft to prevent any squealing.

If your model has wear indicators fitted to the brakes, these will squeal or scrape when the brakes are worn.

If not, I think your brakes are possibly worn down to the metal. This has to be attended to ASAP.

The wobbling over 65mph indicates a front wheel balance is needed, and maybe an alignment. This would be fairly routine after a year of driving.

The ABS light may be a separate fault, or related to brake wear. Either way, don't ignore this. Brakes are not to be messed with.

The noises when turning left and right, in a FWD car, indicate your CV joints may be failing. The classic test is to get in a parking lot, and do slow circles at full lock, left then right, listening out the window. Clicking or grinding noises will indicate you probably need replacement front axles, about $150 parts plus labour.

Shop around.

I have a constant wobble at the steering wheel when driving in a straight line which does disapear when turning also the steering is sometimes jumpy and also have a loud sqealing noise on either full lock...


The noise at full lock is the pump screaming for mercy. All power steering pumps will complain a bit if the steering is held at full lock. Now, if the belt to the pump is loose, it will scream even louder, because holding the steering at full lock will cause the belt to slip. There is also a technical service bulletin for your vehicle concerning loud power steering noise which involves replacing the fluid lines and.or fluid cooler. This is not cause for concern, but an aggravation to the ears.

The "wobble" thing in the steering wheel is a whole different story. If it is wobbling all the time, it would almost have to be a tire/wheel or axle problem. I know you said this is not the problem, but I think you need to look again. Try rotating the tires to the back and see if the wobble changes. A very severerly warped brake rotor can cause this also, but will be much worse during braking. A bad axle shaft can also cause a wobble in the steering. This is consistent with your description of the problem changing during turns...A bad axle shaft can do this. Also check for looseness in the front wheel bearings.

Wobble while driving. After inspecting saw that the right front boot on the axle was weather cracked, assuming no more grease inside, what parts do I need to replace?


A CV boot will generally not cause a wobble. If the boot is not cracked open there is plenty of grease inside. If the boot was leaking grease you would see it slung all over the back side of the knuckle, brake caliper, and inside of the wheel.

If the steering wheel is moving back and forth at slow speeds the first thing I would check for is a separated tire or a bent wheel. If you feel the tread of the tire it should feel smooth all the way around. If there is a high spot or bump it is separated.

The easiest thing to do is have the tires balanced. Tell them you are getting a wobble in the steering wheel. They will inspect the front tires closely and if they find an issue have them show you what they found.

What is wrong when vibration of chasis is noticed when driving at a low speed of 20-30miles per hour, whell balancing and allignment have been done


Please check if the engine mountings and the drvies are not wobbling at this speed. You must lift up each wheel and test for noise or wobbling of the bearings. Also assuming that your tyres are new , if not replace the tyres as there could be uneven wearing making this to react at slow speeds. You will need to check on the balance rods, the suspension springs / bushes and silencer mountings for any slackness. this might also produce the sympathetic vibration. Hope you get this right.Good day
