Steering Wheel Mechanism & Sound System

Dear Sir,

I just bought a pre-owned Mitsubishi Lancer, 1.6 Auto. The steering wheel does not readily return to centrre after turning. Can this be improved?

Secondly, the sound is not so good. How could I improve this? Does it need a complete overhaul?

If you have the time, please advise.

Thank you.

Raj

Take your car for a wheel alignment for the steering problem and for the sound system you can still upgrade it if it is a factory one.

Turn signal stays on


On a steering wheel are 2 pins. These pins turn the signals off as the wheel returns from making a left or right hand turn. They reset the blinker mechanism by bumping the blinker arm and pushing the arm back to the center position. You can sometimes see these little pins that reset the blinker if you look between the steering wheel and the steering wheel column. There is a little gap where the steering wheel is enabled to turn with out rubbing the column. You will also see a circular copper plate in there where the horn makes electrical contact by a little flat tension arm and rubs the copper surface as the wheel spins in either direction.
To repair a damage blinker pin, the steering wheel most likely has to be pulled off and the pin repaired and steering wheel returned back onto the column. Not a big job at all, just more of a pain then anything. Some steering wheels are on pretty tight on their splines and a puller may be needed. If the pins are still intact in the back of the steering wheel, then the blinker mechanism has a problem and is not be triggered to return to center by the pins.

Rack and pinion 2006 lancer


1. Jack the car onto stands and remove the front wheels.
2. Remove the drivers seat and the lower dash covers over the pedals.
3. THIS STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT. Place the steering wheel at center, and remove the key, to lock the steering column for the rest of the job. If you don't do this you WILL destroy the air bag clock spring under the steering wheel, and they are VERY expensive and fiddly to install.
4. Move the carpet / mats as necessary and undo the splined connection on the pinion shaft.
5. Drain the power steering fluid and disconnect the hoses from the rack. The hose connections will be very tight.
6. Undo the tie rod ends, and the two clamps that secure the rack to the frame. With some wiggling the rack can be removed.

00/01 Pontiac Bonneville. How do we get off the steering wheel?


Get a repair manual such as Haynes or Chiltons at a auto parts store to walk you through. Once you get the horn button off you will need a steering wheel puller. They sell them too.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.

If you haven't done so, check the power steering fluid, might be low, that will also cause a whining noise.

Need to check turn signal contacts in column,


Best thing to do, honestly, is to purchase a chilton's or haynes manual when you are working around the air bags. Better safe than sorry.
