This one hits home. They usually start honking the horn randomly as well. There are a ton of covers to remove under dash then you follow the steering shaft to 3 sets of bolts that bolt the shaft in to wings off the sides. Once you remove these bolts the steering column will pretty much fall on your head. Watch out for that. It hurts. There's going to be a few plugs to unplug from the harness and remove the small string that connects the shift indicator, watch out this one breaks easy. I would suggest disconnecting the negative battery cable before you start this process because you may shock yourself or accidently explode the airbag. Hope this helps, be careful and good luck! Oh by the way, let me know how this turns out for you. I'll be checking in from time to time.

when slowing to make right turn is it more like a clicking noise, does it do it while turning or just when slowing down. If it is while you are turning it is most likely the right cv axle drive shaft popping. When at a stop with ac on does it shake if you put it in park and how do the rpms read in park or in drive. Did they change the trans mount also dont thank that is it just trying to get a better understanding so I can better assist you.

if wheel is offline then the person who done the tracking is responsable and take the car back to them and get them to put it right .the correct way is to adjust each track rod end a little bit not all the adjustment on one track end ,which throws out the wheel alignment .this means that you lose steering lock on one side .THIS IS COWBOY BODGE JOB .If they cant or wont put it right then take it to someone who can and report them to the office of fair trading and make a legal claim for the job to be put right

Testimonial: "cheers thanks for the advice."
For the leaking power steering it could be a pinhole in the hose, the sound in your left wheel sounds like a bearing is going down, or, the brake caliper is malfunctioning and holding pressure against the rotor while it is turning.

If the water got high enough to cover the front of the engine or was shot up high enough by hitting the puddle it will cause the belt or belts to slip on the pulleys so you can loose power steering or the alt will show low amperage output and will turn on the battery light.
