Some front end part is worn, probably ball joint(s). Jack up and put on stands, have helper put long bar or 2x4 under front wheel and raise wheel up and down while you look for loose motion. If none found, have helper wigle steering wheel back and forth while you look for loose play in steering parts.
Front steering / suspension is only as good as its weakest link. There are many components working together that can be problematic here is a list of liikely culprits & things to check, tried to put easy stuff first:
Sounds as if you have bent some control arms
Or even broken the steering gear rack both front wheels must be off the ground to ***** the situation
The best way to recognize a bent part if you are not familiar with it is to compare to the opposite side
check the main fuses in both fuse boxes, the one in the vehicle and the one under the hood. I'm not positive on your vehicle which one contains the blown fuse, check them with a meter if you have one, Now,, when you say steering controls are you saying that whatever is attached to your steering wheel has stopped working ( radio controls, stuff like that ?) unless they disassembled anything on your steering unit , they are probably right and its just one of those things. but if they did take anything to do with the steering wheel apart, I'd ask them again to double check the work, now if by steering controls your saying the car isn' steering correctly, then it has everything to do with the work they did, and I'd take it right back to them.
Hello most likely it is going to be more serious than a wheel bearing you really should take you vehicle in to have the front end examined this is nothing to play with if a tire rod snaps of you might find your self with no steering control at all.Most garages usually do not charge to quote your problem if you do not like the quote try another lace for reassurance
You mean the steering wheel is rocking back and forth? I hope, because if it is slipping left and right, it is not the wheel but the steering control arm, Or something else down under the car. To get to the wheel, take off the horn, I don't think you have airbags, a couple screws in the back should do it, then get to the nut, torque that thing up, you should be all set. Hope this helps.
This sounds like you need new track rod ends, this would cause free play in the steering, also it could be the bottom suspension arms. the garage should have checked these though! if the wheel is vibrateing then it may need the wheels rebalanced. if it is that you steering will shake at 60mph
I think the problem you have is the steering assembly being loose.
To repair this, you must remove the steering wheel and work slowly down the column assembly, removing the indicator switch, ignition switch and other assorted springs and things. Lay out the removed parts in the order and orientation you remove them, take digital pictures or draw sketches at all stages, watch the spring placements. I also unplug the column looms to give you more room by moving the switches away for the area in the column where you are working.
Once you get far enough down the column you will see the three bolts that are loose, hidden in a sub assembly. I have only been able to tighten two of these over the years. This is a common fault.
Rebuild the column using the reverse of the order you removed it.
