A number of alignment issues or worn parts can cause pulling, and it may just need an alignment. A brake caliper not fully releasing can pull on that side also .

REPLACED STEERING GEAR BOX IN 2003 CADILLAC ESCALADE NOW WHEEL IS OFF CENTERED


IF you have a rack and pinion steering pull the steering shaft of the pinion splines and centre the wheels . Centre the wheel and put the steering shaft back on the splines. If it is master splined then centre the steering wheel and adjust each side tie rod until the wheels are centred . (one in -other out ). Remember that when the wheels are straight ahead then the steering wheel will be slightly to the left (USA) to compensate for the camber of the road.. IF a steering box pull the pitman arm off --centre the wheels and the steering wheel and refit the pitman arm

How do I replace the ignition lock cylinder assembly in a Toyota T100


Instructions
  1. Removing the Cylinder
    • Lift the hood and prop it open. Disconnect both battery cables from their terminals. Wait at least three minutes for all residual electricity to discharge before you begin working near the airbag.
    • 2Locate the two airbag attaching screws, one on each side of the steering wheel. Pry off the plastic covers to reveal a Torx screw. Use a Torx screwdriver to loosen these two screws, which you can't remove completely. They will stop when fully retracted and remain attached to the steering wheel.

    • 3Lift the airbag out of the steering wheel. Disconnect the airbag wires from the harness by lifting up the plastic tabs on each side and pulling the two sections apart. Place the airbag face up in a safe location.
    • 4Unplug the horn electrical connector, which you will see once you remove the airbag.
    • 5Point the front wheels straight ahead. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut using a socket. Place a mark on the steering wheel and the steering wheel shaft so you will be able to realign them during reassembly.
    • 6Attach the steering wheel puller. There are bolt holes on each side of the steering wheel shaft. Screw the bolts on the puller into these holes and turn the puller handle clockwise to force the steering wheel off the shaft.
    • 7Remove the steering column covers by detaching the two screws on the front of the column. You will see these once you remove the steering wheel. There is one additional screw under the steering column. Pry off the ignition switch bezel. This is the plastic piece that surrounds the ignition cylinder. You should be able to pull it off using your fingers. If not, use a small flat-head screwdriver.
    • 8Unplug the connector from the ignition switch. This connector simply pulls out of the wiring harness, without any clips to remove.
    • 9Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "ACC" position. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole located on the bottom of the ignition switch casing to depress the release button. With the button depressed, use the key to pull the cylinder out of the casing.
    Installing the Cylinder
    • 10Insert the key into the new cylinder and turn it to the "ACC" position. Insert the cylinder into the casing. When it seats, you should hear and/or feel a click. Try to pull the cylinder out. If you cannot do so, it is properly seated. Reconnect the ignition switch wire to the wiring harness. Snap the plastic ignition bezel back into place.
    • 11Replace the steering column covers and the three screws.
    • 12Place the steering wheel back over the steering wheel shaft, ensuring that the marks you made earlier are aligned.Turn the handle of the steering wheel puller counterclockwise until the steering wheel is fully seated. Detach the puller. Replace the steering wheel retaining nut.
    • 13Connect the horn wires.
    • 14Connect the airbag wires to the wiring harness and place the airbag into the steering wheel. Tighten the Torx screws on each side of the steering wheel and replace their covers.
    • 15Reconnect the battery cables.

How to install part sw5928 cruise control switch to a 1998 ford ranger


1 Open the hood and loosen the clamp bolt on the negative battery cable with an adjustable wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction. Pull the cable straight up and off of the terminal and push it aside. Wait 15 minutes, before continuing this procedure, to allow the air bag circuitry to deactivate.
2 Pry the two plastic screw covers from the rear of the steering wheel spokes in the passenger compartment with a flat blade screwdriver. Remove the two screws revealed after removing the covers with an 8 mm socket attached to a ¼-inch drive ratchet wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction.
3 Lift the horn pad straight up from the top of the steering wheel. Carefully pull the air bag wiring harness connector from the bottom of the horn pad. Set the horn pad aside.
4 Remove the two screws holding each cruise control switch (there are two switches, one on each side of the steering wheel) with a Torx screwdriver turned in a counterclockwise direction. Lift up on the switch and pull the wiring connector apart with your thumb and forefinger. Repeat this action for both switches. Remove the switches from the steering wheel.
5 Install the new switches (make sure the "On/Off" switch is on the right-hand side) onto the steering wheel using the original mounting holes. Tighten the holding screws with a Torx screwdriver turned in a clockwise direction.
6 Push the air bag wiring connector back into the bottom of the horn pad until it is fully seated. Place the horn pad into position on the steering wheel. Tighten the holding screws from the back of the steering wheel with an 8 mm socket and ratchet. Push the two screw covers into the back of the steering wheel until they snap into place.
7 Place the negative battery cable back onto the terminal and tighten the clamp nut in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench. Close the hood.

Power steering


Hello Mohamede.

Not sure what your question is here.

I will post a couple of common issues with the Elantra steering problems.
Hopefully one of these following problems will assist you.

1. SERVICE TIP - POWER STEERING OIL PUMP WHINE NOISE DESCRIPTION:
Before replacing a power steering oil pump for a "whine" noise condition, check the oil pump reservoir filter screen for contamination. If the filter screen at the bottom of the oil pump reservoir is clogged, it may cause the pump to aerate and cause a "whine" noise.
If the filter screen is clogged, replace the reservoir and reconfirm the condition.

2.Subject
ABSOLUTE STEERING POSITION (ASP) CALIBRATION FOR ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS) DESCRIPTION:
This bulletin provides the Absolute Steering Position (ASP) calibration method for 2007-2009 ELANTRA (HD) and 2009 ELANTRA TOURING (FD) Electric Power Steering (EPS or Motor-Driven Power Steering). This procedure is required when the battery is discharged or after the battery or EPS-related parts are replaced.
NOTE:
If the EPS ASP calibration is not conducted when the battery is discharged or after the battery or EPS-related parts are replaced, the EPS and or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) warning lamp will be turned on and the automatic EPS return-to-center control will not be performed. VEHICLES AFFECTED:
Model: 2007-2010 ELANTRA (HD), 2009-2010 ELANTRA TOURING (FD)
3. Subject:
DIAGNOSIS AND CORRECTION OF VEHICLE PULL This bulletin supersedes TSB 05-50-012 to include 2009 models
DESCRIPTION:
Several factors may cause vehicle pull, both vehicle related and external conditions. The purpose of this bulletin is to assist in identifying the vehicle related conditions that cause pull and how to correct those conditions.
CAUSES OF VEHICLE PULL:
Vehicle pull is the tendency of the vehicle to drift right or left while driving in a straight ahead direction on a straight road at a constant speed with no pressure on the steering wheel. This pull or drift may be gradual and can always be compensated for by inputs through the steering wheel. One or more of the following conditions may cause the vehicle to pull:
Non-vehicle conditions that may cause the vehicle to pull:
^ Cambered road surfaces - Most highways are built with cambered or "crowned" surfaces to drain rain water. Sometimes the road camber is visually noticeable. Other times, it is not. The vehicle may tend to pull to the left or right, depending on the camber of the road surface. ^ Cross-winds - A sometimes overlooked, yet possible cause of steering drift is cross-winds. Side winds at higher vehicle speeds may cause vehicle pull. Please do not rule out cross-winds when diagnosing a vehicle pull. Vehicle pull caused by these two conditions is not related to vehicle adjustments and no repair should be made.
Vehicle conditions that may cause the vehicle to pull:
^ Tire inflation pressure - As small as a 2 pounds/square inch tire inflation pressure difference between the right and left tires may cause a vehicle to pull. Be sure to check the tire pressure before the tires are warmed up prior to attempting more extensive diagnosis. ^ Wheel alignment - Slightly out of specification wheel alignment causes very few vehicles to pull. Therefore, if the vehicle wheel alignment has been adjusted as close as possible to specification, DO NOT attempt to correct the vehicle pull by changing the wheel alignment angles by bending suspension components or other non-approved methods. ^ Uneven brake adjustment - If one of the four brakes is dragging, the vehicle may pull to the side of the dragging brake. Verify that none of the brakes are dragging and that they are adjusted correctly prior to attempting more extensive diagnosis. ^ Incorrect vehicle trim height - If the trim height of the vehicle is not equal on all sides, the vehicle may pull to the side of the lower trim height. Check and adjust the trim height of the vehicle as necessary. Please note that a slight variation in the vehicle trim height seldom causes a noticeable vehicle pull.
^ Tire construction - The way in which the tire is built can produce vehicle pull. An example of this is the placement of the under tread belt. An off-center radial tire belt can cause the tire to develop a side force while rolling straight down the road and the tire will tend to roll like a cone. To correct this condition, please use the flow chart. This chart provides the sequence of procedures designed to be performed for all conditions of vehicle pull. ^ Tire size - Different size tires or different make of tires, on either axles, may cause a vehicle pull.

93 Jeep Cherokee - steering problems


Check both front wheels with the steering wheel centered. One or both may appear to be pointing in the wrong direction slightly. Check both sleeves on the tie rod ends to make sure they are tight and not able to turn. (adjustment sleeves are slightly different than on most cars. One sleeve extends from the drivers side across the front and is about 21/2' long the other is shorter and is about 5" to the passenger side of the pitman arm on the steering box. If either moves, turn it 'till the wheels are fairly straight, tighten the bolts that are on the clamp around the slotted tube, and bring it to an alignment shop and have the toe in re-set.
A condition such as this is nothing to mess with. loss of steering is extremely dangerous.

Hot front wheel


The only thing likely to generate heat in the front whell hub is the brake disk, if this is not a result of driving habit (accelerating and braking hard) then you probably have a caliper binding slightly.
A quick way to establish this is if the car drifts to one side if you let go of the steering wheeel on a straight road or it pulls to one side when braking. If it is a binding caliper it is quite easily remedied by taking off the calipers and cleaning and greasing the slides.
