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.

Swerves alot while driving


Something seriously loose or worn:

- steering box mounts
- steering column universal joint or end clamp
- steering box inner ball joints
- tie rod ends
- outer ball joints
- wheel centre hub nut
- wheel stud nuts

A simple test is to jack up both front wheels and place the vehicle on axle stands. Then have someone hold the steering wheel, grab a front wheel at the 9-and-3 o'clock position, and shake it hard in and out. If you can feel slack or looseness, or the person holding the steering wheel can, you have a dangerous fault which should be fixed ASAP.

My steering wheel in my 2008 Ford Fusion SE has been locking up when I'm driving. The Ford place said that that year model does not have a steering wheel lock. Is this correct?


I don't know for a fact but this seems very odd to me that your vehicle would not have a steering wheel lock. Further, it is more odd that the wheel would lock unexpectedly while driving. Obviously, you cannot drive it in this condition. I recommend you take the car to the Ford Dealer and have them repair it even if it means replacing the steering column. You certainly don't want the thing locking up while you are driving ... all sorts of terrible pictures come to my mind ... running into oncoming traffic ... off the right hand side of the road ... off the bridge into the valley below ... into a group of chldren waiting for the bus ...

Please get this fixed as soon as you can.

Loose steering wheel on f250 turbo deisel truck. what would cause this and could it be the bearing?


yeah, more than likely the bearings you should be able to feel the bearings grinding as you turn the wheel. you can buy all the parts and hope you get everything you need or go to a junkyard and buy the whole thing and replace it 5 times faster.

Steering is loose


look at the steering knuckles on the tierod ends for play. they are probably worn. have your steering box sector shaft checked for runout. sometimes they have an adjustment on them. Bushing kits can be had from napa or any reputable off road shop.

You need to check all of you front steering components have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth. While you lay on the ground check all joints and components for play then check your steering shaft under the hood see how far steering wheel moves to each directions to when your tires start to move your gearbox has an adjustment on it that can be adjusted it looks like a screw with a nut at the bottom loosen nut a few turns and hold it with a wrench then take screwdriver and turn screw about 1/4 keep checking wheel for play you can tighten to much so keep checking that wheel turns back when you let go if you have any loose joints undernieth replace that part
