To much play in the steering wheel 1996 suburban


There could be play in the steering box, but it is more likely to be worn/loose steering components (ball joints, tie-rod ends, etc.). Check the joint in the steering column for play as well.

91 astro steering column has loose play horizontal and vertical. Still steers ok I just don't want to find myself holding the steering wheel alone unattached on some back road with no cell coverage. Also...


The bearings in the steering column has gone bad. It would be cheaper to go to your local salvage yard to get a used steering column, they can be anywhere from 50 to 100 also you can go to www.car-part.com

Hello, I got a 89 mustang LX and the steering is very unresponsive. It has several inches of free play in the wheel before I get a response, I already checked power steering fluid and it is fine. -Cheers


This is more of a suggestion than an answer. You need to check on your steering column under the hood. Start your car an have someone turn steering wheel back and forth. Look at the steering knuckle at the end of your column. I am currently having the same issue, my steering wheel has alot of play to it and the knuckle is worn out. Im not sure if steering knuckle is the correct name but its the joint that connects your steering column to your rack an pinion i believe.

Much play in steering wheel; possibly the 3 set screws in the bottom of steering column? how to fix? this is on 1987 chev 1/2 ton


Replace steering column with a better one or you must break down the steering column all the way down untill you the screws in the bottom of the column and tighten them up. It is some work and you may need to video while you are taking it apart so you can remember how to reinstall it.Good Luck!!!

Steering wheel is loose and sometimes very hard to turn. how do i remove it with airbag in it


Just an fyi it is the steering wheel and column assembly. Nissan suv's and trucks are NOTORIOUS for having the upper bearings inthe steering column sheer and or go bad, HUGE safety issue.

Steering wheel is loose


If you mean it is about to fall off in your hands, it needs to be tightened firmly to the steering column. If you mean the wheel has a lot of play left and right, you have worn steering components and should visit a garage asap. Things like the tie rod ends are worn, ball joints etc are just a few of the critical parts that need attention in any vehicle.

Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

Clicking in steering column


Hi

Check the lower steering column universal joint coupling needle rollers !

Open the hood, and get someone to wiggle the steering wheel, and using a good torch, check the lower steering column joint, for any free play, or if you can hear or feel, the clicking, and check all the clamp bolts and nuts.

Good Luck!
A FixYa rating is appreciated ....Thank you !
