The stub shaft spline or the steering wheel shaft spline is stripped and needs to be replaced.
Sounds like someone had the wheel off and stripped the splines on removal/installation at one time.
You can try to improvise a key way slot system on the shaft but you have to be certain it is secure, this will save you a lot of time and money, unless the steering wheel is at fault then r&r the wheel and try to locate a used one when installing it be sure you line up the spline notches.

This sounds like a wheel bearing close to complete disintegration. I advise you get the front end free of the ground so you can check for it by grasping the wheel and attempting to rock it from side to side. It isn't hard to imagine that if it is indeed that worn, that the wheel could separate possibly taking the axle and CV joint with it. Don't take any chances - it's urgent that you find the problem quickly.

check the belt on the PS-pump. Then on top of the steering sector box is a nut with a screw driver slot of a allen head slot. lossen the nut, & tighten the screw or allen slot by turning the slot counter clock wise, then tighten the nut back down. this should take the slack out of the steering wheel. Oh, check the fluid level in the PS-pump resivoir tank.

My 1999 ml 320 steering wheel spins all they way around 360 degrees and it makes a straining noises when it turns. and it's very loose. help


Check your power steering fluid. Screeching will come from the fluid being too low and would affect the steering. It will also burn out the pump if you don't keep it full.

Isuzu 3.0 TD 2005 - Steering wheel makes squeking sound when turning steering wheel to both sides. Quiet on strait roads. Sounds like plastic rubbing when turning steering wheel. Sprayed lubricant on...


Disconnect steering column down by brake pedals and turn wheel with steering disconnected.....if squeak is still there its in the upper steering column bearings...squirt silicon spray down the top tube [below the steering wheel] until it runs out thru the tube lower bearing.
P.S dont forget to reconnect the steering!!!

Keys stuck in ignition. its in park. ( and 3 days out of warrenty)


In the ring around the ignition switch (where your key is stuck) there is a recessed dimple. Get a ballpoint pen, insert into the dimple, hold it there while turning your key to the lock position (if it's not already there) and remove the key.

My 2003 Buick Regal makes a load whinning sound when I turn. WHat could be causing this?


Hi, it could be a wheel bearing. if you turn left and you hear it it will be your right front bearing and visa-versa. could be the power steering belt that needs replacing, good luck with it.

Cruise buttons


turn your steering wheel around to where the cruise control buttons are straight up and tilt wheel down makes it easier. Very carefully with a thin screwdriver pry it off (the clips break real easy so be gentle) once it comes off you will see the plug in. Unplug it.

Starts if you turn steering wheel


I will take a guess at this. You can't turn the key until you turn the steering wheel a little to the left or the right? This is usually caused by friction on the steering locking mechanism which keeps the key from turning in order to start the car. If this is not the case then you may have a bad ignition switch or cable head connecting to the switch that is not making contact until you move the steering wheel around and it makes contact allowing you to start the vehicle. Good Luck, RAC
