Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla
Recently, I had an incident in a parking lot in which someone backed into my driver's side door. I'm still "battling" the insurance company to get it fixed, but in the mean time I've noticed that at highway speeds, there is vibration in the steering wheel that I don't remember from before. What could be causing the vibration & does it need to be serviced immediately to resolve the issue?
I commute to work 100 miles a day, so I'm worried that if I don't get it fixed, it'll cause me a headache in the long run.
More often than not steering wheel vibration is caused by uneven wheel balancing. The accident might have caused some of the correcting lead weights on either of the front wheels to be dislodged.
Hope this be of some help. Pls post back should you need additional information.
Good luck, kind regards and thank you for using FixYa.

Power steering fluid level, if ok, it sounds like your power steering pump is weak and needs replacing. All the best
