How does the flywheel come apart? My wheel is stiff. Is that normal?


The flywheel is attached to the crank shaft and turned by the starter to get the engine running. It has nothing to do with the steering wheel. If your steering wheel is stiff it is because of the power steering pump or rack & pinion.

05 Maxima squeeking from front. changed control arm and 2 motor mounts and still


The steering column shaft mounts to the rack and pinion steering gear with a type of u-joint and a pinch bolt to hold the steering column shaft tight on the rack and pinion stub shaft. This coupling may have gotten loosened, so you should check it. It is all hidden by the boot over the steering column on the floor. If you can get the boot to slide upward a bit, I think you can see the coupling. Or, you may need to look at it from underneath. The rack's stub shaft is on top of rack right where the steering column would come from the floor.
Here's an idea: put the front up on jack stands or blocks. Then you could watch and listen while someone turns the steering wheel back and forth.

Hi there,

it could be:

>wheels rubbing on inside of wheel arch
>steering linkage hitting something

Try putting the car on a lift/ if you can, and get someone to steer it full lock to full lock both sides whilst you observe the steering mechanism, then you might be able to see what's happening.

Have a nice day :)

Steering wheel moves 1/2 inch to the side


It sounds like the upper steering colomn bowl is loose. The bolts come up from the bottom and hold the lower portion of the steering wheel cover to the upper. The steering shaft runs down thru the middle of both. If loose the steering wheel will rock side to side in the upper bearing race, not holding the shaft tight or straight. Its actually easier to remove the entire steering colomn, turn upside down and tighten. Remove the lower steering shaft at the firewall (mark the spline alignment). Disconnect the electrical connections at the lower colomn. Disconnect shifter (if not floor console shifter). Unbolt from dash and remove the entire colomn, with wheel attached. Flip over and chek the lower bolts for tightness. It can be done from disassembling the colomn, but its a lot of work and lots of little pieces to loose.

Replaced serpintine belt for power steering, alternator and crank shaft but belt still squeels. And appears to be tight. Slack is of 1/4 in..Is there one of these three components froze up. Power steering...


The crank shaft is not froze up if the engine is running. Without knowing how severe the situation is, it is probably best to remove the belt and feel each pulley or drive wheel to detect the condition of the bearings. It should be very clear which pulley bearing is loose by "wiggling" the pulleys. One of the pulleys will have a lot of play in the bearing. Also the pulley with the bad bearing will be hard to turn by hand with the belt off. Be sure to check every pulley on that belt circuit, except the crank shaft, you can't turn it by hand.

Loss of steering


Sounds like you broke a tie rod end, or a steering linkage connection.

Do you see anything that connects to the wheels hanging down?
Open the hood, and look at where the steering column shaft goes down. Can you see it turn? (this will take to people to see)
If that shaft turns, where it connects to the wheels, look at the tie rod (the long rod that connects to both front wheels), do you see it move?
