On my altima 96 when I'm parking or turning extremely slow the steering wheel somewhat locks


Hi, can you tell if it's the lock in the steering column or something with the power steering instead? If it feels like the power steering, check the belt for looseness and tighten as needed. If it feels like it's in the column, your locking assembly may be coming loose inside. Below is a procedure for removing the steering wheel lock for inspection. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The steering lock/ignition switch/warning buzzer switch assembly is attached to the steering column by special bolts whose heads shear off upon installation. The bolts must be drilled out to remove the assembly or be removed with an appropriate tool. The bolts may also be removed with a hammer and chisel by notching the bolts and tapping them counterclockwise with the hammer and chisel.
The ignition switch or warning switch can be replaced without removing the steering lock assembly. The ignition switch is on the back of the assembly and the warning switch is on the side.


CAUTION The models covered by this guide may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Chassis Electrical .

  1. Disable the air bag system by disconnecting the negative battery cable and waiting at least 10 minutes, prior to starting this procedure.
  2. Remove the steering column covers.
  3. Remove the steering wheel.
  4. Remove the spiral cable assembly.
  5. Remove the combination switch from the steering column.
  6. Remove the steering column support nuts and lower the steering column.
  7. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  8. Remove the bolts that secure the steering lock and remove the steering lock assembly.

To install:
  1. Install the steering lock assembly and secure with new shear type bolts.
  2. Connect the ignition switch wiring harness.
  3. Raise the steering column and secure with mounting nuts. Tighten the mounting nuts to 11-14 ft. lbs. (15-19 Nm).
  4. Install the spiral cable assembly.
  5. Install the combination switch.
  6. Install the steering column covers.
  7. Install the steering wheel.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

Remove fxstb 2005 rear wheel


Take the nut off the rear axle and remove the axle. You may have to remove part of the exhaust system to get the axle out. You also may have to change the axle adjustments to loosen the final drive belt. Make notes of where the various spacers go and in what direction they go in. Raise the rear end of the bike up high enough to get the wheel out from under the bike.
