I got a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder what size wheel spacers do I need to put aftermarket rims on it


1. You don't need wheel spacers for aftermarket wheels for your vehicle. Who told you did? There are a large number of wheels that will fit straight onto the vehicle and will clear the brakes no problem.

2. You will need hub centric rings with many wheels so that the wheel fits flush onto the hub mounting . The wheel dealers will provide you with the correct size hub rings when you purchase the wheels. The hub rings snap into the wheel center and are fitted to the back side of the wheel center.
What is hub centric ring

3. You need to ensure you use a wheel that is a compatible/suitable offset so that the wheel and tire will not sit too far inside the wheel well so you have sufficient inside clearance as well as sufficient clearance for the brakes. In other words suitable clearance inside and outside. If you are looking at certain wheels that will require a wheel spacer to clear your brakes you are looking at the wrong product and an unsuitable fitment for your Nissan.

1999.5 nissan pathfinder has loose steering wheel


My '98 Pathfinder had a lot of excessive play in the steering wheel. I had a big chuck of rubber missing on the front end that had apparently worn out over time. It cost me about $1400.00 to fix it from the dealership.

I need to know how to remove my steering wheel


If you don't know how to remove your steering wheel I wonder why you should even be messing around in there.

Anyway, it's your car.

You can purchase what's called a "Steering Wheel Puller" for a few dollars. It is a round metal thing with holes in it. You put bolts through it into where your steerl wheel bolts go.

The other method with the rubber mallet is for experts only.

Steering wheel changes


Here is the simple steps to change the old steering wheel and install the new one.

Remove the Original Steering Wheel

1.Read instructions that come with the steering wheel, and gather the following tools: screwdriver, pliers and a puller.
2.Point wheels straight ahead.
3.Disconnect battery or pull horn fuse before removing the old wheel. This prevents the horn from shorting out or blowing during installation.
4.Remove the horn mechanism by doing one or more of the following steps: Press down on the horn cap or ring and turn; remove the emblem cap from its snapped-in position by grabbing it and pulling it toward you or prying it loose; or if the horn ring is secured by screws that are concealed in the rear side of the wheel spokes, use a screwdriver to remove the screws and the ring.
5.Remove horn wire or spring-loaded metal plunger from plastic housing by either pulling straight out on the metal plunger or, on most models, by twisting the plastic sleeve to the left and then pulling out. Cut the wire off the plastic sleeve and keep the sleeve for later use.
6.Remove the shaft-nut retainer clip, if it is present, and keep for later use. Remove the shaft nut, which holds the wheel to the shaft.
7.Mark the shaft at the twelve o'clock position so that you will know where to position the top of the new wheel.
8.Insert a conventional puller into the two tapped holes which appear in the hub of the old wheel and pull off the steering shaft.
9.Remove the original wheel.

Installing the New Steering Wheel

1.Place the small tubular metal sleeve down over the steering shaft.
2.Position hub on splined shaft, making certain that the shaft is properly positioned using the mark you made in step 7. You may have to rotate the plastic horn contact tube slightly to align it with the appropriate hole through the hub.
3.Insert plastic sleeve and spring from step 5 without wire into plastic horn housing. If the plastic sleeve extends above the top bolt surface of the custom hub, cut down the sleeve so that it is 1/8-inch below the top of the hub. Remove sleeve.
4.Insert through the plastic sleeve the wire lead that was supplied in the wheel kit. One end will not pass through the sleeve. This bell-shaped end will go into the horn contact housing. Insert the sleeve and wire into the housing and lock into position.
5.Route wire around the hub from the ten o'clock position to about the two o'clock position to properly align wheel. Position post cover and wheel on hub. Make certain that the wire lead passes through the appropriate holes in the two o'clock position. Using the three shoulder bolts provided, fasten the hub, post cover and wheel together, but do not tighten.
6.Check wheel for proper positioning. If correct, reinstall the shaft nut from step 6 and tighten. Reinstall shaft-nut retainer clip. If the retainer does not fit into the groove on the shaft, tighten the nut until it will fit as originally located.
7.Remove shoulder bolts and reinstall them through the retainer ring with the fiber side toward you. Tighten the shoulder bolts with caution - excess torque will result in damage to the hub. The shaft nut, if correctly tightened, will firmly hold the hub and wheel assembly on the shaft.
8.Connect wire lead to the connector on the retainer ring. Position spring on center nut. Align the dimples of the horn cap with reliefs in fiber material and push into the dimples past the fiber. Turn cap left or right until tight.
9.Reconnect battery or replace fuse.

Steering wheel just spins and the wheels dont turn


sounds as if the rubber bushung is worn out on the steering column. open your hood find where the column comes out of the firewall look down the column to see if you can see the bushing looks like a rubber doughnut once you locate it check to see if its torn in two if so youll need to replace it. its usually held in with 3-4 bolts.

How to get the blinker switch assembly out of a 1966 oldsmobile 98?


1966 Olds 98?
It's been a while, so bear with me. The main objective is to remove the steering wheel, to have access to the turn signal switch.

1.Negative battery cable disconnected

2.I believe you twist the horn button in the middle of the steering wheel, and pull up, to remove. The horn button should have a ring of thick rubber on the bottom, which keeps it in the steering wheel. The chrome piece under the horn button may come off with it, or it stays on the steering wheel. This is the part that is fuzzy to remember.

3.Remove the steering wheel nut, and lock washer.

4.If you do not have a steering wheel puller, go to your nearest auto parts store, and see if one is available to rent. The cost of this puller is relatively low, so you may just want to go ahead, and purchase one. While you're there you need to obtain another tool also. Steering Wheel Lock Plate Tool.

5.After the horn button is removed, and the steering wheel nut, you will see a flat metal area of the steering wheel. On each side of the threaded part of the steering column shaft, there are two small threaded holes, in this flat metal area.

The steering wheel puller, is a bar shaped piece of metal, that has a threaded hole in the middle. There is a threaded shaft that goes into this hole. On each end of the metal bar are slots. Threaded bolts go through these slots, and line up with the two threaded holes in the steering wheel. There is a pointed tip, that rotates on the threaded shaft, of the steering wheel puller. This pointed tip goes in the middle of the steering wheel shaft. (The shaft that you removed the nut from)

Find the two correct threaded bolts in the steering wheel puller kit, that matches the threads in the steering wheel holes. They HAVE to be the correct size, AND the correct thread. (Fine thread, or Coarse thread. They will be SAE thread, and not Metric) If the puller does not come with bolts, or the correct bolts, you'll have to purchase them separately.

Place the puller on top of the steering wheel shaft. Run the threaded shaft of the puller down, until at least 3 to 4 threads of the shaft, are showing on the steering wheel side. Now place a threaded bolt in the slot on the outside part of the bar.

Run the bolt down into the steering wheel threaded hole on one side. Make sure it goes in at least 1/2 inch. Do the same with the threaded bolt for the other side.
Adjust the length of the threaded shaft of the puller, so that the two outside bolts will go in as advised. Adjust the threaded shaft out, or in. Be SURE the two threaded bolts, are threaded down into the steering wheel the same depth, and the bolts are the same length!

Now turn the threaded shaft of the steering wheel puller in, with a ratchet and socket, to remove the steering wheel. (Turn the shaft to the Right)

6.Now remove the steering wheel lock ring. The steering wheel lock ring tool is now used.
There is a cylindrical shaped piece that has threads on the inside of it, and has a hole at the top, that a lock pin slides through, for the above tool. This cylindrical shaped piece is threaded down onto the steering wheel shaft.

The tool has a handle shaped like a screwdriver handle, and a shaft attached to the handle. The shaft goes down into the cylindrical shaped piece. Then the lock pin goes through the cylindrical shaped piece, and also a hole in the shaft of the tool. This lock pin locks the cylindrical shaped piece to the shaft of the tool.

BEFORE the cylindrical shaped piece is pinned to the shaft, you slide a U shaped piece up on the shaft. (Thought it would be better to explain it this way)
The opening of the U, goes down towards the steering wheel. It's U shaped to clear the steering wheel shaft.

As you turn the handle of the tool to the right, it pushes the U shaped piece down. The U shaped piece then depresses the steering wheel lock ring down.
(There is a Thick metal spring under the steering wheel lock ring)

You have to take a metal pick, and a small flat tip screwdriver, and remove the round snap ring. May take a little finesse, and a few tries. Use patience. Now back the steering wheel lock ring tool off. (Turn to the Left) The steering wheel lock ring will come up, so that you can take it off. Remove the spring. Remove the plastic horn contact assembly. Now you can see the screws to remove the turn signal switch.

I have just changed the indicator/wiper arm (this unit is all in one comm 2000)and steering wheel,i have put the original air bag unit back on,and now the horn does not work and the air bag light is on and...


you have to be careful with the airbag connectors, they may look fitted but sometimes they dont go fully in - so check. on the steering wheel there is a black earth wire connected to a male connector, you need to cut the end off the wire and put a round earth terminal on it, then drill a small hole in the metal part of the steering wheel and fit a self tapping screw through the electrical connector you fitted and screw it into the hole you drilled. that is the usual cause for the horn not working e.g. bad earth connector on steering wheel. if you are not sure ask someone that knows about electrics

HORN BLOWS WHEN I TURN MY STERRING WHEEL


I also had this problem along with a clunk sound when I turn my steering wheel. After disconnecting the battery for 30 min I proceeded to take off the 3 small covers on my steering wheel and then take off the 2 bolts that hold my airbag on. What I found was what looks to be a piece of metal the used to be attached to 3 small rubber pillars that went to a small thin piece of metal that was screwed into the steering wheel housing that had all 3 of the rubber pillars broken and big metal piece was just flopping around inside the steering wheel causing the horn to go off when I turned. No one can tell me what this part is so I just removed it and put it back together and every thing seems to be working fine now. It did not seem to have any thing to do with the Airbag as the airbag came off in 1 piece. It has been suggested to me that it was some sort of balancing weight for the steering wheel. Even the Nissan dealer could not tell me what it was. Any ways it seems fine with out it. DW
