What is a CV joint?


A wobble in the steering is more likely to be one of

- loose wheel nuts
- loose hub nut
- worn steering tie rod outer joint
- worn steering tie rod inner joint
- loose steering rod universal
- worn steering knuckle ball joint

Out of these a worn or loose steering tie rod joint is most likely. If you can, jack the front of the car up and rest it on axle stands, NOT just on the jack, then have one person shake the front wheel back and forth while holding it at 9 and 3 o'clock, while another holds the steering wheel still. Then look at and feel each joint to see if you can locate the looseness.

Steering wheel loose on a 1996 Honda


Hi there are several things that can make your steering wheel
feel loose. Check that the universal joint that connects to the steering rack from inside the car are not loose by moving the steering up and down, it could also be the steering column bush,(only if the wheel go up and down side ways) check
also the tie rod ends by jacking the car grab the front and back of the wheel and shake in and out to see if you have any loose.(always secure the car on stands ) other than that it could be the rack and pinion steering mechanism that would need to be changed.

I have a 1981 Corvette with tilt steering wheel. The steering wheel has started flopping like something is loose in the steering column. Whats going on? Thanks Jim


You must remove the steering cowl below the steering wheel and see what is loose, broken or worn. It more likely to be a loose bolt, in which case just tighten it and refit the cowl.
Hope that helps

check the steering linkage of the front end for loose components, most can be checked with the vehicle on the ground.
Also , check the Intermediate Steering Shaft for play, this runs between the steering gear box & the lower part of the steering column. it has an expandable section with 2 overlapping shafts that can wear & become loose with age & driving
