Steering Wheel Repair

What about the steering wheel?

A steering wheel is part of a vehicle?s steering system and also contains a switch that activates the vehicle?s horn. It also may contain cruise control and audio control buttons. It is connected by a steering column to the steering gear and is used to change a vehicle?s direction.

What do I do if the steering wheel vibrates?

Although there are also other causes of why a steering wheel vibrates, wobbles, pulls to one side, or wanders, it is possible that the steering linkage is loose and needs to be tightened. If the steering wheel is hard to turn, it could be caused by a problem in the steering box assembly, or it could be a problem with the tires or power steering. Other problems might be cracks or material damage, which could require replacement if the damage is severe.

What are my options?

The vehicle can either be taken to a local dealer or repair shop, or the owner can repair it, dependent on the complexity of the problem. There are numerous automotive websites that advertise repair services, sell steering wheel repair kits and parts, and/or offer repair manuals or how-to books.
