  • Shaft
  • Column
  • Gearbox
  • Tie rods, etc.

Signs of a faulty steering assembly

You should never ignore the tell-tale signs of a faulty steering system, as delaying these increases the risk of accidents. If you come across any of the following symptoms, we advise you to drive down to our facility.

    • Excessive play

Play in the steering wheel refers to when more than 1 to 1.5-inch turns in the steering wheels does not rotate the front wheels. This is extremely dangerous, as car owners may not be able to determine the relative position of front wheels correctly.

Excessive steering play is usually caused due to wear and tear in the steering racks and tie rod ends.

    • Delayed or failing steering response

Another common sign you should not ignore is a delayed steering response, especially while manoeuvring a turn. This is an indication of low power-steering fluid, misaligned steering shaft and column or free play in various steering components.

At AP Tyres, we only use OE-grade spares to conduct steering replacement Rotherham to ensure maximum safety and longevity of the parts.

    • Squealing noises and vibrations

Vibrations in the steering wheel are a tell-tale indication of friction between locking or wedging steering components. This situation leads to the parts wearing out quicker than usual. Meanwhile, squealing or whining noises in the car cabin are an indication of dropping fluid levels in the electric steering system.
