    Steering Rack Adjustment Service in Hamilton

    About steering rack adjustmentSteering Rack Repairs Hamilton NZ

    When you buy a new car, the steering will feel tight and responsive with almost no play. However, your steering may feel looser over time. When it gets to the point where it affects your ability to control the car, you should get the steering rack inspected by a professional. As well as being a safety issue, looseness or noise in your steering wheel can also lead to yourt car failing its Warrant of Fitness.  

    The steering rack is an essential part of your car’s steering system. It consists of a rack enclosed with a steering pinion. It is connected to the steering wheel through the series of shafts and U-joints. Over time, these parts can become loose, worn or damaged and need adjustment or replacement. A steering rack adjustment will give a mechanic the chance to fine tune your steering system, taking note of any parts that need to be repaired or replaced. After a steering rack adjustment, you will likely notice that your steering is much tighter, more responsive to your actions and works with less play. 

    How does the steering rack work?

     

    Symptoms of steering rack issues:

    • Steering feels loose – If your steering wheel requires constant correction in order to stay in a straight line, you may have a problem in one of your steering rack’s components.
    • Steering wheel shaking – A shaking steering wheel often indicates that the steering rack is either damaged or in need of adjustment. This shaking will often increase at higher speeds. 
    • Noises from steering system – You may notice clunking or grinding noises when you turn your steering wheel. These can be caused by the parts in your steering rack not moving correctly.
