Users should begin by removing the cover under the vehicle's steering wheel to access the steering shaft. With the shaft free, users can proceed by unscrewing the necessary bolts of the shaft and removing it for a replacement. Typically, repairs may be necessary in the form of individual part replacements.
Before beginning the repair procedure, take safety into account by wrapping your knuckles up with first aid tape and then wearing gloves over them. Many steering shafts begin to gum up after extended use, and it is recommended to wipe down the shaft and reapply grease and oil for smoother operation.
