How to Fix Wobbly Steering Wheel in Your Car

one, two, three, four! Rev up your engines! It’s time for the Scotty Kilmer Channel Is your
car steering wheel wobbling while you drive down the road well then today’s
your lucky day because I’m going to show you how to fix it
while wobbling is often a suspension problem with a worn on part so lets
jack it up in the air, then you grab the tire at 3 and 9 o’clock and see if it has any play for worn parts which it doesn’t and then grab it at 6 o’clock
and 12 o’clock and see if it wobbles well it’s not wobbling so there’s no
real worn parts that are badly worn and of course do the same thing on the other
side to make sure it doesn’t have any play and it doesn’t now in my experience
if your steering wheel wobbles when you’re driving and you don’t have an
obviously worn-out front-end part that’s often a bad tire or a bent rim so we’re
going to swap the tires back to front that way we can tell if it’s the front
tires that are making the wobbling, now I’m switching the left side to the left
side and the right side to the right side because many tires are
unidirectional you always want them turning in the same direction we’ll put
this side on and you notice I’m using a cheater behind a socket, but I use
the air gun to take them off, you don’t really want to use an air gun to put
them back on you might get them too tight and then you can’t get them off
later these work great for getting them nice and tight, then once you get them
snug you put the car back down on the ground and then finish them so their nice and tight
don’t come off, then of course do the other side put the
front on the back and the back on the front, on they go, then we let the
jack down then finish tightening them up
then we take it for a spin and voila, no more shaking steering wheel, now since the
steering wheel doesn’t shake anymore and I took it on a highway and the vehicle
goes pretty smooth I’m going to leave this alone but if you wanted to figure
out what actually was making a shake, it’s one of these two tires and as you
can see here this rims been screwed up from hitting curbs and stuff I would
assume the rim is slightly bent because when we go to the other side
this one’s perfectly clean it’s not hit so changing the other rim would
probably fix it perfectly but since the car doesn’t shake I’m leaving it the way
it is and the cat seems to agree so if your car steering wheel is shaking
around while you’re driving it might be as simple as just moving the tires from
the front to the back to fix it and remember if you’ve got any car questions
