Check of a side play of a steering


  1. To lower the left lateral glass. To put the car on the parking brake, to start the engine.
  2. Give a hand outside through a window and turn a wheel shortly to the left-to the right.
  3. Whether the left wheel from direct situation immediately how you turned a wheel is turned? Watch a rim because the elastic tire can "swallow" part of the movement.

Steering side play reasons

The side play in the steering mechanism can be caused by the following:

  • Gear lath of the steering mechanism. The side play arising here, perhaps, will give in to elimination by adjustment.
  • The broken hinges of cross steering drafts or rubber and metal support on the steering mechanism.
  • Defective hinges on the jointed safety steering column.
  • The faulty elastic disk coupling between the steering mechanism and a steering column.
