Steering knock issue (FD)
« June 12, 2019, 20:55:02 »
I was reading this post: Steering Knock (I couldn't reply, it's locked or I'm forum retarded)

I think my partners car has this issue (quite badly). So I want to tackle it on the weekend.

Can someone point me to the TSB?:
TSB# HFE08-61-P020-FDHD (14 page PDF)

And do you know the Hyundai part number for the bush? What am I supposed to ask for?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome Tezza,

Threads do get locked after a certain time (so you are not retarded) 

This one is supposed to be better than an original (wouldn't be hard- or maybe it is!) it appears to be called a coupling or bush.

I can't help with the TSB (hopefully someone else can)

Have you watched any of the many videos on You Tube about it?

This was a dfferent problem

Hi Dazz,
I agree...it's a good one all right. This is the first one that actually looks simple to do for the average weekend mechanic.
Thanks for the link. :goodjob:

Dazz has already give n this but you would have found it if you did read the thread.

I got my part from ebay the item is over now but it was similar to this. Just get it sent from korea, the aussie sellers are overpriced.

I figured if it was crap I could get the $28 hyundai dealer one. Its looked legit when I got it, so I used it.

Nah I wont be doing them for beer, though one could refine his skills and make some money out of this repair. I think the reason I posted, Is to say I think the kinda of person that can install say a car stereo and general servicing could do this job, if they take their time and don't force anything. I had my doubts as the TSB document is daunting but really once you skip taking the steering wheel off and leave the column in one piece it isnt that bad. Though its the kind of job that if you stuff up and break something it could cost you big bucks. Also you want a helper to lift the column back into place I think. And you really don't want to stuff up the position of the steering and need a re-calibration. That would be a pain. When you start the car again the EPS light will be on as it does every time you disconnect the battery - so dont freak out, you just need to start it, turn full lock Left to full lock right, turn it off again, restart and the EPS will go out.

As to questions regarding what drives the failures, i think there is alot of load on the piece of rubber/plastic considering the amount of torque pushed through it and the shock loads it would see. The oily greasy shavings I got out were very sticky. Like dissolved as nzenigma stated. I believe that it is a bad quality part that starts breaking down, but it is possible that the oily stickiness and disintegration is related to the amount of stress thats placed on the part. Another factor could be a highway miles thing. My car got to 150k but it did alot of highway miles with the previous owner - so less turns. City cars may fail earlier.
