03 chev 1/2 ton 5.3 steering shaft

10 posts in this topic

i have a rattle in the steering all joints are tight so im assuming its the intermidate shaft. do i need to worry about the srs coil when i pull it apart to change the shaft. i am not sure about the air bag system. it looks like i need to drop the column to remove the shaft.

I'm not positive but I think GM had a recall on that part

Just had my 06' Silverado in for the same thing! I wasn't impressed seeings how my truck only has 26,000 miles on it! All in all this one has been kind of a lemon all around! It's the 7th Silverado I have owned and it's turning out to be the worst one from a quality standpoint! Good Luck with your repair!

In a word Yes! "Clocking" is very important to air bag operation.

Its always a good idea to secure the steering wheel so it cannot turn when disconnected. Its also not a bad idea to mark them with tape to keep it lined up correctly and if you want to be real safe disconnect the battery.

Recalls that are safety related generally do not have a time or mileage limit. It might be worth having a GM dealer run your vin number and see if it is covered

As far as I understand it the intermediate steering shaft issue did not have a recall. They've changed their tune on what the "fix" is over the years, but it's always been a warranty fix or you pay for it if it's out of warranty.

Typically it is fixed with an intermediate steering shaft lube kit.

I just had mine('04 GMC Sierra) done two weeks ago at the dealership and it was $52.

I am bringing my 2004 GMC in for the second time for this problem. It was fixed under warranty last time and they said they will cover the cost this time if it is the same problem. I'll know more by Wednesday night, but I bet they find something just a little bit off from last time and will not cover the cost......time for that extened warranty to kick in.

    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
