Steering wheel loose?
« on: April 18, 2014, 07:22:06 PM »
I knew my wheel was a bit loose feeling and if you grabbed the top edge and pulled toward you, it would have some flex.  
Little did I know it would result in this kind of failure.  The entire plate just ripped.  So, this is a public service announcement to check this if you have any play at all.  
Luckily I was just in a tight parking spot and not in traffic.  I don't think during normal driving that much torque is placed on the mounting plate.  
I didn't know I was such a he-man.  Time to get that new wheel I wanted.  :)
