Volkswagen is a large-scale auto market leader that is still manufacturing some of the highest quality vehicles with advanced designs in the industry. VW has had three of their vehicles in the top 10-bestselling list worldwide. Their thorough past in the auto market has been instilled with years of expert knowledge and elite specifications that is put into every vehicle and product they have made, and more specifically, steering parts and components. The VW Jetta started its manufacturing within the brand in 1979, as the sedan version of the Golf model, soon becoming the best-selling European automobile in North America. Each generation since has been extended to be larger and more powerful. This sometimes also means more parts with repairs. You can keep down some of your Volkswagen steering system replacement costs if you regularly examine some of the more basic steering issues at home. First, eradicate the most frequent symptoms of steering difficulty before you bring your Volkswagen to a garage. You can usually fix the shaking and steering pull with some easy to follow steps, like repairing your tires, adding or bleeding power your steering fluid, balancing the front end and lubricating the linkage. Add synthetic hydraulic fluid if needed at about 15,000 miles and allow the fluid settle for around two or three minutes. This will ensure the reservoir is filled. Inspect for any contamination, loose hoses, or leaks. Fluid issues can force your power steering to stop altogether and cause the power steering pump to fail. FCP Euro has an expansive catalog of Volkswagen steering parts and components, including various general parts for the Volkswagen brand. In addition to checking for power steering leaks it is also important to inspect the tie rods as play in the tie rod ball joints can cause loose steering and reduced steering performance. While replacing the tie rods it is also wise to replace the steering rack boots.
To further troubleshoot your Volkswagen’s power steering hoses and system, begin with your wheels if you are experiencing any shakes or steering pulling. Balance and rotate your wheels with every oil change, as well. Make sure to keep the pressure balanced and swap out any worn tires. If your tires are in proper shape, inspect your Volkswagen’s wheel alignment. You should also lubricate and service the dust seals on your Volkswagen ‘s ball joints, tie rod ends and tie rods every 30,000 miles. Any loose linkage, intense friction or part wear, can force your steering to be more difficult and cut down on your control over your vehicle’s direction. After examining these areas, move on to some complex steering parts if the issues continue. Make sure your steering pump has the correct pressure and that your steering rack is secured. Finish your symptom inspection with the parts that are visibly linked to the steering system. Steering issues can be brought on from bad brakes, shocks, springs, ball joints and wheel bearings.
