What’s In A Steering Column

As vehicles are becoming more advanced, we are finding technology where it never was before. Sometimes it is in plain sight, such as infotainment systems, GPS, and a head-up display. However, sometimes it is concealed in places one may not expect.

Steering columns have gone from a basic shaft used to transfer movement from the steering wheel to the front wheels, to a highly complex part of the vehicle. This makes it important to recognize these components, know where they are typically located, and understand how they work.

In this series, we looked at several components found in or on the steering column, and the considerations for repairing or inspecting them. Being informed on these systems is important to ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
