Re: [DML] Shaky Steering

I would check the metal mesh part that goes around the steering column. 
Get down and stuck your head under the column, and look up while shining 
a light on the shaft.  If you see any broken parts to the mesh then it 
is time for a new steering column (I have replaced mine twice now).

VIN 3472
