So the steering shift that connects to rack and pinion can only go on one way? But the other end of shaft that connects to steering wheel can be put on multiple ways?

The steering rack and shaft need to be replaced. If you notice that your steering is a lose wheel. Your steering should be tight and firm as you drive. And if your driving at a fast speed. You constantly have to hold the wheel tight and correct your steering to avoid drifting left or right. This is signs if a failing sterling rack or shaft. Or a broken or worn stabilizer bar or sway bar

What does that play in the intermediate steering shaft feel like. A lot of Cobalt's are having trouble with a plastic gear in the main column where the power steering is.. Is there a test to know the difference?

Do you happen to know what the torque specs are for the rack?

Ed milewski says:

I have to ask do you need to have rack and pinion that you replaced reprogrammed after replacement like you did..cus I want to change mine out but some say something has to be programmed but I don't see why?

Justin Caouette says:

Anyone done this on a Cobalt and had trouble getting the rack to clear the transmission mount?? Realllly don't want to drop the sub frame but it almost seems impossible without doing so..

My car will no longer turn. Right but turns left, the steering wheel is very loose when turning right and won't turn the wheels. I think it's the rack and pinion I removed the stearing shaft and that seems fine… Any opinions on why this is happening?

Eric Melo says:

Great video. Watched this 1 last summer for the steering shaft and today for the rack. Lack of hydraulics makes this so rasy. Thank you!!

Carlos Danger says:

Thank you!!

William Rowe says:

Any chance you can let me know those torque specs? I need em for inner and outer tie rod, as well as intermediate shaft. Am not replacing the rack. I would be greatly appreciative
