Vibrating steering wheel on Focus

Asked by Zdenek Vesely

After a small front-to-rear low-speed accident in my 2002 Ford Focus Automatic the radiator was changed and, in another other workshop the timing belt was changed. I now have a vibration of the steering wheel hot or cold, and increases when I slowly turn the steering wheel to the right or to the left. This is very disconcerting and dealers and suspension specialists can't find anything wrong. On dealer agreed with me that I was abnormal, but could not fix it. Could you suggest any reason for this problem, or where to go to have the car examined?

While the crash might have seemed minor the damage could have been more substantial than you think, that they changed the timing belt   would seem to suggest there was some significant damage to the car and that's where I would start investigating. I would suggest you   contact an experienced assessor like Graeme Cuthbert on 0422 444 335 and have them inspect the car and the repairs.
