RepairPal Expert Overview:

The lower steering shaft where it fits into the steering gear has a retainer collar that may not be fully installed. This could cause the shaft to separate from the steering gear, which could cause a loss of steering control. Dealers will inspect the collar for proper positioning and adjust it as necessary.
