Hey.

I was driving out of work and my intermediate steering shaft disconnected for no apparent reason.

I ended up getting the shaft connected back on the rack (that sticks up behind the pedals).

The wheel was turned while the shaft was disconnected.


How am I suppose to get the U Joint all the way on the rack shaft and get the pinch bolt on?

When the rack shaft is all the way in the u joint, the pinch bolt will not go in entirely, the holes don't line up.

When it is partially on (near the top) the pinch bolt will go in, but the u joint is unable to go further down the shaft.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

I don't have a 2010 Service manual, but looked it up on the 2012 manual that I do have. The procedure looked fairly complicated... align this, partially tighten that, etc.
I think there is a link to some free service manuals somewhere on this forum.
You can use the search feature to suss out the free "service manual" for your particular car.
