hey fellas

ok i have a few problems with my mazda, ever since i hit a curb last summer ive been getting shakey steering colum shakey car... ive done some recent work on her replacing ball joints and axels, could a rotor be warped? what else would make it shake so much, the tires and balanced and ive done an alignment couple days ago...

another question how do i fix the side rear window, the glue is coming out and there is wind noise, what glue is recommended to fix the window in place?

First, I bet anything one of your wheels is bent or cracked. I had the exact same problem and couldn't fine the fault for several weeks. Than a friend suggested I just rotated the front wheels to back and the problem was gone. I than rotated each individual wheels around the car until I found the one that was causing the vibration. It would only do it if the wheel was in front for some reason. It turned out there was a hairline crack on the inner side of the wheel and it was causing a slight deformation that would cause the whole car to vibrate above 70mph. So try and rotate the wheels around if you have not already done so, or if you can switch wheels with someone else and see what happens.

Secondly, you can buy any Vinal mixer type adhesive at your local autoparts store. They usually come in a syringe type deal with two tubes, one is the adhesive the other is a hardener. Just use that and it should stick those moldings on easily.

You could have bent any number of things hitting a curb. Lower control arm, tie rod, etc. Put it on an alignment machine yet?
