I have two questions that have been on my mind for a while with my Monte Carlo 2004 LS:
Question #1: How easy is it to replace the light inside my lock button on the driver's side? Are the lights replaceable, or do I need to buy a whole new lock button? The light inside of it is burnt out as shown below.
Question #2: I notice a lot of play when turning my steering wheel. It's a lot looser than I'd like it to be. I feel like this is also the reason that it can be difficult to keep my car driving straight without it wanting to turn left or right at any tiny bump.
When I'm driving 65-70+ MPH on the highway, I notice my car likes to try and move to the left and right, especially when hitting the tiniest of bumps, causing me to hold on for dear life.
Even going over speed bumps slowly, my steering wheel will start turning in different directions, whereas in other cars I've driven, the steering wheel isn't affected nearly as bad, if at all, when going over bumps.
Ive replaced the tie rods, tires, have done a wheel alignment recently, and struts, and this is still happening. This happened before I replaced these items too. What do I need to replace to fix this? I've never had this happen in any other cars I own except the MC. Is this a sway bar issue? A steering wheel knuckle issue? Do I need to tighten something on the steering wheel? Or is this normal for the MC?
Thanks again, MCF!
