We Offer Customers Steering Repairs in Barrie Including:


  • Power steering belt replacement: The power steering pump is responsible for providing hydraulic pressure to help you steer your car easily. Over time, the pump can wear out, leak or stop working altogether, requiring replacement.


  • Power steering pump replacement: The power steering pump is responsible for providing hydraulic pressure to help you steer your car easily. Over time, the pump can wear out, leak or stop working altogether, requiring replacement.


  • Steering rack and pinion replacement: The steering rack and pinion work together to convert the rotational motion of your steering wheel into the linear motion needed to turn the wheels. If they become damaged or worn, you may experience difficulty steering or even lose control of the vehicle.


  • Steering column repair: The steering column connects the steering wheel to the rest of the steering system. If it becomes damaged or worn, you may experience problems with steering, such as a loose or wobbly steering wheel.


  • Steering fluid leak repair: If your power steering fluid is leaking, it can cause your steering system to malfunction. This is usually caused by a damaged or worn seal, hose or pump.


It's important to have any steering problems addressed promptly to ensure your safety and avoid further damage to your vehicle.

Power Steering Belt Replacement in Barrie


There are a few symptoms that you may notice if your power steering belt needs replacement:


  • Squealing noise: If you hear a high-pitched squealing noise coming from the engine bay, it could be a sign that the power steering belt is worn out and needs to be replaced. This noise is caused by the belt slipping or not providing enough tension, which can cause it to slip on the pulleys.


  • Difficulty turning the steering wheel: If you notice that it's harder to turn the steering wheel than usual, or if the steering feels jerky or stiff, it could be a sign that the power steering belt is slipping or not providing enough power to the steering system. This can make it harder to steer the vehicle, especially at low speeds or when parking.


  • Visual inspection: If you inspect the power steering belt and notice that it is frayed, cracked, or worn down, it's a clear indication that the belt needs to be replaced. You can also check the tension of the belt by pressing down on it with your finger. If it feels loose or has a lot of give, it may need to be tightened or replaced.


If you notice any of these symptoms, it's important to have your power steering belt checked and replaced if necessary. Driving with a worn or damaged belt can cause further damage to your vehicle's steering system and put you at risk of losing control of your vehicle.

Power Steering Pump Replacement in Barrie


There are a few symptoms that may indicate a need to replace the power steering pump in a vehicle. Here are some of the most common ones:


  • Whining noise: One of the most common signs of a failing power steering pump is a whining noise that occurs when turning the steering wheel. The noise may become louder as the RPMs increase and may indicate that the pump is not functioning properly.


  • Difficulty steering: If the power steering pump is failing, you may notice that it is more difficult to turn the steering wheel, especially at low speeds or when parking. This is because the pump is not providing enough hydraulic pressure to assist with the steering.


  • Leaking power steering fluid: A leaking power steering pump is often the result of a damaged or worn-out seal. If you notice a puddle of fluid under your car, it may be a sign that the power steering pump needs to be replaced.


  • Stiff steering: Another symptom of a failing power steering pump is stiff steering. This can happen when the pump is not providing enough hydraulic pressure to assist with the steering, and you may feel like you need to use more force than usual to turn the steering wheel.


If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to have your power steering inspected to determine if the power steering pump needs replacement.

Steering Column Repair in Barrie


The symptoms that are specific to a steering column repair will depend on the specific issue with the steering column. However, some common symptoms of steering column problems that may require repair include:


  • Difficulty turning the steering wheel: If you are having trouble turning the steering wheel, or it feels stiff or jerky, this could be a sign of a problem with the steering column.


  • Strange noises when turning the wheel: If you hear clunking, grinding, or other strange noises when turning the steering wheel, this could indicate a problem with the steering column.


  • Loose or wobbly steering wheel: If the steering wheel feels loose or wobbly, or if it moves excessively, this could indicate a problem with the steering column.


  • Steering wheel not centered: If the steering wheel is not centered when driving straight, this could indicate a problem with the steering column.


  • Ignition key won't turn: If you can't turn the key in the ignition, or if it gets stuck, this could indicate a problem with the steering column lock.


If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is best to have your steering column inspected to diagnose the problem and recommend the necessary repairs.

Some Tips To Extend Power Steering Repairs in Barrie


To extend the life of your power steering repair in Barrie, Ontario, there are a few precautions you can take. One important step is to avoid driving on rough or uneven terrain, as this can place undue stress on your vehicle's power steering system. Some examples of such roads in the area include Ridge Road, Snow Valley Road, and Big Bay Point Road.


Similarly, you should be careful when carrying heavy loads in your vehicle, especially if you plan to transport materials like concrete or gravel from places like Hanson's on Saunders Road or Lafarge on Bayview Drive. Overloading your vehicle can strain the power steering system, causing it to wear out faster. To prevent such issues, be sure to stay within the recommended weight limits for your vehicle.


Finally, you should be mindful of the condition of your power steering system when driving in areas with lots of curves or sharp turns, such as Lakeshore Drive or Bayfield Street. Taking these precautions can help to prolong the life of your power steering repair, ensuring that your vehicle remains safe and reliable for years to come.
