Take Note: FCA releases Steering System Position Statement on steering column repair

Toronto, Ontario — When safe, signal and pull over into the right shoulder—I-CAR has the latest on a new update from FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) concerning steering system inspections and proper replacement procedure after a collision.

The FCA Steering System Position Statement states: “If the vehicle is involved in a collision where the airbag has been deployed or the steering wheel is visibly deformed, then steering column replacement is required. Internal component damage from such an event may not be visible; however, steering column replacement is required.”

The document also provides information on the steering rack/steering gear inspection after a collision. A list of conditions is provided that, if present, will require diagnosis and testing be performed to correct the condition.
