Hello. Am having some issues on my steering. It's as if there is something oscillating whenever when I turn my steering. As if a marble is oscillating from left to right. Is it a spiral cable problem? Please advice.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, I'm Danny.

It sounds like you may be having a problem with the air bag clock spring. It is located in the steering column mounted underneath the steering wheel. Here are tutorials showing your possible symptoms and how to replace:

Hello Mr Ken.

The noise is as if a marble or a piece of rock is stuck inside the steering badge cover and it is oscillating from here and there. Will try to send you a video as soon as possible.
