I am not a mechanic but I have owned a lot of problematic cars. I have come to find out that a car can pull to the right while braking due to various reasons. Such as, a caliper that gets stuck and does not work properly, uneven brake wear--get brakes pads, rotors, calipers checked-- an outter tire rod may be worn--unbalanced or uneven wear on tires--or it could be your alignment.All or one of these can contribute to this. Take it to a mechanic and get it checked to be definitely sure.

Remove you foot from the accelerator, hang on to the steering wheel, do not apply the brakes, do not turn the steering wheel, and pray. If your car is in a "hydroplane", you should: -Ease off the accelerator

Worn bushes or warped brake rotor. Replace faulty item.

You can replace a steering wheel cover by first removing the old steering wheel. Once complete, wash and dry clean the steering wheel and then apply your new steering wheel cover.

with your right foot apply pressure to the rightmost pedal under the steering wheel

They stop your car. They are round discs that are kind of attached to the wheels and the pads grip the rotors when you apply the brakes to slow down the car. When a rotor becomes warped due to excessive heat, the steering wheel will shake when you apply the brakes.

high pitched squeal from left front wheel does not stop when I apply the brakes. It will stop when I turn the steering wheel even a little bit but returns when I straighten out again

Gas pedal, brakes, steering wheel

If the steering wheel shakes, but to car doesn't, when applying brakes - your front rotors are warped (if you have disc brakes)...if you have drum brakes, the drum could be cracked or the pads worn unevenly If the whole car shakes, and the steering wheel only seems to react to that, when applying brakes - see above statement, but apply to the rear end. If the whole car shakes, including the steering wheel - all four corners are bad, and you're an accident looking for a place to happen soon. In any case, go to your nearest service center ASAP.

From left to right, the pedals always go clutch, brake, accelerator regardless of which side of the car the steering wheel is on.

Removing the steering wheel is a difficult task to do by hand alone. A person needs to buy a steering wheel puller, follow the directions on the package, it will help remove the steering wheel by apply pressure to the middle of the steering wheel and by pulling the rest of it up.

Have the front rotors turned on a lathe at a dealership. check brakes and rotors

User Avatar

This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.

You probably have severely warped front brake rotors. Machining or replacement of the rotors would be necessary to correct the problem

They drive on the right in Germany, so the steering wheel is on the left.

You probably have rusty/scored brake rotors.

User Avatar

Brake rotors or drums need to be machined or replaced. If it causes steering wheel shaking, check front brakes. If happens when applying parking brake look to rear brake problem.

The Astro Van power steering and brakes work off the same pupm. Check the pump for fluid. If it's full and the brakes and steering still hard you must replace the pump

You will experience the vehicle pull sharply toward the side of the blowout. If you do not panic you should be fine. Lift off the accelerator, and lightly apply the brakes. Hold tight to the steering wheel and once you have slowed to about 10 mph move to the side of the road. Accidents happen because people panic and jerk the steering wheel or slam on the brakes.
