Steering wheel slipping

1984 Club Car Electric:
Steering wheel turns but the wheels don't.
It just clicks like a gear is slipping.
If I pull up on the steering wheel, it will steer.


Welcome to the forum...

Check the steering link, that connects the steering shaft and the steering gear together. 12mm bolt at the top or bottom may have come loose.

Let us know if that was the problem.

That sounds about right but I think it is 10mm. LOL If that is tight, and is turning in the gear box, well, it looks like it may be time for a new one. Or you could just tear it apart and put some sort of spacers in it so it is "pulled up" all the time. It is not hard to switch out. Just a pain to get to the bolts. I recommend taking the time to remove the front body. Makes a world of difference.
