Wow, that's a lot :thumbup:

For me the work seems to have been successful.
Not that annoying noise anymore.
There is just a little from anywhere outside when driving on really hard roads and... definitely on bad cobblestone the steering wheel (upper bearing inside).

The screws of the latches usually brake when you try to remove them :roll: So I think it is best, if you just want to swap the bushings, you try to unscrew the both front screws first. Carefully and soak them with lot´s of WD40. If they really brake, you can easily reach the welded nuts within the s...

ripped the screws of front swaybar bushings latches (1.6 Liter) off today :banghead: Though I knew, they usually will do so and therefore I used lots of WD40 and tried to unscrew them really very carefully. Then I noticed, why the alternator belt of my SRT was gone lately... Installed a new one toda...

yes, do that. Would be interesting, how yours is. How many miles do you have on the clock ? Today I swapped the front swaybar bushings and retorqued the endlinks. Keep fingers crossed - the rumbling is nearly gone. Will finally make that sure on my usual way to work next week. There are some streets...

You're lucky :D

Surely I'll try it before going on with all the other things, which are harder to do.

But on the other hand - if the bearings and the steering hub on the loose spare column are absolutely tight, I fear, the problem on the other will be and stay the bearing.

We'll see :thumbup:

You kept it and are still riding this way?

Or do you mean, working on the pinch bolt finally fixed it?

My loose column has a bearing, which feels like new ( the one where the pictures are from).

Probably I should remove the steering wheel on the 1.6 and on the SRT to compare.

Aha, now I see :oops: Took a look into the service manual...

That makes it easier to check that.

Anyway I´ll follow the suggestion of a friend who suspected the swaybar bushings for the rumbling noise.
Have to measure the swaybar itself as I´m not sure wether it is about 19mm or 22mm on the 1.6

Steering Column upper bearing

Has anyone ever swapped a defective "steering column head bearing" ? http://www.dodgeowners.de/Neon/steering/Z3_0046.jpg For searching for the cause of the ruttling on my 1.6 I visited some mechanics now. One said that should come from the strut mounts, another said the left inner tie rod end is fau...

Can't imagine to have had such issue ever.
I guess it might be a dirty lens if you mean that no song is played in full length (or do you use CDrs?) or if real random play on a function of your headunit.
Which is installed?

Fuel is a separate sensor.

Your new issues makes me believe more what I stated before.

Get the cluster out and check it.
If you could, try a different one.

If you have access to a DRBII, connect it and look for codes, but I believe there won't be any.

I guess there is something wrong with your clusters connection. P1684 is common and might not matter this time P1685 something wrong with your skim. As you tried your sparekey, the module is left as one possible cause P1687 no connection PCM to cluster (at least I found that on a PT Cruiser forum) A...
