Broken Torq Screw - Blinker - Squeeky Steering

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have come upon a few rather peculiar problems that I have not been able to find solutions for in the archives, and wonder if anyone has any guidance, am most grateful.

1- I removed sunvisors for badge removal. When reinstalling, both of the two female torq screw nuts (that are encased in the A-pillar/frame, and used to secure the exterior visor bracket) have cracked inside their holes, so the male torq screws do not catch. Guess I tightened too hard...Now I can't screw in the bracket. Spoke to Sunset, they were not sure if there is a replacement female nut, said if they are inside the frame, a body shop may need to open up that part to access them or, drill them out and install something like a "Nutsert". Hmm....My thoughts are perhaps I can drill them out and re-thread the hole for a new, slightly thicker male torq screw. Weird problem, and a bit of a bummer. Anyone experience this, or suggestions?

PS Mod: I am seriously considering removing the visors entirely, and modifying the brackets (metal and small plastic one) by removing the pins, drilling, inserting black plugs, and installing the holding brackets only, to have a clean, sun visorless A-frame. Looks really clean without the visors. Thoughts?

2- Steering wheel exerts a mild squeek when I turn at middle speeds. May just be lube, thought it was nothing serious..until..

3- My blinker stalk no longer return to neutral once I have cornered and straightened out.

Thanks for any advice or guidance.
