Steering Wheel Wobble

Hi all. Anyone else with this problem? The Steering Wheel started Wobbling and making a clunking sound recently. Took it to the Dealer this morning. They said the Coupler is bad. Apparently there is a "Rubber Coupler" between the Steering Motor and shaft. I only have about 25,600 Miles. They were kind enough to give me the printout TSB from Hyundai instructing the Techs how to replace the part. Warranty only pays 1.7 Hours. They need to drop the entire Motor assembly out of the dash to disassemble and replace the part.

Steering clunk

I heard that clunk for the 1st time a few days ago. I have a 2011 sedan with 138k miles. I never have like the steering. I hit a few bumps and I heard the clunk. I have heard that same clunk with my daughters 2005 Chevy Cobalt. On that car, the electronic steering "motor" is connected to the steering shaft. There is a plastic type of gear (not sure exactly what to call it) that wears out and there is no way to replace it. I finally replaced the steering "motor" with a used one for cheap and clunking was reduced tremendously. I have not torn into my Elantra's steering yet. I bet it is the same thing. Maybe not. Maybe the Elantra's steering is made a little different.

Thanks for posting. I can't believe they have to drop the motor and such to replace the worn out "washer". That is just nuts. If I ever do tear into mine, I will post my findings.
