2009 Steering Wheel adjuster failure

Mine just finally failed. Started making intermittant noise 2 years ago, but wouldn't perform at the dealer so they refused to replace it while under warranty (in spite of being a known problem). Turned the car off and the motor kept grinding and drove the wheel all the way down.

There were a few previous threads, but 30' on Search is yielding nothing.

1. Can i just disconnect the harness and have it stay in position and have everything else work OK? Looks like you have to take the SW off, column cover and lower dash to get in there to even see anything. PITA to just look.

2. Someone replaced their own. Part was $250 IIRC. Looking at the SM, I don't see any separate motor. Do you have to replace the whole column assy?

3. Is something else the issue? Is there a separate controller?

TIA for any advice. I'm sure NJJOE will come up with the link in 15'! Kyle

if you can get it to the desired position, you can unplug the motor(s) and it will remain in position. Seat memory functions will be inoperative then.

There are two motors, they are separately replaceable. Drop the knee boolster and remove the upper and lower column trims to replace. No need to remove the wheel, turning it will allow access to the screws behind it. 12mm socket, a Phillips screwdriver and a 6mm allen socket are all the tools needed to replace. Very simple fix. Under .5 hours for both.

you can ID the motors by the threaded jack shafts leading away from them. The one towards the front of the vehicle is the telescope motor.
