    Broke the Accessory belt tensioner. Any way to remove it without using the wrench connection at the base?
    I was replacing the power steering pump and during reassembly the joint where you would put a ratchet in to relieve the tension shattered like it was made of porcelain. I would prefer to not replace the tensioner. I have never had a tensioner that was so difficult ...

      It depends on what is broke? Are you trying to reach the tensioner from up-top? Would it easier to reach it from the passenger side wheel-well? That would mean safely raising and supporting the vehicle and removing the tire. Never trust a jack to hold vehicle, use quality jack stands and use several, on pavement not dirt or grass.

      The correct fix would be replacing the tensioner. I can't tell if it is possible to get a pipe wrench with cheater or something on the tension arm, to release tension? My biggest problem is I can't see anything from here.

      Need more information - when you say the 'steering is crooked' does this mean the steering wheel,or the front wheels?
      Did the wheel alignment shop give a warranty with the work? If yes, then return the vehicle to the same shop for them to correct the 'crooked steering' condition.

    Is it possible to get a different steering wheel.
    I want one that is open at the bottom so I can grip it at the bottom with my palm down. If possible, how costly?

      You've locked the steering wheel. Take the steering wheel and turn it to the left as hard as you can and turn the key at the same time. If you can get the pressure off the steering wheel lock the key will turn and free the steering wheel. I've had this happen to me., If it had locked while trying to turn right then you would have to turn it to the right.

    Would a bad tie rod end cause a wheel bearing to go bad?
    I had a shop replace my ball joints and wheel bearings. They said my tie rod ends needed to be replaced, but I said that I could do those myself. Admittedly I took my time getting around to it, and now a month later, my wheel bearing is bad. Is this a part failure ...
