i had received a paper in the mail from GM a few months ago about them recalling the steering and I have to take it in to the dealership and they will fix it.

but I was very busy at the time, lost the paper and not sure if it has to go to a certain dealership. or how i do it.

does anyone know anything about this?

Go to any Pontiac or GM dealership and tell them that you have been receiving these lockup symptoms. They will offer to fix it under warranty. Done. You don't need the paper since GM sends bulletins to all the dealerships about this stuff.

The paper would make the process easier, but it isn't required. I had to get my dealership to ship the parts in since they didn't have the parts locally.

2005 G6 and some 2006 G6 were recalled for electric power steering intermittant failure. So depending on year and VIN, there may be an actual recall or just a service bulletin about greasing to get rid of clunking in linkage. But any GM dealer can tell you what has been recalled, if anything, on your vehicle.

Posted this elsewhere.... though i'd copy/paste here as well...

There is a TSB (10183) that will replace a faulty electric power steering assist up to 100,000 miles. Not sure why that's not a sticky somewhere. Maybe it is, i'm new here :)

here's the official Doc / Letter to owners.
