A TAM Linhas Aereas Airbus A330-200, registration PT-MVS performing flight JJ-8082 from Sao Paulo Guarulhos,SP (Brazil) to New York JFK,NY (USA), was on final to runway 31R descending through about 1000 feet MSL about 90 seconds prior to touch down when the crew reported they needed to stop on the runway having just lost nose gear steering prompting tower to have two other aircraft already on final for 31R swing over to 31L for landing. The Airbus continued the approach, touched down safely and stopped on the runway. The crew requested a tow truck, the tower reported the nose wheel appeared to be turned sideways.
The runway was closed for about 25 minutes as a result.
The aircraft was able to depart for the return flight JJ-8081 with a delay of 3:20 hours.
