re: Steering wheel play

It is not the rack and pinion gear. It is definitely in the column. The column is bolted down very well. I will check, if it managed to collapse....
Are there any serviceable bushings inside the column? This is what it really feels like. Neither the .pdf or the diagram shows any internal parts in the column.

There is also a spring that pushes the bushing against the rack, that should provide constant pressure, but springs give out from time to time.


If it is not in the rack, but higher in the column, then it could be the mounting point, or a bushing, or it could be the collapsible column is broken...

Take a look here
